Dead Social Media Sites, Lessons from the Past
An interesting article looking at social media sites like Yik Yak and ConnectU and how they died. https://gizmodo.com/why-these-social-networks-failed-so-badly-1836996164
I think there's a lot to be learned here for the Fediverse. I don't have the spoons to distill all the lessons myself, but a few:
1) Big money often precedes death.
2) Neglect leads to toxic user bases.
3) Losing sight of your initial goals alienates your early users, who do more work than you think to make the place run.

WHAT PEOPLE THINK ETHICAL ISSUES IN AI ARE: wow.... we're creating... new life........
WHAT ETHICAL ISSUES IN AI ACTUALLY ARE: techbros worshiping the almighty algorithm, not caring to look at what bad patterns the machines are picking up (racism, sexism, etc) and how to avert them, and overreliance on neural networks meaning that said algorithms are treated as magical black boxes where nobody wants to (or can, really) point out exactly how the equation works (and why it may be faulty)
Greetings (again) (for the third time) fediverse! I am David: A Webcomic and this is my tertiary(?) profile on Mastodon. I'm a comic writer/artist of varying quality with a series that I've been working on for the past... 10 months now? I think? I've decided to get a .art account to bring my weird drawings and other assorted posts to a larger instance, so I really hope everything works out!
Art, learning, question, resources, help
(@Curator plz boost? 😇)
I want to learn to draw comics, but have no idea where to start. Got myself a couple books on techniques, but they're too advanced for me. Is there an online set of exercises or something, for the very basics?
My short term goal is faces & the human figure. (both male, female).
*Feel free to link as many resources as you can.*
Thanks in advance!
