Cory Doctorow: Where Characters Come From

Cory Doctorow: Where Characters Come From | Art - Craft - Design- Net | Scoop.it

What’s more, this reaction isn’t limited to readers. As a writer, I know that there’s a point in the writing when the engine of the story really seems to roar to life, and at that moment, the characters start feeling like real people. When you start working on a story, the characters are like finger-puppets, and putting words into their mouths is a bit embarrassing, like you’re sitting at your desk waggling your hands at one another and making them speak in funny, squeaky voices. But once those characters ‘‘catch,’’ they become people, and writing them feels more like you’re recounting something that happened than something you’re making up. This reality also extends to your autonomic nervous system, which will set your heart racing when your characters face danger, make you weepy at their tragedies, has you grinning foolishly at their victories.

"There’s a huge underserved population today who are consuming content on their phones and we’re giving them a crappy experience. We’re telling them, “Here’s how the web works for you: You have to pinch and zoom your way through sites that were designed for a much larger monitor, you’re going to get errors and the fonts are going to be really tiny.”

DLD The world of art and e-commerce is merging. | Art - Craft - Design- Net | Scoop.it

In the next five years one of the last industries to resist technological change will take a great leap in the digital sphere. The connective power of the Internet is evolving into a potential bearing device for artists, collectors, and their world in general.

Carter Cleveland is the founder and CEO of Art.sy, a free platform where users can discover, learn about, and collect art. Art.sy's goal is to make all the world's art accessible to anyone with an internet connection. Art.sy is powered by The Art Genome Project — an ongoing study of the characteristics that distinguish and connect works of art. Art.sy creates new pathways for discovering art through 800+ characteristics (called “genes”). Users can discover works through connections between art-historical movements, subject matter, and formal qualities, creating infinite serendipitous opportunities for discovery and learning.

It's true — kids love tablets and laptop games and apps. At Mashable we've seen a ton of tablets made just for kids, and more and more developers are creating apps just for kids. Some of these apps offer pure entertainment (the tablet babysitter) while others are educational. But what developers are missing out on, according to a company called OutThink Inc., is the opportunity to make educational games for children ages 8-13.

Your kids can't keep their hands off your tablet. And they are certainly entertaining while playing around with the devices. But as parents of children in the digital age, you probably wonder how to keep them safe from inappropriate content or from clicking on links that download viruses or spyware. You've also likely worried about the little tykes dropping your pricey device.

At International CES 2013, a new line of tablets for kids was introduced by tablet maker Ematic who partnered with Zoodles, a company that makes safe and intuitive platforms for kids to search the Internet.

“those who tell the stories, rule the world”

“Those who tell the stories rule the world.” — Plato.

 

When I was growing up, the masculine pronoun was used to refer to both men and women. This wasn’t supposed to be a big deal, but even as a little girl it bothered me because it made me feel invisible. Was I supposed to be invisible?

 

We learn to be invisible – to not speak up (and maybe offend people), to not blow our own horns (and be arrogant, obnoxious), to not ask for things (and be selfish), to not expect or demand our true worth (and be golddiggers).

 

We think our work should speak for itself and then wonder why we didn’t get that promotion.

 

Our work is also invisible. It’s background: all the stuff needed to keep the show running, so like any other natural resource (water, electricity, oil) it’s expected to come cheap, and only truly noticed when it’s suddenly no longer there.
