In recognition of the nascent slow culture movement on FC, here's a /zora collectible screenshot essay version of "What is Slowcore"? from "Slowcore and the Inner Genius." Thumbnail art: "North Star" by @trishd. https://zora.co/collect/zora:0x24453ebe8d78de52f6d253cf26fec18ab34b041f/2?referrer=danicaswanson.eth

To the anon folks behind several different ETH wallets that are slowly collecting my full back catalogue of essays on A Digital Incubation Space, one by one: Thank you for going "crate-digging" and minting. 💜 Those notifs from @paragraph ("Someone just collected your writing!") never fail to make me smile.

When I saw "slowcore.eth" was available, of course I snagged it for the Sanctuary. Great time to register. Gas was 3 gwei! Slow culture is getting more airtime on Farcaster. Now we have another little way to help propagate the meme. Working on a Zora collection of screenshot essays beginning with "What is Slowcore?"

I'm here for this vision 100%, though I'm not prepared to call it a prediction just yet. Still lots of work to do on many levels. But if FC pulls this off the way I hope it can, this will be a major, life-changing level unlock, especially for artists and writers. I think the FC ecosystem has the best chance at it.

First time I've ever wanted to mint a cast. What's the best way to do that? This needs to be immortalized on my Zora profile where I can see it daily and link it to the original essay. (Thank you once again, David!)

Every once in awhile, I lose sight of this wisdom. Then I re-learn it, in new and surprising ways.

Here's my first word collage - a collection of snippets on creative labor + value flow. Salvaged from 50+ unfinished essays in my @paragraph dashboard. Might turn this into a series, or might not. https://paragraph.xyz/@danicaswanson/on-art-content-creation-monetization-word-collage?referrer=danicaswanson.eth

My first "word collage" experiment is queued up for publishing on Paragraph. Before I turn in for the night, I'm casting mostly as a reminder to myself to just publish it when I wake up instead of overthinking it. https://warpcast.com/danicaswanson/0xc2dcf2c7

Writers and editors: here's another useful crypto style guide to check out. I appreciate all the love for the Starbased editorial style guide I built, too. I've said it before and I'll say it again: there's a great deal of unmet need for good copy editing in crypto media.

Friends of /slowcore-hq, have you seen any other recent "slow culture" developments in the Farcaster ecosystem? If so, we'd love to hear more about them, because @adrienne from /gmfarcaster says we started a trend. Lovely to see /slow-co-lab by @slowcrypto. Insta-followed.

A warm welcome to @supersigil (aka Alex Roth), a brilliant musician, thinker, and writer. He's the author of Web3 for Musicians, a fav of mine. His work richly deserves more attention. Let's help him get an active badge! https://jazzfuel.com/web3-for-musicians/ https://supersigil.bandcamp.com/track/brocken

When I was working with DeFi clients as a senior editor, I built this crypto editorial style guide. If you find it useful, feel free to borrow, adapt, and remix for your own publication. That's why we made it open source. https://starbased.notion.site/based-Editorial-Style-Guide-v1-3-fcf48ae0639f4b538578862387b2ba0d

"Each season, as a new batch of aspirants is welcomed into the esteemed ranks of Zorbish monastics, the Orders mark the occasion with a ritual processional through the crystalline Zorb."

Today I'm grateful to @edit - not only for creating beautiful art and contributing so much to the FC ecosystem, but for his kind heart and the positive-sum spirit of collaboration he brings to all of his work. NGL, I'm a little choked up today... in the best possible way. https://warpcast.com/edit/0x43587673

Attention fatigue (including decision fatigue) is a struggle for me too. A few things I do to reduce noise and cognitive load: - strictly limit inbound messaging (e.g., only mutual follows can DC me) - for comms: maximize text, minimize calls - filter possibilities by "expected energy required vs. energy returned"

I've written so many snippets of 150-500 words - mostly philosophical musings on creative labor, editorial work, + monetization. Don't want to put them in a cast thread. Most won't make it into an essay either. But I'd like to share them. I might just group them into text "collages" & start posting them on @paragraph.
