A "Idea" board based on this project. There are many sources of income that can be had through any single project, from different angles. If you can't copy something from here to make a few bucks... I can always use a boat wash ;)visual_Business_Network_sm.png

there's 199 woo-member (studio)
and 35 for woo-gallery plugins (gallery)
I may add a js gallery to Alter-Ego site

There's you as a consultant
There's you as just you - Head Influencer/responsible party
There's you as the artist
As the Studio Lead
You as Gallery Curator
There's you as the Agency
There's you as the Agency Head (customer svc)

Many jobs to do ;)

I have been tossing back and forth the most bang for the effort/buck effects method to use on the proof of ownership avatar display artwork ...

I think I am going to hand over tts functionality to TacoTron2. Its been around for a few years now and its short run results are pretty impressive. I can take the created voice and use it for live line carry (audio/video calls) after the fact. But for vid/audio recorded usage it should fit the bill nicely.

It has had its detractors from the beginning however.
This guys made it sound so good 4 years ago...

Came up with a total of a little over 1000 pics to use for my first collection.
Of course I'm not showing the "goodies" ;)

collection-demo.png

I have about 10 projects already image rendered (anywhere from [email protected]).

The web1 sites are up and social profiles secured.

I now need to split off an IPFS node for each server. that will give each file a minimal 4x pin, geo distributed over the US ;)

Anyone know of another "all over apparel" POD?
It is no wonder POD print houses always have quality issues, and it's not the uploaders "carelessness in conversion" that so many affiliate gurus explain it away as... it could also be rote and routine customer neglect on the POD side.

So much for the modern technological improvements in customer service.
Anyone know of another "all over apparel" POD?

I am not going to blindly convert rgb to cmyk to blindly rematch to an unknown printer profile (they don't seem to accept the correct print file anyway) , then "re-RGB" it so it can match a mockup tool [that's the reason they want rgb, to make the mockups look good, fuck your prints :( ] for a company that does nothing except prepare language in the TOS to avoid responsibility for the losses their sabotage of products through negligence produces. I don't work for you. (This is how to avoid charge back losses and complaints my friends ;) )

TBH - The true reason is probably because they are a multi-printer facility company.

With no help from CS, I did a little research.

Each printer has its own profile and products might be printed at one of several places. Most modern printers have conversion profiles built in, but it is not always as good as a manual correction set. Unless I go with a local (single facility shoreside) I will probably run into the same situation elsewhere.

While getting hands on manual setting functionality would be nice, auto-correction has improved over the last few years and a little less hands on and more spot checks might be more appropriate. If I can ensure quality, letting the printer auto-correct might not turn out so bad.

But I will have to get a new contact at CS b4 I decide, that is for sure.

I might just use their mock up tool anyways ;)

Just a taste, but the studio vertical livestream in its infancy (recorded demo mockup)

.

I can run this 24/7 (not that I will as of yet), go live, then save the vids on YT servers as unlisted for team edits or private to myself.

Then I can slice and dice for Reels, stories etc with low storage overhead and without worry of future dupe concerns ;)

Take advantage of "disappearing" platforms first,

move content with best live metrics to permanent platforms.

(be sure not to throw the baby out with the bathwater when metric availability is low however, rely on internal QA as well)

This demo is only for studio content use.

For the Avatar and the gallery different content basis (further up the studio chain) will be used but the same methodology should be followed for not only convenience, but for brand consistency.

I was pondering, especially with the recent backlash from the Luna plunge, which blockchain I plan to release my first collection(s) on.

I think that Ethereum offers the best upfront coinage crowd perceived value.

I believe that Polygon will be the most cost effective production costs upfront.

While considering the fully functioning Avatar NFT product I had in mind, having long fell in love with technologies such as Freenet (long before Tor and IPFS, and a kind of cross between them functionally, like a rudimentary ancestor to I2P) user security quickly came to mind. If you truly believe in your NFTs being able to hold immense value, both your security and that of your clients need to be considered. Like a bank protects assets, you need both a vault and an armored car for some of your larger or privacy conscious client transactions.

I did not want to confine myself to Moneroland, it lacks vault deposits, and the public nature of txn on ETH/elsewhere is sans an armoured car. I checked out Secret Network, and it has an ideologically and AFAICT technologically sound setup. There's only one problem... This is all of thier NFTs over $500.

However, because they have a transfer bridge and wrapped ETH. I can find a way to do as an asset-first transfer upon solidified purchase agreement for those that wish it (secret contract). That way I can capitalize upon the public value of ETH while being one of the few NFT projects with a privacy upsell. Plus, If I can take only a few very private collectors into private auction wonderland with me, the above figures wont matter for proceeding private transactions that I can place on SCRT chain natively with their- now-mine ETH/Monero in a secret contract.

Of course I already have thoughts of the "next stage" of my projects.

I have been researching trusted execution environments for sec reasons.

I came up with an idea that actually seemed to make sense for fixing the Blockchain POW/POS wars by "splitting the baby".

If you use TEEs as a separate network that allows for transaction node selection using a multiple TEE randomized selection algo and records this to their own chain, which the main/test net pulls as a "work order", you would have an unfudgable mining allocator that doesn't weigh the system down by replacing computational waste for security.

Checked into the ARM dev license to work on the TEE chips with a KIEL IDE... about $3500/yr.
the works perpetually for 10k.

Want to know the price of a good hardware dev just getting out of school or before for any large project you want?...

I am hoping for under price of a yearly IDE license ;)

I know TEEs have gotten a bad name for it's "protected content" usage, but what if it was flipped on its head and used for decentralization and privacy protection. You only have to change who has access from Big Corp to NONE (in the case of mine node txn awarding selection) and to Users Only (in the case of txn).

And with no "Work" or "Staking" needing to be done...

You now have Visa scalability with Blockchain Stability and TEE/encryption security...

Oh well...

One step at a time
