One of the cool things with #Mastodon is filtering out posts if a certain thing is starting to bother you - my timeline is filled with stuff about some guy called #elon, who apparently brought some centralised social media platform called #twitter or something... (Heck I know a lot of people are upset, but that's capitalism for you.)
Either way I can hide it all with Mastodon. Here's how using the web interface -> Preferences -> Filters -> Add new filter.
It is NOT true that #Twitter has an algorithm — but Mastodon doesn't. That is untrue.
Mastodon just has a different algorithm.
Mastodon is software — ALL SOFTWARE HAVE ALGORITHMS.
Mastodon just has a different algorithm. A simpler algorithm.
Mastodon's algorithm is — to display the posts of the people and hash-tags you follow, in the order they are posted, with newest posts being displayed first, and oldest last.
Just saw this and I think it is the most striking definition for people who defend AI arts aren't theft and spoiling creative community.
And my point is, if you make arts with AI it doesn't make you an artist. Arts have to create, practice and conceptualize by you own hands and mind.
Perhaps AI can be useful to visualize your idea, but if it REPLACES you in creation process and what you do is just tapping keywords, no, it's EVER. NOT. YOUR. ART.
