As we are in the Anthropocene Extinction event now, will the human species survive beyond our grandchildren's generation?

/Probably not.

Open source, distributed computing has always been the better, if a bit less user-friendly alternative to Big Tech.

Jaron Lanier is one interesting cat.  If you haven't read "You Are Not a Gadget," I highly recommend it.  Thought-provoking, to say the least.

You should probably check that guy's creds before you say that.

Still, "white guy with dreads" is never a good look.

What about people who identify as Gadget?

Least we could do is heed his words, as he is doing his bit by not wasting water for hair washing.

The message is salient; why are we attacking the messenger?

Most thinking begins with wanting something to be true, and ends with finding a satisfactory excuse to believe that it's true. People do not like talking about this.

He has done execellent work laying the groundwork for Meta's current stock crash by pioneering VR.

When "activists" start burning down the nearest Exxon corporate office instead of throwing soup at a van Gogh, we might be on the verge of taking this seriously.


Otherwise we're fighting mass extinction with performance art.  Which is hilarious when you think about it.  Like using interpretive dance to fight the Nazis.

Not really sure what Adam Duritz is complaining about.
Information has been corrupted throughout history.  What's the saying "History is written by the winners"?  Hell, look at how American history is taught in school.  You would think Europeans sailed over here for freedom and discovered a new land to live and worship freely.  Lost in the text are the horrible atrocities committed by European settlers on native people.
Look at all the biased "scientific studies" paid for by the manufacturers that produce goods and services.  Information is constantly corrupted for personal gain.
And power has always been consolidated into the hands of the few.  American billionaires (and the politicians they bribe).  British royalty.  Chinese dynasties. Egyptian pharaohs. The internet is just another medium for the rich and powerful to continue their rule over the less fortunate.

I'm sorry.  I was wrong.  He's actually a cross between Adam Duritz and Danny McBride.

Smarted. You should feel good about yourself and post more information abut online operant conditioning.

Well, that's a whole new level of "passed out drunk and friends glued pubes to his face".

Well one thing that I know is true in this world is that when nappy headed white dudes with dreadlocks speak, everyone pays attention and listens and takes them very seriously.

I read quite a bit.  My favorite activity.   I read the quotes from this guy a few times.  I still don't know what the fark he's on about.   Next.

The terrible and awesome power of the internet to collect data on us is sufficiently advanced that we can be binned fairly simply and subjected to stimulus based on impulse-response matrices that are constantly, automatically refined, to achieve a general increase in desired behavior.

That's all fine or at least kinda ok when the goal is to sell more chickpeas, not so great when the goal is to kill more trans people.

Don't be such an optimist. There are a lot of truly terrible generations to come.

I have learned something from this thread today. The ad hominin attacks toward Jaron Lanier's appearance show that a large number of people are merely imbeciles dressed in savant's clothing.
