I’ve recently read all the brou-haha over this beautiful piece of art and how it has offended some loud person with a keyboard and a loud audience to follow. The artist made a really sweet exit out of the situation (even though all what he had to do it’s drop a bird bomb and tell people to fuck off). If you have any interest about the whole issue you can read it here. I will be a little less classy. Because of this situation and the Rick Remender “controversy" over The Falcon in the current Captain America book, I’ve come to the realization that the eternally-offended people really need to get a life and do other thing than read comic books. Either do that or get off your high fucking horse and stop being so sensitive over everything. Find your flags and causes in the real world where there are a lot of real issues that demand your attention and activism and please let scapism BE scapism.
That will be all on my side. If you fancy a discussion over a point of view you won’t be able to change, I will only answer privately.

"But Dimson realized that it had far greater creative potential. Karpenko’s technology could be used to shoot videos akin to all those shots in Baraka. “It would have hurt me not to work on this,”says Dimson."
I’m not a huge fan of Hyperlapse, but I have to admire the passion and the hard work that the creators put into this. “It would have hurt me not to work on this” is what people who create great things say to themselves.

Comcast Confessions: when every call is a sales call.
"These employees told us the same stories over and over again: customer service has been replaced by an obsession with sales, technicians are understaffed and tech support is poorly trained, and the massive company is hobbled by internal fragmentation."
I hate the story of how a customer service person was pressured to pitch new services to a customer who was 55 days late on her bill.

How to decline requests for free work with style.
Speider Schneider, on David Throne, Webdesignerdepot.com:
"It’s aggravating and demeaning when a business asks for free work. You feel belittled and often foster an urge to prove that you offer a professional service that has actual monetary worth."
The best retort to free work was something along the lines of
Client: “It only would have taken you a few hours to do”
David: “Actually, you were asking me to design a logotype which would have taken me a few hours and fifteen years experience. For free. With pie charts.”
