A little irritated on reading this article:
Like, way to make the point about concerns over curators taking credit over everyone else, and then not feature any quotes with the creators and instead multiple from Rami and Jupiter - and not even get a single contributor's NAME, but talk about the difficulty of "wrangling over 350 developers"
I dont WANT to be mad at them, esp. Jupi, but this article reads like a PR piece for 2 people only

@emptyfortress @nach I've been talking to people in other art forms as well and fortunately/unfortunately a lot of it is the same or at least similar, but people can feel drastically more burned in videogame spaces because the scale of tech capital just makes the gap between having and having-not that much larger. I like what the Art and Labor podcast and associated Festival Workers Association have been suggesting, if you're not aware of them!
I personally feel like consciousness is often too fuzzy a concept to be useful a lot of the time, but if it’s defined as having subjective experiences - the perception of a self or ego that sits at the center of the sensations, processing, and decision-making that our brains + bodies get up to - I suspect this is a pretty common thing to emerge out of embodied experience.
