Fun group, but really could have been a 10 minute presentation. You are the artist. Your tools should serve you.

Brendan Dawes is really engaging and pleasantly nutty. Panel tried to allow for themes to be ok, sorta succeeded.

Let people who use it use it. Want to still be a rockstar designer? Do that. Live/let live all will survive.

I don't think any 1 platform can kill an entire craft. The ability to adapt is everything.

My answer: yes, and Tumblr to boot (though I am a fan). But can't wait to see what these pros have to say!
