Hello all!

Here's a link to my first foray into online teaching, a two day seminar on sculpting faces in zbrush. The first session on Saturday Oct.5th is free. I will be covering some of the foundational sculpting exercises I picked up over ten years ago while working under a traditional sculptor from the former Soviet republic of Georgia.

Without a doubt a huge portion of my save articles on pocket (readitlater) are missing.  Not in online nor offline mode, even articles that I saved as recently as last week are gone.  DO NOT TRUST THIS SERVICE!!!!!

Dire
TL;DR? Why not just go watch another five second video of a kitten with it’s head in a toilet roll, or a 140 character description of a meal …

I've run into about 5 billion people who want to be game developers (or more recently app developers) who think it's going to be just a normal creative exercise. This must be why setting up an IDE is so frustrating, it weeds out all the folks who are really really just not cut out for game development.

I don't mean to sound elitist or anything either - I am far from an IT expert - because tenacity counts for a lot. It's generally an all-day project for me to set up an IDE and get all the dependencies working. Hell, it took a day for me to set up git on my laptop.

The problem is that most people view computers as convenience machines. I want to know what actor played the lead in some movie? IMDB tells me in a few seconds. I want to find a good vietnamese restaurant? What used to require intense networking and experimentation can usually be ground down into a few searches in google maps. Oh...you want to make a game? There are a few tools that will help, namely Twine, Unity, Game Maker, Construct, and others, but in the long run, you're going to have to learn the basics of programming, which is far beyond normal computer usage for most of the world. It is NOT convenient by any stretch. After diving into game development you start thinking things like Autocomplete in IDEs are convenient. Tools to help you fill out XML manifests are convenient. Nice debugging and profiling tools are convenient.

TOTALLY AMAZING POST

In a BBC interview (30th Aug 2013) the British science historian James Burke talked about how personal nano-factories will make everything free, things will cost nothing or virtually nothing, governments will cease to exist. Using air, water, dirt, and a little bit of acetylene gas people will make anything. James Burke said: "Something is going to happen in about forty years times, if my guess is right, if everybody else's guess is right, that is going to change things probably more, almost than since we left the caves." https://audioboo.fm/boos/1574606-james-burke-predicted-the-future-in-1973-now-he-does-it-again

Some of his key points are:

■ People will become entirely autonomous.

■ Technology will destroy the present socio-economic system.

■ There will be no need for institutions, nations, or governments.

■ The next twenty years (2013-2033) will move so fast and in so many directions we will struggle to keep up with technological acceleration.

■ Every aspect of our life for the past 150,000 talkative years has been dictated by scarcity. Nanofactories will bring something we are unprepared for.

I think James Burke is slightly too late with his "forty years" (2053) prediction. I think thirty two years (2045) will be ample time.

The whole interview is worth listening to but the good bit starts at around the eight minutes point.

It is good to hear a highly respected science historian expressing these views. Previously these views, except for Peter Diamandis in his book Abundance, have been largely fringe ideas, thus people have been very dismissive of the concepts. Perhaps people will now find it easily to accept the inevitability of the seemingly impossible, the end of governments, the age of everything being free.

Here are a few Singularity-themed links regarding Post-Scarcity:

Updated: I could hardly write this post because I was so excited by the interview, it is amazing to hear such radical futuristic ideas on a mainstream platform like the BBC, I think I have eliminated all the typos now :)- ENJOY!
