    I bet I'm older than you, but I can understand people being afraid of confronting aesthetics...

      That is most likely true. I did not mean to touch aesthetics in my previous comment.

      While this is a new medium that allows publishing anything you can imagine, I feel as it's just a distraction after distraction that makes it hard to focus on the message. Or maybe that's the idea — to interpret the message however you want.

      I honestly wouldn't know how to explain this app to a friend. Just art, eh?

        I agree it's very difficult to explain this app to anyone, I think that's what I find most compelling about it. You can't just say it's like X+Y, it's a very weird and very independent thing.

        I don't agree with the idea of distraction over message. It does, for me, lend itself to communicating complex abstract concepts, but that isn't inherit to the medium. It's just what's fun to make.
