Paul Slocum, software developer who has been curating, conserving, and selling digital art since 2006 wrote an excellent and extensive survey of the effects and problems in the takeover of networked culture by creepto-capital.

He couldn't find a suitable publication for his critical perspective which speaks volumes about the state of media institutions which made a name and raise funding precisely promoting the opposite values to those of blockchain culture and now are totally integrated and participating in the cultural and economic distortion described by Paul.

Do read and share widely.

A little intro:

I'm fabian from Switzerland, currently a freelance designer and sw dev that studied design & interactive media arts.

I might have written a master thesis called "I, rowboat: The Intricacies of AI & Poetry"

git pro tip 

@darius Yes! One of my faves, which means I've been bitten by an important nuance:

-S will not find diffs that only *modify* lines involving that variable, because it shows diffs that "change the number of occurrences of the specified string".

If you want to find those cases, you want `git log -G` instead, since it returns "differences whose patch text contains added/removed lines that match".

Heads up that -G takes a regex vs -S taking a substring (altho you can make -S regex with --pickaxe-regex). Fortunately they're right next to each other in `git help log`, which actually has a nice little example showing the difference between the two as well.
