i hate capitalism for making art about *competing* with other artists, rather than collaborating with them.

"you can't go into music its too competitive" "there's a million people more qualified than you"

under communism all the artists will have stable jobs making art they love

& when a kid tells their parents they wanna go into arts, the parents will encourage them, & talk about all their favorite artists that maybe the kid'll get to collaborate with one day.

call me crazy but i think artists could help each other instead of competing they would make better work

Thinking about @LicenseZero's cross-license collaboratives/collectives: xlcollaborative.com/

tl;dr: a manageable way to license software across contributors while doing stuff you usually use companies or foundations for, like long-term project survival, relicensing, etc

I'm Binglin, a nonbinary artist whose day job is at an aquarium doing graphic design. For fun, I like to knit and cook and draw furries. My goal is to keep exploring and growing my personal art practice, and to always keep trying new things. Here are a few different ways I like to work!

(I've got more links and tidbits on my bio 😊)

Things are looking dramatically better now for the matrix.org homeserver on the new hardware - we've gone from the median message-send-time being 1-3s down to 50ms-250ms. DMs particularly should be incredibly snappy now :)

Who's working on transactions in the fediverse? I keep seeing ACTUAL signs of people preparing to leave platforms like Patreon and the company getting ready to shake off lots of people.
