Algorithm Slaves

Firstly these days content creators seem intent on following their audiences. Learn more in Algorithm-Slaves-Bob Davis Podcast 1089..

Relevance

Secondly that is to say relevance for a creator is more and more about what the audience wants.

Certainly not what the artist or creator wants.

And today’s algorithms often determine the audience.

What Is Creating?

But what if creating is about leading the audience?

To clarify sooner or later creators have to bite the hands that feed them.

Dangers Of A Narrow Audience

Or face an increasingly narrow audience although it may be increasing in size.

Even more when likes and shares and subscriptions become the order of the day why not have AI do everything?

Role Of The Artist

In short what is the role of the human artist?

And what is the process of creativity?

Finally it’s my perception algorithm slaves build silos of opinion which actually limit objective discussion.

In addition what does one learn if they stay in that same silo forever?

Therefore it’s easy to see why many people think on the same tracks and perform in the same ways, in the end.

Grow

As a result creators do not grow.

Imprisoned By An Audience

Likewise I have certainly had my struggles being imprisoned by an audience, back in the day.

It’s About Control

However I’m grateful to have arrived at a place where the audience and the ‘shoulds’ don’t control what I do.

Didn’t Want To Talk About This

In Algorithm-Slaves-Bob Davis Podcast 1089 I take on a subject I really didn’t want to talk about.

Craven

On the other hand the craven nature of creators on almost every subject suggests it’s time to talk about this.

Audience Dictators

Finally listeners should not be required to dictate content.

Or even asked about it.

Yet you see and hear this all the time.

Likes and Shares

Subsequently likes and shares, and subs, define the future for those who ‘influence’ society as a whole.

Or so they think.

Thus Algorithm-Slaves-Bob Davis Podcast 1089.

Breaking Out

In conclusion content creators might consider breaking out of the self imposed tyranny.

Who Knows Best

In short when it comes to the very human nature of creating, the audience doesn’t always know best.

And neither does the algorithm.

Taylor Swift-Kanye West-When Artists Pick Sides-Podcast 765

Taylor Swift gets involved in a senate race. Kanye West endorses the president. These days when emotions run high, do artists risk their fan base when they pick a side? Find out in Taylor Swift-Kanye West-When Artists Pick Sides-Podcast 765.

Influencers Who May Not Be Influential

Moreover it’s not just artists. Comedians, actors and music stars get publicity for choosing sides too. Especially relevant are political bloggers and other influencers who think they can pick winners in national political events.

Religious You Tubers On Crack

In addition religious broadcasters spend a lot of time back pedaling from predictions of the end of the world. Why would those who are about transcending the world choose to endorse a political viewpoint in the world? We’ll talk about it in┬áTaylor Swift-Kanye West-When Artists Pick Sides-Podcast 765.

Image Versus Free Speech

This isn’t about free speech. The seed of thought here is about image. I think artists are bigger than the slimy and messy world of politics. Finally, even political commentators ruin themselves when they feel the need to rush out and endorse a political ‘hero’ of the moment. The goal is usually relevance. Or, is it ego?

When Idealists and Artists Fall Into The Oily Political Pit

In the end, it’s my experience politicians never do what they promise. Finally the seedy world of politics especially in Washington DC is no place for idealists. Truth is, the best artists can channel their frustration or anger into…art! Real art.

Memes Videos and Rants

Unfortunately it seems like local artists and commentators as well as a few national artists who should know better, feel compelled to fill their social media feeds with memes, videos and rants. I am sure most of them would hope those will someday be forgotten. As a result I tentatively suggest artists and commentators use our talent and our tools rather than overt rants and social media.
