i love you, the new inquiry. good read. where are you, rest of the art world? i posted this on my FB earlier today, but i need to say it again:
“I’m throwing mad shade at the art community right now. Why so quiet during all this turmoil?! I see you, cowards, watching from the sidelines.”
"Especially the photographers of the community. A lot of you fuckers are shooting "America" and making books and bullshit to post online and you don’t post anything NOW about what’s happening in America? Stoops"
edit: to clarify my point a bit, i personally believe that artists should be the first ones to show solidarity and outrage, you know?
"White people deploy the idea of looting in a way that implies people of color are greedy and lazy, but it is just the opposite: looting is a hard-won and dangerous act with potentially terrible consequences, and looters are only stealing from the rich owners’ profit margins. Those owners, meanwhile, especially if they own a chain like QuikTrip, steal forty hours every week from thousands of employees who in return get the privilege of not dying for another seven days."
I’ve said this to my non-techie friends countless times. It’s no secret that being able to code makes you a better job applicant, and a better entrepreneur. Hell, one techie taught a homeless man to code and now that man is making his first mobile application.
This looks like a good list of resources. I’ve been sifting through for weeks trying to find good places to learn more intermediate/advanced skills, and it seems to be difficult to get beyond the beginner CodeAcademy-esque resources. Probably because at that point, it’s time to just make some things.
"It looks to me very much like a significant section of the public, having given up on attempting to understand the reality they are actually living in, have instead reasoned that they might at least be able to comprehend the sprawling, meaningless, but at-least-still-finite ‘universes’ presented by DC or Marvel Comics. I would also observe that it is, potentially, culturally catastrophic to have the ephemera of a previous century squatting possessively on the cultural stage and refusing to allow this surely unprecedented era to develop a culture of its own, relevant and sufficient to its times."
