Thanks! From your descriptions, I'll have to look into these.

Context is an important tool when determining authorial intent, but one can investigate a piece under the frame of the death of the author too should they want to understand more what they personally gain from a work or what someone else entirely gets out of it.

Am I understanding correctly that you're suggesting an extension of death of the author to death of the industry to discern what one draws from art?

[-] [email protected] 2 points 5 days ago

To clarify, I'm asking in the sense of art made within larger businesses/corporations, wherein artists often give up some or all of the ownership of their work. Think of the fraught relationships between bands and their music labels, actors/directors and studios, developers/writers and publishers, etc.

In a similar vein to the question of separating art from the artist, I think it's also worth discussing how one approaches appreciating art despite its often industrial ~~and commercial~~ origins.

Edited for clarity: commercial is sort of redundant, and may have given an impression of there being issue taken with any sort of money made from art, which wasn't the intent. Focus was intended more on industrial, i.e. bigger business, art output.

so it’s hard to engage in a conversation.

Have you tried asking a question related to the original post's content?

Are recalls possible in other US states, such that people could try to recall other governors?

[...] I just want to point out that automating things that exist purely in the digital domain is far easier than automating things like ship breaking.

Not that you're saying otherwise, however isn't that even more of a reason more developers and resources should be allocated toward automating complex and risky physical processes?

That could be part of it, but I was thinking more in terms of sharing resources like what you linked in your other comment as well as other methods to encourage community activity.

Also technical stuff like what to be aware of regarding banner/image resolutions, language settings, handling community handoffs to other moderators, etc. Basically a mix of more specific Lemmy support and general community building/outreach discussion.

Right, I was wondering if there might be a distinct term so that it might be clearer that a private entity's action is not a violation of rights in the sense that a government action might be. Thinking mainly of why xkcd #1357 tends to come up a lot

It doesn't seem like it would necessarily fit either [email protected] or [email protected], and [email protected] I think may be more intended for Lemmy World community moderators.

What are you going to study in college? Anything that might benefit from particular specs?

Each time I've read into self-hosting it often sounds like opening stuff up to the internet adds a bunch of complexity and potential headaches, but I'm not sure how much of it is practicality vs being excessively cautious.

By appreciating I mean taking the time to take something in more thoroughly than skimming, while also not letting oneself lose track of what's happening around them.

This could be things that once were commercialized but are now public domain, or have largely resisted commercialization to this day. In this context I mean this as aiming for profit and being sold/monetized.

Plus Taylor Swift who has been immensely popular for like...What, over a decade now? Only now suddenly wielding her influence to run the government or something? Please, she's rich, popular, and in business, she basically operates as her own independent nation without needing to run anyone else's. 😂
