      STMB   01/22/2017

      Sorry for the outage. The board went down for repairs on January 5th, and we didn't expect to be out for a full 16 days.  STMB is using a default skin, as you can see, and that will probably be the case for a few weeks.  Meanwhile, the board is working better than it ever has before.

TWITTER BUYING SOUNDCLOUD ?

17 posts in this topic

Hm.

Interesting.

There has been a flurry of major media outlets snapping up other, important, but smaller ones. Never seen this before. I guess its good if Twitter manages it good. We shall see.

Facebook, bought Oculous Rift

Google bought everything.... Actually, I am very intrigued to see what Google has planned for our world over the next 30 years.

Google are jokers man, it really can't cost them that much to make Youtube & Google+ decent websites.

Youtube.
- Alert system is really undependable, you're never fully notified of user interactions

- The login system sucks since they tried to merge it with Google+

- Subscription system is a pain in the arse to navigate

- The search system is barely existent, you can literally search a videos name and not find it at times

- After all these years the comment system still isn't, it sould be easy to navigate while media plays too

- User pages just went to shit and are also a pain to find stuff on

Google+

- Hilariously unintuitive navigation system, I've closed the tab after giving up trying to find shit there

- It literally was created to jump on Facebooks info sharing and advertising bandwagon, they've focused on these elements more than user interaction

- As a website, it was incomplete for too long, when combined with Youtube there were various bugs with posting, sharing and usernames

- It offers nothing innovative or new and is either worse than or on par with new myspace

That's just what I can remember now though.

Oh, sorry I thought you said Google. Not Google+. Yah, I never use Google+. I have no complaints really. Do you have a design background?

I just checked the article. There's an update that says "Twitter has reportedly walked away from talks with SoundCloud."

Google is pretty good, it's too bad a lot of stuff is censored, but it works and is a powerful tool. Technically. I've done a bit of web design, but generally I'm a digital artist and animator. I that guy who done the "Don't Blink" video and Jonti's "Hornets Nest", they're scruffy as fuck tho...

These are old though, my composition and so on has improved since.

Yeah, I animated both. Jonti got in touch with me, the Lord Quas one was from around 2009, I resented it and thought it was shit until I uploaded it to Youtube and people praised it, I'm an harsh critic, even towards myself.

Dude,

Its clear you like to synch up visual movements and audio rhythms. Vey nice, huge fan of that. One dude who is a beast at it, is Beeple. Check him out if you haven't already. He does all sorts of visual shit for Brainfeeder.

Yah, obviously different visual styles you have, but his ability to synch up sounds with visuals is pretty high end. If you hadn't known of him, it might have been a touch more inspiration. Anyhow, good luck man. Keep doing your thing!
