An excellent article in the City Arts Seattle describes what readers and artists lose when a publication gets rid of an experienced arts writer and replaces them with empty space (which is sadly happening more and more these days).  Not only does the experience of the writer disappear but also a chance for nuanced context as well as exposure for artists.  As the writer notes, the blogosphere might be filling in gaps with quantity but not necessarily quality yet.
