Habt ihr da Tipps oder kann 1 da eigentlich das erstbeste nehmen?

Hey mastofolks,
I know there are some creative people here and some are successful at publishing sequential artwork like comics.
I've had an idea for a comic roaming around my head for years and I even tried publishing it, but I messed up due to inexperience in character design and worldbuilding.
Would anyone of you be willing to help me out a little with discussion, hints or even showing me their process?
Thank you in advance!

Boosts are very welcome.

My wife and I are going through a bit of a rough time at the moment. We're privileged to be in a better position than a lot of people right now, but we're stuck indefinitely outside our country of residence (China) and surfing from couch to couch. Most of our money is in a Chinese bank account we can't access while outside China (looong story). If anyone can offer me some paid work I can do remotely from #Aotearoa (#NZ), that would really help.

If the only way you can help is a boost, cool :)

@reticuleena Die verbreitetste Religion in Deutschland ist nicht etwa das Christentum, sondern Polizeianbetung. Das letzte Mal habe ich das in diesem Maß nach dem G20 in Hamburg gespürt.

Dem @RaumZeitLabor wurde von Vermieter gekündigt, weil Brandschutz. Wir suchen in #Mannheim neue Räumlichkeiten! Am 31.10.2020 endet unser Vertrag, es eilt also etwas phänomenal großartiges zu finden. Wenn ihr etwas sehr, hört, wen kennt, der wen kennt: meldet euch!

Combine this with what #Microsoft is doing with #WSL2 and the strategy from proprietary vendors seems to be "out of sight, out of mind".

#Linux will be something that spins up transparently for the cases where it's necessary, but most won't know or notice, so over time Linux won't even be in the running when thinking about switching OSes for many, simply because it will be a lot less front of mind.

I guess it's just another phrase in the eternal battle for software freedom, all is not lost.

So #Apple just announced their plan to kill general purpose computing.

They're switching to their own ARM-based SoCs and while I have no love for Intel or x86 in general, Apple's solution is designed to ensure you won't be able to run anything but #Apple signed images on the hardware you supposedly own.

Native #Linux? Forget it. But don't worry, you'll still be able to run it in a VM for those pesky containers you're using at work.

#Linux is going to be a permanent second stringer there.

Das preiswürige 5-teilige Radio-Feature »Oury Jalloh und die Toten des Polizeireviers Dessau« von Margot Overath macht da weiter, wo ein Polizeirevier und einige Staatsanwält.innen die Aufklärung verhindern.

Mit Erfolg: Sie hat den mutmaßlichen Haupttäter und weitere Opfer ermittelt. Jetzt müssten nur noch Staatsanwaltschaften und Gerichte ihre Arbeit tun.

Added an update to the article, also adding it here so you don't need to read it all over again:

(Update, 2020-06-20)

It seems that I didn’t make it clear enough that I expect encrypted chats to NOT be the default. They shouldn’t even be too easy to initiate, and probably come with a warning. This is an important point! It’s not possible to keep the conveniences of unencrypted chats and a very high level of security at the same time. In the model I’m thinking of, encrypted chats become something you choose to use explicitly, fully knowing that you have to give up some convenience for the gained security. Just like whispering in real life is less convenient than talking normally, so it is with an encrypted chat. Making this trade-off explicit, visible and understandable to the user is the key aspect here.
