Blockchain and your art
« on: March 22, 2018, 08:49:04 AM »

Here is a good birds-eye overview on how blockchain technology might impact your art in the future.

It kind of raises the question, would you be willing to adopt this technology and consequently manage your art digitally? I can see how it would be very useful for "limited edition" management, but I'm not so sure the average artist wants to be bothered too much with complex technology that tends to hamper creativity more than it facilitates.

We are virtually at the cradle of this revolution. The fundamental infrastructure is being built as we speak. It will lead us in directions that are very hard to predict. For now, best to just hodl Bitcoin :-)

:-) noted...

However, a better, more humanitarianly useful approach to revolution would be to cash in the "bits" and send the euro equivalent across to me, where I would reinvest it thoughfully (and thankfully) in my own planned researches into the various pleasures open to any suitably funded member of the older generation.

One such field of research would measure the benefits (or otherwise) of cruising the French canals on a top-grade barge, testing the local food and wines (at great risk to my personal well-being - heart, liver etc. - so you understand at once that this would obviously be a totally altruistic venture, and solely in the furtherance of science). Recent events at Trèbes, aka Canal Central, illustrate just how perilous to life an experiment like this could actually turn out to be.

That possibility explored, the challenges overcome, the next investigation in the series would be of the various Relais & Châteaux offerings that strike me as appropriate for in-depth study. Never a dull moment, always a difficult choice to be made. You begin to see how better-invested your "bits" could otherwise be?

And that doesn't even begin to touch upon the intellectual, intercultural and international benefits to us all: the required guides, all beautiful ladies (in the interests of equal gender opportunity) of a certain age and discretion would enjoy temporary employment and the thrill of being part of such a noble experiment.

This would represent but the surface of my investigations on behalf of older mankind. In parallel, I would intend, this being LuLa, and as a measure of my appreciation, to deepen the research by carrying various models of Leica camera on controlled sections of the project, thus, at last, proving the appropriateness or otherwise of the different types to the situations (I'm thinking particularly of the weight/available energy/stress equation) encountered during a typical gentleman's travels.

Contribute early, while you have the chance to be a part of this; once the budgetary requirement is reached, the contributions period will be closed.
