AS HUMANS FAIL TO DESIGN BETTER TECHNOLOGIES
TECHNOLOGY WILL FAIL HUMANS
Consider: More and more human progress has slowed to a crawl because the current tools we are using - computers, keyboards, mice, software etc., - are so antiquated and inefficient that they are just not good enough to keep pace with what needs to be done. The sooner we scrap keyboards, mice and even dedicated monitors and start using more natural, efficient and intelligent human interfaces
the sooner we can start getting things done again. People should design and demand useful sustainable
technologies, not contrived gadgets made by large corporations, software coders and engineers only for profit.
Here's just one practical problem; If I am to turn my huge and growing file of ideas into deviations anytime soon and have more time to look at your amazing deviations and journals, I will have to stop thanking everyone individually for their faves and kindnesses. It just takes too long with the tools I am using.
It's not what I want to do - I want better tools to assist me to do a better job, but until new technologies allow, I must fail like so many before me - to keep up with all the good folk who have made my time at DA such a pleasure.
Meantime, I wish you a collective 'thank you' for all your support and encouragement. I promise to use my time well, to update existing deviations using your suggestions and to unveil more new works that will be coming to a monitor near you!
Oh! And if you have a clever system on DA that allows you to answer all you faves, comments and notes individually, give points and Llamas, read journals, check all your watched deviants and you still have time to make the tea, then I want to hear from you!

FYI If you get a Llama from me, this is what it means;
1. I think your work is very cool and I wish I could afford to buy it
2. Your work shows great promise and I want to see more of it
3. Your work is so good - it is an inspiration to me
4. You were kind enough to lend me a point or two
- - - - - - - DA WISH #1
If DA created a 'Tick Box Submission Denial Note' system, it would save millions of minutes. IDEA: Insist all admins complete a simple, DA supplied 'post-it' type note at the time any submission is denied. The note would have Tick Box elements like "Wrong Folder" "Needs cropping", "Out of Focus" or such like. Without any delay, submitters would not have to ask why it was denied, and admins would not have to spend precious time explaining the same reasons over and over again. It would save us all millions of minutes. DA WISH #2
At the time you receive a fave from someone, DA shows (via a symbol, perhaps?) you have already given them a Llama.
What do you think? Do you have a DA wish?FEATURED ARTIST
