@peterswimm The techbros telling me AI will take my marketing job in x years have the same blind spot. I've used those AIs and what they all do is either fuck up hilariously badly or give you bland copy that anybody can write because it's "proven to work." Which is great. Until it abruptly stops working!
People keep mistaking the tool for the user, and it gets them every time.
@peterswimm I could have a snarky response but to be entirely sincere, as a filmmaker, where generative AI is always going to fall down is that it can only combine previously created things in previous created ways. It can be very good at that, and you can probably sell that, but it's product, not art.
@dannyblast No. I went to high school in some rural areas and the ratio of clods to smart people is no different. The problem is that rural areas are overwhelmingly due to lack of resources, social isolation, boredom, and poverty.
@varmazis Well to be fair if he has to spend that much money he might have to cut back on the cocaine.
@dannyblast Although looking at God's track record his valuing of human life makes capitalism seem way better.
@dannyblast I'd say it's one step worse: Capitalism hasn't CONSIDERED the value of human life. It hasn't entered the equation at all.
The fact that you think I'm pro-capitalist because I don't gratify your ego from a drive-by toot tells me all I need to know.
If every project in the utility scale solar queue in the US was built and connected (it won't be alas) it would literally double the amount of utility scale solar on Earth.
This doesn't include residential or non grid connected solar.
