The internet didn't change how people interact. 4chan and other forums on the web have corporations behind them. Whether it's advertising or hosting fees, corporations are profiting from hate and abuse.
Documentary interviewee says the Internet was supposed to be this place to freely and openly share ideas, but the technology enables hate crimes, stalking, and abuse.
Now, I'd argue the corporate internet algorithms manipulate people to spend time on their platforms. This means the controversial stuff gets recommended. Those of us who dislike it find our way here to an open and free space.
Many people walk away from politics and voting because it is not free and open as advertised as well.
There is a reason I sign off the interwebs on #wwdc days. I become a nasty human and I want to be better and accepting of all humans. Don't take my outbursts personal. I will see myself out. 👋🏾
Did Apple Trademark Suicide Net™ like they did rounded corners so they can sue other exploitative manufacturers if they put up nets?
The most #latestagecapitalism thing ever is watching a product launch in the middle of a war, a pandemic, and an assault school children daily.
What's the history behind the 'lick and stick' envelope?
Was it created by some sort of fetishist who was into seeing admin assistants' tongues?
Was the lick part a life hack because it was meant to be wet with a sponge?
Was it invented by early mail carriers as a way to reuse their spent horses as glue?
Things I learned from #CircusInPlace last night--
My insecurities push me to give up too soon. It is easy to say, "I suck, or I cannot do this." Practice takes time. Sometimes it takes lots and lots of time and there's nothing wrong with that.
Clowns are not indestructible.
Joy can be found anywhere if you just let go of tension for a single moment.
In order to achieve a goal, one must prepare. Stretching and limbering up in the case of stunts. Maybe meditation or sketching before I art?
Infinite - A laughibly bad film *spoilers*
In no order.
1) Marky Mark
2) Marky Mark voiceover.
3) Chiwetel Ejiofor wants to destroy the world so he stops being resurrected. He shoots people with his magic gun that stops infinites from being resurrected. SO...
4) Pilot who is delivering bomb to destroy world is scared that the plane will crash. Why?
5) Marky Mark's smart ass action hero quips fall so flat.
6) Zero character dev. Marky has superpowers but still surprised he has superpowers?
I put on Infinite while I was creating a protest sign for my 80 yr old neighbor.
It's like someone said, let's make Wanted but worse!
A power outage saved me from all the exposition. I may have to add it to the Film Frown watch list and complete it.
Fed Ex driver: hi i left this tag on your door to inform you to get your own package because i didn't feel like knocking.
Amazon driver: Sorry to interrupt this wedding ceremony, but the owner of the house 2 doors down isn't here by chance? Does anyone have a way to get ahold of them? Sorry but Bezos will murder my grandparents if I don't deliver this.
Writer, video editor, motion graphics occasionally pay me. Creating art and having conversations fuel me.
