Does making sure he's transphobic while he's being misogynistic mean this is unfortunately technically inclusive?

Also don't forget this.

Well, history being that '32 bit windows executable' ended up being one of the most popular and widespread platforms that had any kind of longevity because unlike Apple which makes sport of breaking legacy applications, and for all of their many faults, Microsoft caters to business who actually want a stable platform. Stable enough that Linux can target it for compatibility too!

If Microsoft decides to go the way of Apple, it's going to trash the Linux gaming ecosystem too unfortunately. I'm little worried that WINE has lead to a kind of complacency where we don't ask for native anything because the compatibility layer is so good. I thought the Surface and it's weird ARM chip was a sign that we were getting rugged, but it looks like not yet.

That's convicted fraudster sam, different sam. Easy mistake, you can usually tell them apart by the hair.

This is Sam "WorldCoin" Altman we're talking about, I'm sure he assumes they can mine crypto with it.

They're probably some sort of semver now.

Please put an NSFW tag on this. I was on the train and when I saw this I had to start furiously masturbating. Everyone else gave me strange looks and were saying things like “what the fuck” and “call the police”. I dropped my ray bans and everyone around me saw this augment. Now there is a whole train of men masturbating together at this one augmented reality. This is all your fault, you could have prevented this if you had just tagged this post NSFW

Seeing more pushback than I would have expected on EAs, EACCs, and Bostroms than I would have expected.

The actually not even really a hatchet job NYT piece on SlateScott that mostly just called him a weird little guy has nonetheless created a festering psychic wound that oozes to this day. Here manifests as an interview with the author on LW. See also: discussion on reddit.

My favorite section, talking about how people are mad that be brought up Scott's notorious race stuff™️:

CM: That's great. That's a valid position. There are other valid positions where people say, we need to not go so close to that, because it's dangerous and there's a slippery slope. The irony of this whole situation is that some people who feel that I should not have gone there, who think I should not explore the length and breadth of that situation, are the people who think you should always go there.

Hounding the president of Harvard out of a job because you think she's a DEI hire is one thing, but going after a Billionaire's wife? How dare these journalists! What big bullies.

Bonus downplaying of EA's faults. He of course phrases the Bostrom affair as someone being "accused" of sending a racist email, as if there were any question as to who sent it, or if it was racist. And acts like it's not just the cherry on top of a lifetime of Bostrom's work.

Utilitarian brainworms or one of the many very real instances of a homicidal parent going after their disabled child? I can't decide, but it's a depressing read.

May end up on SRD, but you read it here first.

Someone posted this on ssc with a warning about talking to cops, but really just marvel at what's going on here.

Aaronson manages to turn a story where he is briefly arrested for a theft (which he did commit on video!) into paragraphs and paragraphs of indulging in his persecution fantasies.

Zero empathy on display for the people he stole from, the people just doing their jobs, or reflection on the fact that it wasn't a simple little mistake anyone could make but rather... a fairly weird move? Do people usually put change in cups?
