WHAT CAN WE LEARN ABOUT THE INTERNET FROM THE DISASTROUS DASHCON CONVENTION LAST WEEKEND?
Fandom works precisely because it has no leaders. People feed off one another’s creativity and energy, and you don’t need anyone’s permission to squirrel your own stories away on your Tumblr. They are yours and they are everyone’s. No one’s asking permission, no one’s organizing them beyond a few hashtags, and no one is “responsible” with keeping the fandom running smoothly. 
But to create an event, one that exists in the world, and requires transactions (both socially and monetarily), well, fandom doesn’t necessarily equip one to be able to pull that off. It feels like the DashCon organizers were faced with an event that they willed into being, and then required maintenance, follow-through, and organization. And it fell apart.


Ooo. Wee.

socialmediadesk:

Last week, we experimented with sending tweets from humans instead of robots on the NPR news twitter account.

When did we tweet?

We turned off the automated tweets during business hours and created the tweets ourselves. Monday through Wednesday we tweeted approximately every 8-10…

Power to People Power.

London, Ontario-based artist Dave Vancook turns previously unremarkable thrift store paintings into geektastic through the careful addition of characters and vehicles from Star Wars. A cheesy bullfighter becomes Boba Fett on an awesome holiday in Spain while Greedo heads over to the Scottish Highlands for his own minibreak. Meanwhile Darth Vader stops to smell the roses and an Imperial Stormtrooper sits down to café au lait outside a French bistro.

Visit Dave Vancook’s Facebook page to check out more of his up-cycled paintings. Prints of some of them are available via his Etsy shop.

First print I had to frame the same night I got it. UPSTREAM COLOR print by Kevin Tong a la the Mondo Gallery obliterates me. Just like the film.

A frame-full of feels. My favorites.
