Allow me to comment on the lead image for this show:

Hilton's syllogisms are telling. "I know nothing about X, so when putative X expert speaks about X, I take seriously what putative X expert says." Lots of folks respond this way, but obviously it's fallacy, and I don't think pointing out the fallacy is Hilton's point. He concludes in reliance on his own expertise. But surely Musk isn't the only CEO who says "the stupidest shit" about the object of the CEO's respective industry? CEOs aren't expected to know much or anything about the substance of the product their business produces. The guy who runs Coca Cola has a degree in electrical engineering.

I get the point of the mastodon post, but frankly I think these kinds of attempted take-downs are silly and unproductive.

IMHO Taibbi is simply too obsessively contrarian, like Irwin. He’s not as interested in having an opinion as he is in driving outrage. And this social media era has helped him a lot — now outrage drives clicks, so his approach now works.

And if I recall correctly, he wrote a lot for the NY Press in the 90s. People who were big in the 90s are often much more obsessed with transgression as comedy and/or freedom than younger people are. It’s a middle-aged obsession for people who haven’t moved on from punch-down outrage comedy etc.

I've never used Twitter. 280 character limit? Heck, there's less limitation within the confines of this Accu-Playlist medium. Granted, it's not going to reach as many people, by any means, but at least there's enough space, provided you don't bore your readers to tears, to get a coherent, well thought out, cohesive idea across. And, Facebook is another form of panopticism, just with added degrees of echo chamber elements.

That would be much more his crowd. I don't think he understands social platforms, he is an awful poster and doesn't get what makes it work.

I can envision this Accu-Playlist being applied to Netflix or sports or other group-viewing arenas and forums. I think Ken touched upon this in his Auricle presentation in the past. It's true thought.

Sometimes I feel like the only person who hated Snow Crash.

True, queems. Because legs are what sex happens near, and that's not Metaverse material.

I've never understood the concept of an inflated ego, I guess because I don't have one. If I made a shite-ton of money, I'd sell the biz and never leave the house. Except maybe to play golf.

I am troubled by this particular show. I don't mind advocacy, but I sense little interest in the actual ramifications of technology. We need information about the technology, not opinions.
