All right, I'm saying it. I'm honestly shocked how much attention is getting and how often it's being praised as "the next big thing in tech" and "revolutionary".

Does anyone stop to think how much this is going to screw over actual human artists?

Are we even sure it IS actually creating these artworks from a zero state, instead of copying elements from prior existing works?

Greetings and well met! Those of you who have followed me for some time on other social media platforms or DeviantArt, or who play certain Pokémon fan games, likely already know who I am. For everyone else:

I'm an aspiring writer, Pokémon role-player, and staff member for a fan-made MMO, who for many years now has owned a OC I call Jinji. Originally my persona, Jinji has over the years morphed into his own character and been joined by a cast of other ; and now I write all kinds of stories about their antics on DeviantArt, Patreon, and my website (jinji.gamescodex.net). Even more recently, I've been collaborating with an artist friend to create Jinji comics!

I joined with a view of moving away from . Still not entirely sure how I'm going to use this going forward, though. -^
