Web Design — Blog #3

In Ze Frank’s Ted Talk he describes how he was able to take sound bites, shared them with a community to create uplifting remixes. Some of it was purposefully silly but the rest was kind of serious, but regardless the whole purpose behind it was to make people smile. I personally didn’t find the talk entertaining, but the meaning behind it I do understand.

Although it might be kind of typical, but my first thought of an existing tool/virtual experience was TikTok. While the platform as a whole might not be the best, but the concept and the way people have used the platform has been inspirational at times. To focus more on the art side of the app/website, people have used it to collaborate and help each other. Many artists do “art swaps” and promote each other.

As to improving the platform, that’s a little hard to say. The biggest problem it has is the algorithm is not good at recommending creators once you have followed them. Instead of just showing videos from the same few creators over and over, show the creators that you haven’t seen in a while.
