Now that channels are decentralizing, we plan to phase out the broadcast-only model. We enacted it only as a temporary spam prevention measure. (It worked well!) We'll be experimenting with formats for extended discussion of slowcore philosophy, prayer, etc. What topics have interested you most on our channel so far?

Every week I low-key collab with @edit by selecting 1-2 of his Zorbitecture pre-mints, writing a brief story about what I see in them, and tipping $ENJOY. Glad to see that this one appears in the /zora channel main feed today. (The "recent" tab is... not looking too good). Excited to see curated channels emerging!

For the past few weeks I've had an influx of new collectors steadily minting my back catalogue of Paragraph posts (7-8 per day). All anon wallets - no profiles, no ENS, no emails. Are other Paragraph writers seeing similar patterns? Nice to watch my balance go up, for sure, but not sure what to make of the pattern.

With the "3x gigamultiplier" this is the largest $ENJOY tipping allowance I've had yet. Thanks @interface. Going to be an enjoyable week of distributing this to brilliant writers and artists on /zora.

TIL that Farcaster has "copycat bots" who just copy a previous reply verbatim. First time I've seen them copy one of my casts. Why? I don't get it. Some kind of farming reward? Not as creepy as the replies with lovey-dovey saccharine platitudes, but still kinda creepy. https://warpcast.com/danicaswanson/0x25c9acd6

Wondering why we’re so driven to bootstrap a monastery in a minority religion that we’d launch on FC? Maybe this rant and personal story will help. TL;DR: Time to grow up, Pagans. https://paragraph.xyz/@blackstonesanctuary/episcopagan-why-this-polytheist-attended-an-episcopal-church?referrer=danicaswanson.eth

During onchain launch week, we published 5 new releases: a welcome page, intro blog posts, a collage art piece, and a Zorbish meditation video. We now have 10 fully edited/updated re-releases ready in our publishing queue. Keep an eye out this weekend for the first of them! https://paragraph.xyz/@blackstonesanctuary

"every channel owner is now a founder whether they know it or not" Yes. Channel decentralization is a much bigger deal than many of us realize. I'm actually stunned that it's happening at all. As a founder and former forum admin, I've been wishing for something like this for 20+ years. Feel fortunate to be here.

It’s an honor to be welcomed “…for strength of slowcore spirit.” Thanks so much, @slowcrypto. Happy to see slow culture gaining traction on FC… slowly, and of its own accord. From the info page for this NFT: “Shining Examples are earned and not bought.” Proof of work + leisure? 😄 ⌛ 🐢 💜

Everything went well today for us with the big channel changes. We have new writings lined up for publication, but we'll wait until the dust settles a bit. We won't be making any decisions about a "slowcore business model" soon, but we're excited to brainstorm. In the coming weeks we'll share some initial thoughts.

"Sometimes you have a slowcore day, but Slowcore is forever." Well said, and also noteworthy because this use of Slowcore with a capital "S" is a Farcaster first. Might even be a good candidate for the Farcaster Scenius Lexicon if the slow-culture trend continues to gain traction. What do you think, @adrienne?

Channels begin the decentralizing process tomorrow. @trishd will be moderator of /slowcore-hq, with /automod to control spam. This opens a big economic/social design space. We're excited to experiment with possibilities for a slowcore business model (!) to support our channel. https://warpcast.com/dwr.eth/0xdbce1cbd

Thanks for the appreciation today. So many tempting rabbit holes. But much as I love FC, I keep my focus narrow because I'm close to my full attention-capacity every day. Can't add any more info feeds (podcasts, blogs, hypersubs, group chats, tip tokens...) without cutting something elsewhere. Still love y'all tho!

Expanding on this: initiatives that recognize "builders" can make a big difference for writers + editors by taking care in advance to make it clear that we're on the list of roles who can qualify as builders. It lets writers/editors know our contributions are seen as valuable, rather than treated as an afterthought.

"Emerging slowcore scenius." Love it. It also needs to be said that Trish's "North Star" art deserves a closer look than you'll get through the thumbnail in my essay. Here it is in its full glory. Enjoy. https://zora.co/collect/zora:0x24453ebe8d78de52f6d253cf26fec18ab34b041f/1?referrer=danicaswanson.eth

Farcaster doesn’t yet have truly slowcore-friendly places for deep-dive leisurely discussions. Ideally we'd have places to gather where we’re not algorithmically or socially penalized for our slowness. That’s just table stakes, though. We also need places that *facilitate* and even *celebrate* slow culture.

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.
