@cgiffard It took Leslie Jones' quitting Twitter and the specter of celebrities possibly abandoning the platform because of its abuse problem (especially given that Snapchat seems better suited to their brand management) for Twitter to get scared. Cynical.
@jws It took me a while to find the context. I'm unconvinced by Apple's/Lattner's argument, but also unconvinced by the specific counterpoints that most developers seem to be raising. »shrug« The proof will be in the shipping code, I guess.
@jws Yes to all of this! For as popular as "blogging" is, we don't seem, as a technical and literary culture, to have reexamined the fundamentals of the act of writing and publishing in our now-present digital context. Much food for thought!
@jws Since, at that stage, I haven't made detailed strokes that are key to the final image, I have less hesitation about erasing and reworking large swaths of the image. I'm excited to find time to do more.
@jws Thanks! Yes, full-size iPad Pro. I found that watching "speedpaints" of other artists began to give me insights into ways to better work with volumes and solve problems with gesture and silhouette before I invest too much energy in rendering.
