dxd's Pick of the Month:
by capncraka is how I feel sometimes in #devart when it gets a little too silly. Emoticons like this remind me to try to look on the lighter side of laugh and make a joke out of as much as I can!

CoolClimate Art ContestThe Gulf oil disaster is but one example of the ways in which our fossil fuel economy is impacting the planet we call home. But as bad as this catastrophe is, the specter of global climate change looms even larger as a threat to sustaining life on Earth. Despite overwhelming evidence -- species extinction and dwindling water supplies to mass migrations and mega-storms -- the public is still unclear what climate change really means for them.CoolClimate Art Contest by fourteenthstar

Interactive News 01: should DA get bigger?Best kind of journalism is the one that generates mass opinion on the said matter. Best kind of a news story is the one that gathers the most audience to itself, one that tells a story most passionately and most clearly.Interactive News 01: should DA get bigger? by alexiuss
Today I present to you an idea- interactive opinion journalism/news.
Every news article that goes out there on the DA News page is viewed by thousands of deviantartists, every comment is read, every opinion is dissected and discussed/fought over in the comments section.

Her gut was telling her not to expect much. Her heart on the other hand, was soaring. The combination made her stomach lurch.
Dumping her bag on the floor she sat on the bed, crushing the envelope slightly. With one deep breath, she closed her eyes and ripped open one side of the envelope. Best to get it over with quickly. Like ripping off an old scab. Turning the envelope upside down, she shook it and a single sheet of paper floated down to the floor. Picking it up, she read
"Miss Min Jee,
We regret to inform you that "
And without reading any further she crumpled up the page and lobbed it at the shuttered window. Fli
Salutations, I'm a computer geek and science nerd who happens to take mediocre photographs on occasion and has delusions of being a writer, I tend to over use to the point of it being punctuation, and you can count on me to bore you to death on any number of scientific topics, or anything technical at all for that matter.|
