CRASH MANSION 

 

With the Christian Science Monitor announcing that it plans to cease publishing a print edition and move its operations entirely to the Internet and the same strategy reportedly in the works at U.S. News & World Report and other publications, the future of journalism increasingly looks like it’s going to be in the electronic realm. Entering into the competition for online readers is the new site therumpus.net, a compendium of original content, blogs, and stories from around the World Wide Web. The site celebrates its launch with a party on Feb. 5 at 7. With performances by the musicians Will Sheff and Timothy Bracy; readings by James Frey, Andrew Sean Greer, and Jonathan Ames; and an appearance by Starlee Kine, of the radio show “This American Life.” (199 Bowery.
