The old stuff: This evening (27 of May) my Windows XP crashed) That means no more fractals from me until either I fixed the problem or have a new computer built. Lucky I have my mini lap, with Ubuntu, so I have fully access to the net Waiting for more fractals from me, I put a link to an old legendary TV program from the nineties,

The Village Bicycle Project
Pet projects. Groups, prompts, contests, news serials. We all have them, whether it be one, or two, or ten if we've got a premium membership and a largesse of time. We start them for various reasons: to make a change for the better, to provide an opportunity that wasn't there before, or simply to make our mark on this wide and diverse community. Of course, it wasn't always like this. When I was first kicking around deviantART, News was still in beta (heck, beta-testing was still in beta) and Groups were nothing more than a glint in the ninja milkman's eye. What few projects there were were run out of the forums, individual journals or dedicated accounts, while the vast majority of contests came directly from the Gallery Directors. But now, thanks to these new features, anyone can be a community volunteer. You might not get the hat or the tacit permission to fling poop or rend innocents with your dinosaur teeth, but you are a community volu

Alloweth me to become quite sappy, dear deviants and beloved watchers, for I have to admit something I've been feeling about y'all. I escaped dA to be on Tumblr and I'll tell you - it's fun, it's addicting, it's just awesometastic - but I could not help but keep on checking back here. And you know when they say stuff like "They are not actual friends," or "Once ya leave, they'll leave too and go on to check out other things like you were never there"?
I believed that, I accepted it, it sounds more than realistic and I've seen a grand many cases in which an artist leaves this site/any site and everyone kinda vanishes on 'em. Makes sense.
But dudes. I come back on after a whole month and eight days to throw very simple sketches and whatever from Tumblr at you guys and then the biggest surprise hit me that you all are still there. Although I've been gone for such a while and have be
The Evolution of CultureCulture EvolutionThe Evolution of Culture3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The evolution of culture flows through a number of different dynamics. I want to look into each one of these dynamics as they behave individually and interact with each other to generate large-scale cultural evolution. The primary activity of every human being is the formation of "meaning architectures". A meaning architecture is a system for predicting and controlling ones circumstance to achieve a satisfactory condition. The content of "satisfactory condition" and the strategies for prediction and control are highly variable and their movement is both one of the primary consequences of and drivers of cultural evolution. This is because our actions are all always determined by our "meaning architectures" (in combination with our capabilities and actual circumstances).
I. The bio/developmental individual
Every meaning architecture starts on our specific and general biological inheritance.

deviantART has given me the opportunity to perform two Community Volunteer positions here:
I am the Science Fiction and Space Art Community Volunteer.
I am also now the new 3 Dimensional Art Community Volunteer.
One of the duties of these positions is that I can feature artwork from these categories as Daily Deviations.
I browse through these categories daily in search of deviations to feature as Daily Deviations.
This feature is to help the artist and their work gain more exposure, and it's genre and/or medium gains more community awareness as well.
But I need your help.
Have you seen a work of art here on deviantART which you have found so impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large?
Do you know an artist of whom deserves much more exposure?

Art in Contemplation of Its Own BecomingDuchamp finds a discarded urinal. He alters it (by signing a name to it not even his own, but obviously “the artist’s”) and names it “The Fountain”. The most mundane, even off-putting, of objects is transformed by Duchamp into art. He submits it for exhibition and it is rejected. You might say the judges “pissed on” his idea. But the idea was born and persisted. Duchamp insisted the object was art because he as an artist presented it as such. “Conceptual Art” was born.Art in Contemplation of Its Own Becoming4 years ago in Personal More Like This

Rediscovering the Original Vision of DungeonCrawl!I have finally figured out what has been bugging me about DungeonCrawl group. I just sat and thought about it for a long while this morning. Then it hit me! In my soul the original intent for DungeonCrawl was for members and guests visiting the galleries to have a sense that they are descending into a dark labyrinthine dungeon environment. That is why deviations depicting "non-dungeon" environments were bugging me so bad and just didn't seem to fit. I finally have a more clear understanding of how the group theme should be focused.Rediscovering the Original Vision of DungeonCrawl!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So here it is; deviations should depict a dungeon environment. Character and monster art should be set in a dungeon or at least have as neutral a background as possible. Deviations with an outside exterior environment as a major feature (forests, cityscapes, landscapes) will be politely declined. Maps and dungeon tiles should depict dungeon interiors. I will move distracting deviations (pictures of dice, gaming groups in session, arts and crafts)

Gallery Makeover ProjectHello everyoneGallery Makeover Project2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Recently my team and I worked tirelessly on a project to help improve the gallery descriptions and thumbnail examples. While that project was indeed tedious with almost 4,000 categories in our system, it was also educational. What I learned from sorting through thousands and thousands of categories was that we have a lot of redundancy and a lot of categories that seem to have been created on a whim that are now simply homes for junk.
Over the years, the desire to appease niche communities and people who just wanted a specific area has led to some categories that go up to 4 levels deep, and it's really no wonder it's so confusing for people to figure out where to submit their artwork.
The conclusion I've come to is simplicity. While I'm not about to rip apart everything and make 6 stand alone categories, I do believe that there is a lot we can do to simplify the category tree. That includes some of the following:
1. Merging categories that ma
