Yet another XOXO talk, and spoiler alert this was the one I was most excited to rewatch. We have the excellent John Roderick from The Long Winters and Roderick On The Line, talking about german tv and the myth of "no effort."
Day 4 of ??? of XOXO talks! With the magnificent icon of my weird internet childhood Niel Cicierega talking about creativity, the before-times of old school internet, and how to be an internet explorer!
The whole reason I even knew about the festival was because of a rad policy: they record all of their mainstage talks, and release them for free on the internet. They just started releasing their talks for this year's fest, starting with a discussion on contracts for creatives and knowing your worth by the fantastic Gaby Dunn of Just Between Us fame(1) talking about the financial realities of creating on the internet. Enjoy!
