New Policy Regarding Submissions and Artificial Intelligence

It’s been an interesting year. It seems like we’re saying that a lot nowadays. Over the course of 2022 we went from artificial intelligence apps that made mostly abstract but interesting (and sometimes disturbing) images based on prompts, to apps like Midjourney that can create infinite, amazing, quality, professional looking art in moments based on intricately detailed prompts. It can do so in just about any style, including styles prompted by particular artists. Now the ChatGPT app is starting to make similar waves among the writing community, and will no doubt progress just as exponentially ..read more

Review of Disney’s Strange World

Review of Disney’s Strange World by Justine Norton Kertson When I read Looper.com’s early review of Disney’s new animated film, Strange World, I knew I had to see the movie. After all, it was right there in the article’s title, “DISNEY DELIVERS A SOLARPUNK SPECTACLE.” What? Disney? I mean sure, not surprising. But should it be taken seriously as solarpunk? It was the first I’d heard of the new film, and I admit that I was excited to see it. Despite Disney’s dismal reputation when it comes to environmental responsibility, workers rights, and other important solarpunk values, I wanted to see an ..read more

by Ariel Kroon
1M ago
Solarpunk Presents Episode 9 As the changing climate increasingly disrupts our ways of life, we have three choices: do nothing, attempt to stop or even reverse climate change, and/or figure out how to withstand it. Option one is a terrible idea and the ship has (mostly) sailed on option two. But option three is how we learn to live—and maybe even thrive—in our changing world. Part of this is figuring out how to convey the information that climate researchers have gathered to the people—like farmers, water managers, and urban planners—who need to make decisions now—about things like what crops ..read more
