The Here And Now
morgandawn
Update: April 15, 2013: The bulk of the fanzine information has been moved to Fanlore, the fan run wiki. You can access Fanlore's home page here.
_____________________________________
If you're looking for a list of fanzines by fandom, this is what I have so far:

Place of Honor:  Starsky & Hutch. Pepper has compiled the most amazing and complete fanzine listing. Mahvelous. Go here

1. Alphabetical listing
A-Team - list here (last updated in 1997) and here
Beauty & the Beast here and here
Buffy and Angel
Blake's 7  - Judith has an extensive list here
Dr Who - partial lists available here and here and here
Due South -Ray Vecchio Fanzines and  Ray Kowalski Fanzines
Inspector Morse here
The Magnificent 7 here
The Man From U.N.C.L.E - slash fanzines here, gen and slash fanzines here
The Professionals -The Hatstand  and Palely Loitering (with their own LJ here)
Quantum Leap - old list, needs updating
Rat Patrol - Excel spreadsheet here
Real Ghostbusters - here (defunct, last updated 2002). A more current list is here
Robin of Sherwood here
Seaquest here and here
The Sentinel - Loft Library -Slash Zines and Gen Zines
Smallville here
Shadow Chasers here (old archive)
Sherlock Holmes here
Stargate SG1 - old list here
Starsky & Hutch - Pepper's Amazing List With Every Possible Combination Except Pepperoni
Star Trek   - K/S Slash Zines and Star Trek Zinedex (gen/het/slash). An index of stories published in fanzines by title and author can be downloaded from the KirkSpockCentral mailing list (membership required).
Star Wars - Star Wars Collector's Bible (older list archived here)
Supernatural - here
Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea here
Xena/Hercules - partial list here

2. Multi-Fandom Lists

Ming's Fanzine Archives (Star Trek, Star Wars & other Fandoms - click on the pdfs for the list)
Fandom Wikis - FanLore and Fan History

3. What To Do With That Aging Fanzine Collection?  If you don't  want to sell your fanzines on eBay or at a convention, the  Fan Culture Preservation Project  will help fans find homes for their fanzine collections - either at the University of Iowa or  via fellow fans.  More here and  here.

What I like about the Fan Culture Project is that the University will pay for shipping and loading of the zines.  I have several friends whose health has declined, don't want to sell their collection, but want to find their fanzines a good home.

Other places to buy/sell your fanzines: the Zinelist Announcements List, its sister discussion mailing list  Zinelist or the SlashSwap mailing list. You can offer your fanzines on LJ at Fandom Swap.     Jim and Melody Rondeau will also agent your fanzines online and at conventions for a small commission. As a last resort head over to eBay but beware you may be charged 2-3x more than you would buying from fannish sources.

For new zines/in print zines only:  The Zine listing communities - one here on Dreamwidth and the mirror here on LJ. Melody Clark has started MediaFen, a fanzine listing blog. The RSS feed for LJ users is here. The direct blog link is here.

If you're trying to track down a fanzine producer whose website has moved or gone away, try using the Wayback Machine.  Ex:  The Zine Zone (last updated in 2003) is archived here.

4. Any other lists? Drop a note. And feel free to link here, as I'll update it.

Looking for Fanzine lists:
Star Trek - gen/het
Buffy/Angel - some zines listed on Fanlore
Highlander - some zines listed on Fanlore
Farscape
Firefly
Supernatural
X-Files - some zines listed on Fanlore

Fiction with adult ratings or adult subject matter will be labeled as adult.  My writing involves adult themes that focus on  controversial subject matters and often contains both violence and/or sex, including character deaths and non-consensual acts.  Please read responsibly.

Most of my fan fiction was written years ago and has been previously published in fanzines. The posting date in this journal or any other site does not represent the actual publication date.

This is an journal for and by adults dealing with sexual and political as well as personal issues. If you are under the age of 18, please get the appropriate consent before proceeding.

Fan:
I am a multi-media fan, love sci-fi and fantasy and have been involved in reading and writing fan fiction for the past 12 years. I am in my 40s (to give you a rough age and experience range). My fan fiction can be found here. Fiction with adult ratings or adult subject matter will be labeled and cut-tagged. Please read responsibly. My fan vids can be found in streaming format here

Person:
My other interest is a rare genetic condition called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) that I have been diagnosed with.   I also ask that you take time to read this before posting or commenting about EDS.  Please note that comments on typos, grammar and formatting will be deleted. LJ formatting problems may or may not be able to be fixed - do not feel offended if I am unable to respond to your request. Hopefully after reading about EDS, you will understand why it is difficult to type and participate online.

WARNING: If you a
re looking for more info about EDS please header over to the volunteer EDS Alert blog here. This is a private journal and EDS is not the main topic of discussion. Please do not give out the link to my private journal (unless you are interested in fannish things, vidding or disussions about slash and sexuality). If you're only interested in EDS, I tag my EDS posts here.

LJ Info:
I really don't have a friending policy. In fact I am somewhat haphazard about it. If you are adding me to your journal reading list and want to be added back, it does help to drop me a note who you are and what are your interests. I have extensive filters and try to keep up with people that way. My blog contains a wide range of topics: personal, political, financial, legal. fannish, and medical. I can be silly and serious. cranky and goofy -often in the same post. I have a very twisted sense of humor - if you think something is funny, more likely than not I am intending it to be funny. And sometimes I am intending it to be so even when you don't think it is funny. My humor requires a great deal of ....humour. And last if you are reading this journal or if you've asked to be added to my friends list to read locked posts - you are agreeing to this. Read it. And then if you want to be added to my friends list, drop me a comment with some info on who you are, what topics you are interested in and that you've read and agreed to the things I need in order for me to feel comfortable inviting you into the more private areas of my 'home.' However, if I do not add you to my reading list, please do not take it personally. I also use tracking notifications in lieu of 'friending' to follow specific posts on other people's journals.

In the year 2525
If man is still alive
If woman can survive
They may find.....

Are we there yet? And where are the flying cars?

If your fanvid has been blocked on YouTube and Vimeo, you can embed it into your WordPress site (get one for free) if the free Wordpress site allows you to install custom/3rd party plugins. From there you can then stream the vid stored on Box.com, Google Drive or Dropbox using a Wordpress Media Plugin.

Each of these storage sites has bandwidth limits (see discussion about Dropbox, Box.com and Google Drive) so you would use this only for vids that have been blocked on YouTube.

The name of the plugin is WP Cloud Plugins

You can compare the various plugins for Box.com, Google drive and Dropbox here

posted: Attack the Block Helped Set the Course for the Last Decade of SciFi Films

 

"In a world in which any person of color’s interaction with the authorities, no matter how minor or seemingly routine, has the potential to end in violence or death—or else in exposure to a dehumanizing system of law enforcement that feeds off of racial and economic inequalities (a less immediate but still destructive outcome)—we’re forced to question the standard ‘crime and punishment’ narrative the minute the alien’s attack disrupts the arrest and forces us (and Sam) to realize that there is more to the story. And more to Moses.

These interactions capture Attack the Block’s approach to moral quandaries. Science fiction has always used outrageous and supernatural situations to examine ethical assumptions, but rarely have films in the genre so directly addressed systemic racism and inequality. Before the invasion, Sam—a recent nursing school grad living in the block as she begins her career—saw little in common between herself and Moses, his friends, or even genial weed dealers Ron (Nick Frost) and Brewis (Luke Treadway)."

archiveofourown posted: Archive of Our Own 

Soon we'll be replacing our current method for generating work downloads with the Calibre command line interface. Our current patchwork system of third-party tools and custom code comes with a number of bugs and limitations, and moving to a well-maintained and documented application like Calibre will enable us to better maintain and even enhance the download feature going forward.

Because this is an entirely new system, there will be some differences between old and new files. We've provided an overview of these changes and some previews below, but we're still testing these changes, so there may be some minor differences between the previews and the final versions. Additionally, exactly how a file looks and behaves may vary depending on your device, software version, and settings.

[personal profile] impertinence posted: An Analysis of AO3's Code (For Tech And Laypeople)

 

The Problems

As I see it, AO3 as a high-traffic Rails application has several issues preventing it from stability and scalability. Those problems are nearly all related to a lack of best practice in design or implementation. I've laid some out here:

- Poor data design, leading to difficult-to-understand data structures that can cause considerable stress on the database
- Opaque/badly maintained GitHub documentation and maintenance, leading to an inability for non-AO3 developers to contribute to the project
- Poor implementation of Agile development methodology, leading to much-needed features becoming incredibly difficult to implement
- Inefficient code design and planning, particularly in the area of avoiding algorithmic complexity
- Inconsistent and costly decision-making processes regarding the purchase and maintenance of hardware for the archive

I will address these one by one. In addressing them, I sometimes suggest solutions. I don't want to imply that my suggested solutions would work perfectly as suggested, in a golden implementation. I consider them jumping-off points for exploration of greater stability and efficiency.

A Youtuber called ObbyRaidz, who makes videos about Minecraft, has found himself having received two copyright "strikes" on Youtube from a blackmailer calling themselves VengefulFlame, who has demanded "$150 PayPal or $75 btc (Bitcoin)" or equivalent "goods/services" to have the strikes removed. If ObbyRaidz doesn't comply, VengefulFlame could send one more complaint to Youtube and have ObbyRaidz's account -- and all the videos he's created -- permanently deleted.

There are over 4 million fanworks listed on AO3. But fanvids have gained little traction....and very little attention or support from AO3. Vids (like fan art) are lost in the fanworks crowd, stuck on the back shelf, and not easily filtered or located. Fans must upload their vids to increasingly hostile streaming sites and run a constant risk of DMCA strikes, takedown notices and channel deletions. In many ways, fanvids are still stuck in the same nomadic environment that fanfiction inhabited before AO3 was founded in 2009.
 
A few vidders are using AO3 to create a "home base" for their streaming vids. By embedding a fanvid on your AO3 page, you can keep all your comments and kudos even if your vid is yanked from Youtube or Vimeo or your account is wholesale deleted. You can hand out a single link to people (a link to the AO3 vid "home page") and you will only need to update the embedded vid if and when as needed. Currently here are some of the video hosting sites that are "whitelisted" for embedding on AO3
 
YouTube
Vimeo

So...... as of Feb 2019, how many vids are on AO3?
               8,760 (plus or minus).* 

How many vidders have uploaded their fanvids?
              1514 (plus or minus)*
 
There are over 4 million fanworks on AO3.

Fanvids consist is .2% (.002).
 

What can we do to improve AO3 to make it a better home for vidders and their fanvids?

1. Let your favorite vidders know about AO3 and that they can create a stable home base for their vids (we have a tool...let's use it)
2. If you are a vidder, create a page for each of your vids (those who do not participate are often never counted)
 
3. If a streaming site that you use (or would like to use) is not supported on AO3, contact AO3 and put in a request (as more fans move to federated fandom sites running PeerTube and Hubzilla, will AO3 be able to speed up site whitelisting?  The Critical Commons website is no longer  functionally whitelisted because they have not turned on HTTPS. Is anyone from OTW working with them? Looking for workarounds?)
 
4. Push AO3 to offer more support for locating and showcasing vids on AO3. (ex: Make the Video tag canonical so we can set up feeds. Are there other improvements we can ask for?)
 
5. Push the OTW to revitalize the Vidding committee (This will require that vidders and/or fans of fanvids volunteer)

6. Other ideas?



*Thanks to Garfield for doing the hard work of locating and categorizing the fanvids currently on AO3 and where they are stored. He points out that some vid pages on AO3 may have vids embedded or hosted in multiple locations.

EDITED TO ADD AO3 SUGGESTIONS FROM BELOW

*Make the Video tag canonical so we can set up RSS feeds/notifications of new fanvids

*AO3 should add Video Element Embed Support: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTML/Element/video

and related, Track Element Embed Support: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTML/Element/track

and the podfics out there could probably also use the Audio Embed Support: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTML/Element/audio  

Vidders and podficcers would be able to use different hosting providers, would be able to offer more accessibility options like subtitles, and would reduce the need for  site by site AO3 whitelisting.

 If not, how to set one up to catch all vids? We use a multitude of tags. Is there a global tag for all fanvids that will capture  them all?

Is there a way to track just fanvids from one fandom?  Is this something we can  already do for fanfiction?

EDITED
[personal profile] absolutedestiny has set up an RSS feed for the "Fanvid" tag*  and if you are on DW you can subscribe at https://ao3-vids-feed.dreamwidth.org/

*The service updates every 24 hours, puts in ads and can only base the feed on what's on a single page, which is limited by the number of items in the ao3 pagination.  [A Dreamwidth post with comment count unavailable comments | Post or read on Dreamwidth| How to use OpenID]

[personal profile] elf posted: Publishing in 2019: Business Trends

 

Kristine Kathryn Rusch has a blog with a whole lot of business tips for writers, and her end-of-year wrap-up and plan-for-next-year post has expanded to a miniseries of 6 posts (so far) about major changes in the publishing universe, and what that means for pro and would-be-pro authors. 

The short version: KEEP YOUR DAMN COPYRIGHTS. Books may not be "dying," but they're definitely not growing, and other related industries are. Traditional publishers don't know what's going to be big so they've decided they need to grab all the rights so they can be ready to exploit them, and they don't care what happens to authors who can't make a living while they're figuring it out.

I Read the Gayest Star Trek Novel:

We have loads more into on Fanlore:   https://fanlore.org/wiki/Killing_Time_(Star_Trek_tie-in_novel)

“There’s conflicting accounts of the official reaction of Pocket Books; some say they tried to recall all the copies of the first edition, some say they simply destroyed what had yet to ship. What is true is that later additions include over fifty significant changes to the novel. The more gay parts are removed, all physical affection between Kirk and Spock, even platonic, is removed. But the first edition can still be found, and a book that first retailed for $3.50 is being sold for $50 to $80 on eBay.

It’s a fascinating little slice of a history that underpins fandom as we know it today. Many fans around today could tell you the history of slash stories in the early 2000s, how some archives wouldn’t allow LGBT stories at all, how some would rate them NC-17–and how every fanfiction writer was terrified of lawyers coming after them for dabbling in copyrighted worlds. But before the internet, before fandom became a dominant market force, the interaction between fandom and the establishment was much more fluid. And while LGBT content was ultimately taboo, it was also popular with those who wanted to carry the torch, and the Star Trek fandom was in many ways a more tolerant place than the rest of the world; after all, homosexuality was medically classified as a mental disorder right up until 1987, a full two years after this book came out.

While no one intended for this incredibly gay Star Trek book to make it to stores, the fact remained that it did, and it exists as evidence of this complex time in fandom history, with benefits we’ve lost over time and restrictions we couldn’t imagine in this relatively taboo-free era of fanfiction. If you can manage to find a copy of the first edition, it’s worth a read.”

What happens if whoever runs that instance flounces? Does the picture go bye? If not, where does it go, and who pays for hosting?

We're actually discussing this in the distributed fandom discord (link in post_tumblr_fandom). We're kicking the tired on the idea of a Mothership organization, which exists to back up people's data (opt-in) and provide a second home in case of flouncing/data loss. The mothership wouldn't be somewhere people actively hang out - it would just leverage those info exchange protocols (ActivityPub and Zot) to enable people to back up their data while hanging out on smaller fan-run servers. We'd also work with potential server admins to help them set up their own sites and back up their files to hedge against data loss.

 There are many other answers to questions in this  thread

Requests For Help

I’m curious to experiment with the brightening/coloring I’ve seen in YouTube vids. Does anyone know of a tutorial? I’m using Sony Movie Studio Platinum 13, but guides from other software should still be helpful enough.

It was forty-four years ago today
Vidders taught themselves to play
They've been going in and out of style
But they're guaranteed to raise a smile
So may I introduce to you .....
The act you've known for all these years?
Media Cannibals Lonely Hearts Club Band

*Some of these vids have appeared online before as downloads. This is not the entire collection of fanvids but it does include some from the VCR-era of vidding.

[personal profile] rhodanum posted: of fandoms and complete shitshows

"....one of the most baffling and actively enraging developments in recent times has been the sharp rise of content-policing from within rather than something caused by the intervention of an fundamentalist Christian group whose caterwauling kicked off Strikethrough)...

In the case of antis, they specifically congregate in their own tags and have formed their own social community, where it's a shunning offense to express even a modicum of agreement with any ideas that run counter to anti thought. Hell, I've seen people being made-an-example-of purely because they remained friends with individuals who did not subscribe to anti views. The goal is to isolate the (usually young and inexperienced) individuals and make them socially and emotionally dependent on the anti community, to the point where they don't dare question anything, for fear of ostracism or outright targeted harassment. This combines nastily with the wider Tumblr social environment's habit of locking people in a death-spiral of more and more extreme versions of initially sensible ideas.....

Current fandom consensus is that you're supposed to tag and warn the shit out of your content, if it contains anything that could be objectionable, so people who don't want to deal with that can just avoid it or vamoose it entirely via blacklisting. How does that square with antis howling even louder than before against 'bad content?' Simple. They don't want tools to curate their own fandom experience -- you could spoon-feed them everything and they'd still scream. Their goal is the total elimination of whatever content they've fixated on (age-gap ships, incest ships, content with sexual violence, BDSM content, etc) because even the mere knowledge that this content exists (and is being actively and freely enjoyed by 'gross people') is enough to put them into a bona-fide emotional meltdown.....

.. In Tumblr fannish spaces, largely dominated by women and other marginalized groups, such as LGBTQ+ people? We bought into their shit for a while, because we were earnestly trying not to do harm to others and were taught obsessively that if someone said we were harming them, we needed to listen and take their criticism on-board. That's how a ton of anti nonsense is, nowadays, being used as a front for ship-wars -- 'my ship is progressive and not-straight and interracial and healthy and supportive, your ship is [insert the opposite here... even when it doesn't correspond as a description for the ship!]' This is also why there's a veritable rat-race going on to 'problematize' even the most anodyne ship and fictional content, because that's the most surefire way to use it as a bludgeon against someone else.
The most chilling aspect of this whole thing is that this fuckery has bled out of fandom and affected people's real lives. And the reason for this is precisely the unholy mix of Extreme Tumblr SJ and fandom, one that puts people in a filter-bubble which teaches them that they are RIGHTEOUS in their goals and their methods and they mustn't question themselves or the legitimacy of their targets. The Righteous never question, the Righteous are always correct and if they're told someone is a Suppressive Person* Bad Person, then they must cut all ties with them, publicly denounce them and, if they continue in their Badness, punish them appropriately."

a comment to fairestca's post: On Fandom and the "culture of selling"

But my understanding has always been that a main reason for not monetizing fandom wasn't that the money was dirty, but that keeping fandom noncommercial was the main way to keep the owners of the intellectual property off our backs. If I sell my Narnia novel Carpetbaggers, even by putting up a Patreon link, I'm entering into competition with the Lewis estate, and giving them justification for shutting me down.

To my mind, the fear of the copyright-holders has always been the primary reason to keep fannish creativity quiet and non-commercial. Even if, as the OTW legal team asserts, transformative fandom is protected as fair use, it's also functionally protected because it's not considered a threat by the corporations. Once money enters the equation, they are much less likely to look the other way.

(I've always wondered about fan art in that way, particularly the amazing one-off works that get sold at cons, but any single Kirk/Spock painting doesn't constitute a threat to the franchise's intellectual property the way that that Axanor movie would have.)

I have a suspicion that the community has made a virtue of necessity, and took the non-commercial requirement and converted it into the gift economy. So that element is considered by many old-school fans to be a special part of the fannish world: we give gifts to one another, and no money changes hands in exchange for our creativity. It's nicer to say, "we give gifts" than "we're afraid of Paramount", after all.

"And, not unrelated, I also see a lot of Fake Woke purity policing popping up in the same breath. "You can't ship X because its Problematic" and "They aren't blood related but they're close to each other so its incest" and now "Multishipping is prompting infidelity!"  


Fandom has always had its fair share of Good White Christian Moms showing up to tell you whats Good and whats Bad. nearly fourteen years ago I got my first "Harry Potter is the Devils child and repent for writing HP fic or you're going to hell!" message on ff.net  

But I think its something to consider that its often the places where people 25, 35, 55+ are being pushed out that we're finding a lot of the tumblr woke bad hot takes. People without the life experience are coming together and deciding not to learn from fandom history,

Deciding not to look for the lexicon of language that has been there for years to describe and explain why they dont link a thing, and not to learn the commonly accepted practice of what to do when you find fanworks you dont enjoy  Instead of saying "I dont ship X bc its my notp" or abiding by "dont like, dont read." Spaces where that long fannish culture arent considered appear to become echo chambers where "we dont like X so now we need to come up with a justification for why" is the new normal,

And anyone who doesnt think the same way is Problematique™. And that Problematique™ content should disappear!!! Fiction impacts reality!!! If your content could hurt me it shouldnt exist!!!

Its easy to burn that torch when you've never been impacted by the loss of geocities, or by strikethrough, or heard stories from people who watched entire fanspaces burn overnight. Policing and witchhunting content bc it personally doesnt agree w you is always a factor of-

These purges. Think about tumblr, and how accurate their dragnet has been while trying to make a "safe" sfw space ......[snip]

All this to say, stop, consider what you're saying and why. If you have Strong Feelings about multishipping, maybe you're just a monoshipper. That doesnt make people who arent Bad or Wrong, and it doesnt mean you're lacking or Better either. You just have a preference, one that 

Is perfectly okay for other people not to share.  

Tl;dr: learn from the people who were in fannish spaces b4 you. Learn that its okay to just like or dislike things, & that your preferences dont have to be law or supported by "evidence". Curate your experience.
_____________________________________________________
 
 In one of the replies:

The root-cause of all this nonsense is that a good swath of the younger generation doesn't seem capable of seeing fandom for what it's always been -- an escapist place for *personal pleasure.* Instead, they see it as an *activist space & safe-space* rolled into one.

[personal profile] settiai posted: January Talking Meme: Day #26

 

I've seen fandom go from people having to put disclaimers ("not mine! don't sue!") to people having no idea where something like that comes from. I've seen FF.net go from being the pinnacle to the Pit of Voles. I've seen the rise of the AO3.

I've seen fanvids go from being a very niche part of fandom that took a huge amount of investment (and multiple VCRs) to becoming something anyone can easily try to do if they want. I mean, I got into the vidding part of fandom when online vid downloads were just starting to become a possibility to... well, the age of YouTube.

Fandom changed. And, well, it hasn't at the same time. It's very cyclical, and the longer I'm involved with it? The more I see that.

There have always been people who've said "don't write this!" or "you can't draw that!" There have always been people who've used things like "think of the children!" or "don't you have morals?" as a way to pretend they have the high ground. Yes, the current version of fandom is better on some things. (I very much remember when it had to be rated PG-13 or R if it had a m/m relationship, even if it was nothing but G-rated fluff. Or when so many fics featuring f/f or m/m or even graphic f/m was only posted under lock.) But it's backslid on others.

Fandom is fandom. It's always changing, and it will never change. That's part of why it means so much to me.

 From tumblr

concerningwolves:

I feel like fandom generations are both very specific and easily conflated. Like,, you either live through so many they blur together into one hellish mess or you join in on one generation and remain blissfully unaware of the previous ones

If you're within the sound of this post, and you're on a federated instance--hubzilla, mastedon, peertube, etc--and we're not already mutuals, can you comment to me? I'm really enjoying hubzilla and all the more so since I friended a bunch of fandom.ink people and some other fannish people on mastedon. FWIW, I'm over at cesperanza@fandom.stopthatimp.net.

[personal profile] cesperanza posted: Snowflake day whatever
</user>

The last time we were disrupted we were worried about the fanworks - and we still are for art and video. But the network can communally host the art and video, and also the network can be collected and preserved via nomaic identity - I wouldn't mind losing "tumblr" as an interface but what I do mind losing is the NUMBER OF FOLLOWERS I've collected on tumblr, and all the PEOPLE I've followed. If we go to a nomadic system - one where you keep your identity and YOUR FOLLOWERS even as you MOVE--we won't have to do this scramble to recollect and refriend each other again.

ActivityPub allows you to choose the social media/blogging style of your choice--more DW/Tumblry with threaded comments at Hubzilla, more Twitter/shortformy at Mastedon, more YouTubey at PeerTube - but they ALL INTEROPERATE. So its as if from one feed I can friend you if you're at Pillowfort, DW, Tumblr, Twitter, or YouTube and whatever you post there will show up on my dash, and if I get into a fight where I'm housed or other disaster I can just collect my identity and followers and go somewhere else and STILL HAVE ALL OF YOU ON MY DASH when I get there. This is my understanding of what Federation/ActivityPub offers and why I'm behind it; beyond that, I'm interested in peer to peer hosting solutions that interoperate with that for art and video, so we can help our friends - the artists and vidders--make and share the work that we love!

Anyway people are working to fit this existing tech for fandom and to write clearer documentations and instructions and such, so stay tuned; hit_the_books has been doing Hubzilla/Federation updates at post_tumblr_fandom but I'll also always signal boost significant developments here....,

Excerpt: "Do I worry about the increased monetization of personal spaces on the internet? Absolutely. But not for those reasons. 

I worry because I'm a Giant-Ass Socialist, and personal crowdfunding is chancy and unreliable and a sign of our massive failure as a society to value artists and creators and to protect and care for vulnerable populations.

The Patreons aren't the problem. They're just a symptom of the fucking hellhole dystopia we all now live in.

If you look at the proliferation of gofundmes and patreons and think, "ugh, why do people keep asking me for money?" and not "how can we burn late capitalism to the ground and salt the ashes?" then I think you're not seeing the big picture."

posted: How Are Fandoms Doing After Tumblr’s Adult Content Ban?

 ........Tumblr isn’t totally dead, of course. Many people have remained, but from my perspective, there’s been a noticeable slowdown in activity. I went from daily interaction to checking the site maybe once a week. When I do so, a great majority of the content on my dash seems to be meme-based and posts with hundreds of thousands of notes rather than directly fandom-centric content. It feels as though there’s a dearth of energy and drive. Anecdotes from friends and others’ experiences seem to bear this out. A Tumblr user told The Mary Sue:

many people I follow who posted regularly came back/didn’t leave after Dec 17 but like everything on my dash feels like it’s the same 25 people now, and it’s just less busy. there are way more stretches now where I can sit refreshing the top of the dash in the middle of what should be active times and get nearly no fresh posts.

We’ve also heard that some users have seen an uptick in bots following them, which, conceivably, was a problem the content ban should have addressed. And Tumblr’s tools for detecting “adult” content continue to misfire and identify perfectly innocent images; one that I saw get flagged in my own reblogs was a photo of a movie star snuggling with a puppy. Dangerous stuff there.

Fandoms comprise a sprawling ecosystem all over the world, so I know that my own perspective and opinions from others queried do not speak for what you may have witnessed. I’m curious about how people are feeling in their own corners of fandom.

While working on the anthology Mother of Invention, our lives and attention spans were full of knitted robots, intelligent spaceships, living computer programs and living creatures built out of sugar. Although our focus was largely on the creators of artificial intelligences and robots, several of our authors rose to the challenge of writing in the point of view of the AI itself. It’s a special challenge for writers, but so rewarding when done well.

Both of us love this theme as readers too, so here we’re sharing some of our favourites.
