art, nft, svb, rms, ai, aiai, aiaiai, etc
the future isn't that great
Meta is moving away from NFTs, as everyone else, good for them. Remember when Eminem and Snoop Dogg did that NFT song? People were really pushing for it. The great solution for the “starving artist” problem, yeah, I wonder who got rich from it.
nvm, now that web 3 is over the grifters have moved away into AI now. Juicero is about to release its new AI-powered product, they are giving them away if your open a business account at SVB (only for clients who deposit more than 250k)
but fuck that, let’s talk art
and by art I mean anything that you consider art is therefore art, some people will argue that art is only art what a certain group of people consider art, that it might need a historical evolution of the craft or precedence. it’s funny to gatekeep art and filter by purity, craft or senses
you can filter, gatekeep or look down at different arts either because you want to hold your moral ground or because you are laundering money by buying and keeping the art pieces (physical or digital lol, lmao even): whatever works for you. I consider art whatever has intent of being art or whatever evokes some feels or reals or smth idk
to deep dive into feels vs reals I have a video below that thoroughly breaks the history of philosophy, art and science and explains in detail exactly what I’m unable to put into words:
artAI or AIart or
So what is a real artist? How many years of experience do you need to be a real artist? Some companies are asking for 2 to 3 years of Paint, 2 of PS and 4 with crayons for a junior position, others much more!
Absurd to talk about requirements for defining an artist, or is it? I wonder if we can define art like that but let’s not get into loops, let’s get into tools!
we have tools that we use to accomplish what we want, you want it or not, those tools have invaded the different aspects of society and we ain’t ready for them, most people aren’t even ready for social media and its eternal exploitation of your time through doom scrolling BUT LETS GET INTO THIS ANOTHER TIME
not long ago I read the phrase “ai artist..”: we want to label everything to understand it better but does this make sense? same as with “prompt engineer”
understanding and simplifying by labels, put things into boxes, however I think the two labels mentioned are temporary: chatGPT (as well as many models and products that are about to come) are just tools that will allow you to have more throughput - SWE’s can already see this clearly and its limitations, at least some
we (humans!) just make tools to make living our lives easier.
technology is just scary when it grows exponentially
just take some time to chill with parrots like RMS, Juicero AGI is not coming and when it does you just know an Azure service is gonna go down anyway
have a nice day
and go fuck yourself
