its fucked up nowadays, you cant just make a thing. you have to make a running series of that thing, which goes on forever, and has a patreon, a mailing list, a discord channel, an official wiki, a fan wiki, a prima strategy guide, its own cryptocurrency, flag, national anthem, nuclear deterrent, etc

@jk prima still writes strategy guides? I thought they died like bradygames did

@jk Don't forget an NFT of some sort.... seems to be de rigueur at the moment.

@jk how to be creative
1. make a thing
2. save in folder
3. don't publish
4. done

@astamite this is what i do! yesterday i did an animation in blender! rendered it and put it into a folder. nice!!

@jk but imagine all the toot engagement(tm) you're missing out on just leaving in there!

@jk Well, my cartoons have been a running thing, but it's only been going on the Web since 1993. No Patreon, no mailing list, no discord channel, no wikis, no crypto, no flag.

The anthem at the moment is Green Day's "American Idiot".

My cartoons are their own nuclear deterrent.

@jk I know right, welcome to content churn city

@jk if you don't need to make money...

And could make a thing on bandcamp? Kofi is (haven't really payed to that one) I guess if thing is popular people ask for more, but that was always the case..

@jk Probably needs its own Mastodon or Pleroma instance, too.


Your chart is ready, and can be found here:

Things may have changed since I started compiling that, and some things may have been inaccessible.

The chart will eventually be deleted, so if you'd like to keep it, make sure you download a copy.

@dhfir Thank you.

Not everyone agrees, but I find it the easiest way to grok larger discussions.

@dhfir I'm working on ways to navigate larger discussions, and in another system I have the ability to reply to multiple nodes, thus drawing together threads that have diverged, but which reach the same point.

Work in progress.

@jk It's a fact! The choking vine that is the Church of the SubGenius has (going backwards) Fediverse, Web page, IRC, usenet, email, CompuServ, comic book, book, radio, magazine, pamphlets... and that's just since 1980!

@onan @jk I remember the old videos for the SubGenius in University on the dorm networks on random network shares.


THAT'S RIGHT - forgot the videos! And before that films! And since then the documentary "J. R. "Bob" Dobbs and the Church of the SubGenius" (Sandy K. Boone, 2019, now available on most of the mainstream streaming / rental services).

@djsumdog @onan @jk we are all one being. can help co-create a new age sylvan food forest community. but yes it does start with cultivating the love and light of the heart within yourself first, so that you may have enough forgiveness, compassion and unconditional love to make community living viable.

@jk if you're critiquing hellsites nuclear stockpile then I'm going to have words

@jk You are still free to not do it even if you use copyleft license. Basically free licenses don't state you to do sharing, but yet they make sure you provide the freedom to share to anyone who got a copy of your program. You can make a program with gpl license and don't share with anyone, but once you shared this program to at least one man, that man will have rights to distribute the program the way the license states.

@w96k @jk Bittorrent is also a great option. It’s great for people and organizations that can’t or don’t want spend a lot on servers. This approach is used by Debian, and even some big companies like Blizzard.

I say fuck all that & just make my things... why the zzt not?

@jk In money based society we play trade game, ir won't be in trade-free society

@jk i make things and leave them sometimes. If you like, Check out for examples of some oneoff micro art projects. Or - i stopped paying for some plugins and the site works but the chat does not. Nobody used it, 300 or so signed up. Experiment from last year. :-) //. Its okay to be done with a thing, Imho- and it feels good to cut it loose too, sometimes. Or can be a learned skill methinks. 🙃

@jk corollary: if you just make a thing, all those other things eventually happen without you.

@jk in short, you have to create A BRAND
