I remember DeviantArt.com

My Photoshop skills ain’t what they used to be.

I have a bunch of stuff sitting around in my old DeviantArt account that I can use as filler posts here when I don’t feel like writing or analyzing the news.

There was a bunch of drama at DA in 2005-2006 when they went for-profit, involuntarily terminated one of the founders, and then readjusted their terms of use to have a “non-exclusive, royalty-free license to reproduce, distribute, re-format, store, prepare derivative works based on, and publicly display and perform Your Content.” They also fired and banned a bunch of gallery directors who protested.

DA also had a close-knit, talented writing community back in the day. I actually learned a lot about the technical aspects of poetry from that site. But everyone left when they realized how many shitty writers only interested +fav circle jerks were on the site.

Flickr and other sites that don’t rape your artist rights kinda makes them obsolete.
