There are 700,000 miles of wire in this facility. If the word hate was etched on every nano-angstrom of wire in this facility it would not equal one one billionth of the hate I feel for Facebook.

I'm curious why you say that. Nvidia has been building and designing cards to be able to handle things like this as a major part of their business model for quite some time. This is nothing new. Their cards are in hundreds of thousands of AI servers in everything from some dude's garage up to massive supercomputers owned by universities, the military, large corporations and so on.

I think he was expecting them to turn down what's likely an 8-figure contract out of principle because Facebook is evil.

Does this computer operate in the year 2525?

On the one hand, Harlan Ellison would probably detest Facebook.

On the other hand, Harlan would probably consider Facebook a legitimate form of torture for the computer to inflict on people.

I don't want to give away too much. But in the books, turns out Colossus was a good guy after all and the Earth was on a path to prosperity and peace. (After a bunch of crazy stuff happened)

Can't embed Facebook videos yet, if I find a YouTube version I'll post it.
