@djsundog tomorrow's headline: SUNDOG ENDORSES FELONIOUS MISUSE OF THE FEDERAL POSTAL SYSTEM
@gaditb happy to join a club with luminaries like Soupy Sales in it
I mean, that was always an option, it's just hard to scale unless you're a church or a big non-profit.
@knightly so what we really need is a creator discovery platform and a handbook for how to open a post office box in various parts of the world!
Heh, that defeats the whole point of having a platform in the first place, to streamline the process and make it easy for people to support creators and creators to engage their supporters as possible.
@knightly okay, so we need a discovery and engagement platform for creators, where they can each personalize their interactions with their supporters. we can call it "my space"
@djsundog So long as it has some kind of address book with a list of creators, what they're making, pictures of them and their creations, what-have you.
A "Face Book" if you will~

@djsundog Someone sent me a 5 dollar bill once. I still wonder how they thought I was going to spend it, in Germany.
