I’ll never forgive the internet for training a generation of artists and writers to call what they make “content.”

Boxes have contents. You’re a fucking ARTIST. You make ART. Own it.

@fraying yes, this. it’s one of the issue where i go d’accord with stallman – the words we use are important, and we should choose them thoughtfully.
content is a marketer’s concept, who doesn’t care what he panders, just how effectively and in what manner he does so.
if people don’t like the connotations of ‘art(ist)’, we have the beautifully nonspecific ‘maker,’ for example. and we can always make up words to exactly fit our notions of what we do.
