That there is no perfect defense. There is no protection. Being alive means being exposed; it’s the nature of life to be hazardous—it’s the stuff of living.

  • Only recently have they started leaving companies like OpenAI and taking a stance because they‘re actually seeing what their creation is used for and with how little care for human life it‘s been handled.

    Is this true though? From my understanding, Altman was able to overrule the board largely because the employees (especially the one who had been with the company for more than 1-2 years) were worried about their stock options.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if the vast majority of the OpenAI team are ghouls just like Altman, that fundamentally lack humanity (incapable of honesty, inability to tell right from wrong, incapable of empathy).

    Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mean this in the Hollywood sense, like the evil antagonists in say star wars, I am sure they come off as “normal” during a casual conversation. I am referring to going deeper and asking subtle questions referring to matters of ethics and self-enrichment in an off the record environment. They will always come up with some excuse to justify their greed as being “for the betterment of humanity” or some other comical word salad.

  • This confuses me… I thought that a project being attached to a crypto/Blockchain was a good thing? Because things you create on the Blockchain stay yours and are secure and the project can somehow self fund itself. All very confusing, but something like that. Are you saying that ALL Projects built on a Blockchain are suspicious? Very interesting

    I do think blockchain/crypto is a massive red flag.

    From a product perspective, the focus will always be on “pump and dump” not the actual product/service. See “web 3.0 gaming” for a perfect example.

    Not sure what you mean about “staying yours” and “secure”.

    The tone and the writing style seem to imply otherwise, it’s almost like PR copytext. For example, Point 7 arguably contradicts Point 5 and 6. It’s like an infomercial for tech fans.

    Although I see what you mean with respect to the concept of implementation and the actual implementation.

    Personally, I think this is more of a financial play, he’s got to be thinking about how to maximize benefits (financial, status) in the next few years before the hype dies down. This is a very cynical mode of thinking; but I think my cynicism is justified.
