Yes, I waited a while to embrace this particular communication tool, but I'm now official a part of the Twitter world. Want to follow? Just click on the site and add IBJarts to you list.

You can also add IBJdining, which I'll be sharing with Andrea Davis here at IBJ.

What will I be tweeting about? Well, in addition to pointing you toward interesting links, tipping you off to TV programming of note, making pithy comments about entertainment matters, and informing you of last minute arts opportunities, I'll also be giving the heads up on arts bargains, announcing ticket giveaway contests, and more.

One more reason to join: The 20th person who signs up for IBJarts on Twitter today will win a copy of my book "In the Can; The Greatest Career Missteps, Sophomore Slumps, What-were-they-thinking Decisions and Fire-your-agent Moves in the History of the Movies."

Where will you find out who won? I'll tweet it, of course.

Oh, and a question for Twitter vets: What A&E tweets do you find essential or, at least, fun and/or informative? Let us know here.

Your thoughts?

  1. How can any company that has the cash and other assets be allowed to simply foreclose and not pay the debt? Simon, pay the debt and sell the property yourself. Don't just stiff the bank with the loan and require them to find a buyer.

  2. If you only knew....

  3. The proposal is structured in such a way that a private company (who has competitors in the marketplace) has struck a deal to get "financing" through utility ratepayers via IPL. Competitors to BlueIndy are at disadvantage now. The story isn't "how green can we be" but how creative "financing" through captive ratepayers benefits a company whose proposal should sink or float in the competitive marketplace without customer funding. If it was a great idea there would be financing available. IBJ needs to be doing a story on the utility ratemaking piece of this (which is pretty complicated) but instead it suggests that folks are whining about paying for being green.

  4. The facts contained in your post make your position so much more credible than those based on sheer emotion. Thanks for enlightening us.

  5. Please consider a couple of economic realities: First, retail is more consolidated now than it was when malls like this were built. There used to be many department stores. Now, in essence, there is one--Macy's. Right off, you've eliminated the need for multiple anchor stores in malls. And in-line retailers have consolidated or folded or have stopped building new stores because so much of their business is now online. The Limited, for example, Next, malls are closing all over the country, even some of the former gems are now derelict.Times change. And finally, as the income level of any particular area declines, so do the retail offerings. Sad, but true.
