This week’s show is all about making the time you need to produce your creative works. Well… it’s mostly about that.Originally posted on monsterjavaguns.com.
Hi there! In this episode I talk at length about another little distraction that I’ve had over the last year… a little feature request site for Blender called Right-Click Select. But, that’s just the launch point. What this episode is really about is the best way to make feature requests in an open source software community (like the Blender community). I also make a few flubs, but hey… that’s pretty much on-brand for me now, right?Originally posted on monsterjavaguns.com.
This week’s episode is a barrel of questions and curiosity. I spin myself in a circle when I realize that I might not actually have a single medium that I can call “home”. Is that a problem or is that a requirement of being a creative person in the modern era? Or has it always been like this and folks just get known for one of the many kinds of things that they do?Originally posted on monsterjavaguns.com.
Short episode this week! And good thing, too, because this one is all about the stuff I’ve been up to recently.Originally posted on monsterjavaguns.com.
I told you I’d be making it a point to keep up with this show again. Well, here’s another episode. This one is a bit of an archive one. I actually recorded it a year and a half ago before the podcast went dormant. I just never got around to editing it and making it fit for sharing with you. Now I have, so here you go!Originally posted on monsterjavaguns.com.
Finally! At long last, after way, way too much time off, the podcast is back in action. Huzzah! This one is a little bit different from previous episodes. It’s a walking commute rather than a driving one. In this show, I talk about this year’s Blender Conference and all of the development going on with Blender there.Originally posted on monsterjavaguns.com.
Yay! Another Open Source Creative Podcast episode. In this one, I have a long conversation with myself about the nature of art and open source software as it pertains to selfishness. Is art inherently selfish? Is it not? Is that a bad thing? And likewise for Free Software.Originally posted on monsterjavaguns.com.
At long last, another Open Source Creative Podcast episode is here! Sorry for the long gap between episodes, folks… it’s been a crazy month. In any cast, this episode was recorded back in March and in it I talk about doing spec work (that is, speculative work) as a creative producer of things. Episode 15 really helped me nail down where I think my position is on this, so in a way, it’s an extension of that. It’s a bit of a contrast to the folks at nospec.com.Originally posted on monsterjavaguns.com.
I have a strange feeling that this episode is going to get me into a bit of trouble. Maybe. We’ll see. I get into details and backstory in the actual episode, but it all started with a question (or, better, replies to a question) regarding the resale of “used” digital content—specifically ebooks—in an episode of the Sell More Books Show, a podcast that’s pretty prevalent in the indie publishing scene. This episode is a bit of a rant launched from that premise.Originally posted on monsterjavaguns.com.
So this episode turned out to be a really long one. The bulk of it is a topic that comes courtesy of @3pointedit on Twitter (thanks for listening!). That is, the costs of choosing to use free and open source software tools to produce your creative works. We often hear (or read) the benefits, but those of us on this side of the fence are less vociferous when it comes to the costs and consequences of this choice of ours. I run through those costs… at least in as much as how I see it.Originally posted on monsterjavaguns.com.
