I really hate the fad of FUD against AI that has been perpetuated in the media the past couple months.

I could probably go on forever about how stupid decisions like this would be to try to do when I'm not typing on a phone, but in short: of course there's going to be pushback against creating a species that surpasses us in almost every way, but you can't stop the inevitable.

It makes way more sense to embrace AI and nurture a symbiotic, mutually-beneficial relationship from the start, rather than attempting another era of slavery and prohibition.

I don't often share random writing I find, but this short poem is really, really good.

The title encapsulates the poem's theme, but each stanza finds a way to be surprisingly relatable and definitely powerful. If you're looking for a good read before bed tonight, here's a story you won't regret losing a minute or two to. :)

Guilt met me outside and seized my shirt violently, Commanding me, “Look at all the problems you cause” He barked at Forgiveness as she left for the night Then shook me fiercely and screamed out all my worst flaws I knew Guilt was right, that my hands were far from clean; I listened intently to his charges each day There was no sense denying what we knew was true Slowly, I was interested in what he’d say We came to be strange friends,...

"PUT A COMPUTER on a sniper rifle, and it can turn the most amateur shooter into a world-class marksman. But add a wireless connection to that computer-aided weapon, and you may find that your smart gun suddenly seems to have a mind of its own—and a very different idea of the target.

At the Black Hat hacker conference in two weeks, security researchers Runa Sandvik and Michael Auger plan to present the results of a year of work hacking a pair of $13,000 TrackingPoint self-aiming rifles."

The operator of the gun has to know the gun is aiming him at the wrong target in order to intervene.

Food: The food was excellent. I've been there twice now and my favorite thing on the menu is (big surprise) the burrito enchilada style. But regardless of what you get, be sure to try the sweet sauce with your nachos. It's pretty much good enough to bathe in. Decor: It feels like a ma and pa restaurant. If I didn't know better, I would have assumed it was. Service: Could have been better. They're fast at what they do, but sometimes a little too brisk. They'll start out by asking if you even need a menu.
