Technical advancements are not creative CONCEPTS

Technical advancements are not creative CONCEPTS

Ongoing advances in technology always open new possibilities for creatives and developers. It’s a way of life in digital media.

But do those exciting new advances make us better or worse at what we do? How do they challenge our inventiveness and our range of skills?

I hate to report, but the most exciting technical advancements in our medium today are a trap of a sort that critically limits how creative most of us are. And many are blind to it.

In fact you could be doing significantly better work than others in your field if you just change your mindset. And I want to help you do that.

The only way I know to explain this is to tell you how I came to this place.

How Humanity’s Deepest Longing And Beauty Are Hidden In Technology

Technology is advancing at an exponential rate. It’s overwhelming. And while there are countless technical domains that I cannot speak about with any expertise, I can talk about one.

My domain is communication media. And it, like all the others, is advancing wildly, exponentially, and in seemingly unpredictable ways with no end imaginable.

However, what has taken me years to realize is that counter to popular assumption, there is nothing unpredictable about the progression of technical advancement in communucation media, and that the progression does indeed have an actual end-state, a technical state afterwhich no further technical development will be sought.

What honestly surprised me most of all was that this end-state revealed something core, and beautiful about humanity.

What is Fascism?

This video examines fascism’s defining characteristics. Fascism rose most prominently in Italy and Germany between the two world wars. Benito Mussolini rose to power as a fascist in the 1920s. His movement violently seized power and defined the Italian nation in racial terms. This example was soon followed by Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party, which seized power in Germany in the 1930s. Utilizing extreme forms of nationalism, these leaders pushed their citizens to expel or murder those deemed an enemy of the state. The video compares these examples with the KKK in the United States.
