The OSS bubble that is and the blogging bubble that was – Baldur Bjarnason
“The biggest problem—and this isn’t limited to web development—is how it has baked exploitation into the core worldview of so many people.”
Me, on the OSS bubble in web dev https://www.baldurbjarnason.com/2021/the-oss-bubble-and-the-blogging-bubble/
The Transmutable Swan is now OSHWA certified to be genuine open hardware; my first project to join that prestigious company but certainly not the last.
Hey, I got my art website back up to date finally! Check out http://art.joshmillard.com/ where can browse through my work from the last few years in oil and watercolor painting, stained glass, linocut prints, and my recent dive into plotter drawings.
Hey immersive web folks,
Running a one-day event about all of WebXR development is somewhat impossible because there's so much going on.
I'm hosting an open town hall *this Sunday* to discuss which topics and voices should to be heard in the WebXR Developer Summit on May 25th.
I just pushed "publish" on issue 48 of the Immersive Web Weekly. I usually tweet out several topics that I covered in an issue but this week can be summed up as "🎉 OMG A Fully FOSS Stack 🎉" while imaging a gif of myself dancing on clouds.
PS. A huge thank-you to the lovely folks who provided the German, French, Spanish, and Dutch translations :)
i've tagged out 600+ open source, experimental and tiny tools by their qualities and built a new website for sorting through them!
these are all tools towards joyful digital creation, with the goal of enabling working entirely outside of proprietary systems- moving instead from one hand-made software to another.
(the list takes submissions if it is missing yours >:))
The fundamental core of art as commodity is that its value is in its scarcity and not in its content.
There is a secondary consideration, of making art under capitalism, where artists are motivated to sell art work to pay for food and shelter and the free time to continue making art, and that can't be easily dismissed. Art having a perceived value that justifies paying for it is a problem of this capitalist context. But that should not be conflated with art's value being in its salability.
Eternal newbie. Tall with floofy hair.
