So what you're saying is that millennials killed red lobster? /s

What if time travel requires an anchor so you can't go backwards before the time it was invented?

Do you know what pattern matching is great for? Finding commonly cited patterns in long debug log messages. LLMs are great for brainstorming problem solving. They're basically word granularity search engines, so they're great for looking things up are more niche knowledge that document search engines fail on. If the thing you're trying to look up doesn't exist, it will make shit up so you need to cross reference everything, but it's still incredibly helpful. Pattern matching is also great for boilerplate. I use the codium extension and it comes up with auto complete suggestions that don't have much logic, but save a good amount of key strokes.

I didn't think the foundational tech of LLMs are going to get substantially better, but we will develop programming patterns that make them more robust and reliable.

That's a hot take I'd expect to hear from a 12 year old.

I tried out ollama. It was trivially easy to set up.

Stable diffusion is a bit more work, but any power user should be able to figure it out.

It can potentially allow 1 worker to do the job of 10. For 9 of those workers, they have been replaced. I don't think they will care that much for the nuance that they technically weren't replaced by AI, but by 1 co-worker who is using AI to be more efficient.

That doesn't necessarily mean that we won't have enough jobs any more, because when in human history have we ever become more efficient and said "ok, good enough, let's just coast now"? We will just increase the ambition and scope of what we will build, which will require more workers working more efficiently.

But that still really sucks because it's not going to be the same exact jobs and it will require re-training. These disruptions are becoming more frequent in human history and it is exhausting.

We still need to spread these gains so we can all do less and also help those whose lives have been disrupted. Unfortunately that doesn't come for free. When workers got the 40 hour work week it was taken by force.

You can ask it to make an image of a man made of pizza. That doesn't mean it was trained on images of that.

Wait, that's actually a great font

Don't forget leftists that actually share all the same views but describe them in slightly different ways.

Most of the people I see that wear masks are old ladies trying to avoid getting sick. How fucking pathetic do they have to be to be so afraid of the world that they want to ban immune compromised people from wearing a mask?

The problem is that they become a buzz word for at scale companies that need them because they have huge complex architects, but then non at scale companies blindly follow the hype when they were created out of necessity for giant tech stacks that are a totally different use case.

I've been using Chromecasts and it's gotten so slow and buggy. I was trying to cast from VLC on my phone to it and I had a ton of trouble getting it to show up and connect and after I finished streaming from my phone I tried to switch to the YouTube app and it just kept on crashing.

It's 2024, I'm tired of dealing with shitty tv streaming experiences. I want something completely uncompromising. I want a silky smooth experience and I don't want it to randomly break on my.

I'm thinking about shelling out for a shield TV, but I'd rather have control over my device since I don't want to deal with the manufacturers fucking around with my device after the fact.

I'd love to be able to set up a raspberry pi for this, but would I be able to get a seamless experience? I don't mind doing extra up front work to get it set up, but I don't want it to be an ongoing maintenance thing, and I'd like it to work with Chromecast so it's easy to stream to from a variety of devices.

Can I actually pull that off with a raspberry pi or should I go with the shield TV?
