Might it be that the people who believe #ChatGPT (and others) will change "everything" are also people whose own work is pretty darn close to "bullshit/jargon as a service"? And maybe these are also the same people who have the most influence in media?
And perhaps when hearing these prophesies we should all first make sure they aren't just projecting their own experiences to areas they don't know anything about?
Press conference and live stream about the #IPCC Synthesis Report of the Sixth Assessment Report will be in two hours.
This should be top news everywhere this week, time for the media to do its job.
A fantastic article by Elizabeth Weil about the research of @emilymbender.
Journalism at its finest.

I'm having a hard time accepting that "gauge" is pronounced exactly like "gage" in "engage". It's like there's no "u" even though it's right there, in the middle!
Happy #InternationalWomensDay !
Took too long but I finally managed to switch my #rust web site from #tide to #axum. I still like Tide but there are just too many Tokio-only crates I want to use that I really had no choice.
Async Rust is great but it can also be a big time sink.
"Environmentalists do not simply express private preferences, but put forward ideas of the good, based on scientific knowledge and phrased in moral terms.” – Avner de-Shalit
A chilling character called The Judge in Cormac McCarthy's Blood Meridian explains his vile reason to document all of nature:
"Whatever in creation exists without my knowledge exists without my consent.
These anonymous creatures may seem little or nothing in the world. Yet the smallest crumb can devour us. [...] Only nature can enslave man and only when the existence of each last entity is routed out and made to stand naked before him will he be properly suzerain [overlord] of the earth."
Recent research has shown that increased logging in #Finland has collapsed our carbon sinks.
Yet during an election debate, the question "Is logging in Finland on a sustainable level?" had mostly positive answers. Whether or not something is sustainable is now just a matter of opinion.
It's increasingly obvious that #sustainability has been co-opted by the hegemony, and now serves only those in power.
When talking about environmental issues the term should be avoided altogether.
Me: "..this is also related to China's plans for world domination."
11yo: "Why do they want world domination?"
Indeed. China wants to surpass USA (which wanted to surpass Europe), but why is it that we just accept that domination is a valid goal to begin with?
