re: snark at crypto and gpts 

So completely separate from all of the everything this evening, I realized something on this:

What is a middle manager? Well, someone like Michael Lopp would say: they help solve the quadratic communication problem of every engineer talking to each other engineer, taking it from O(n^2) to O(n). They also perform expected value calculations, which states that given the same game and odds infinitely run, a higher than 50% weighted average comes out ahead, and the better weighted average the better the decision.

What exactly is an LLM? Well, it's a system performing Bayesian-esque analysis on words, phrases, and image data, then running forward the most likely results.

It makes perfect sense why middle managers think this thing can replace humans, when it adequately articulates their lived experience as managers. And it's just attribution bias for that to go from "this is like talking to the people I talk to every day" to "this is like talking to everyone."

Fewer words: chatgpt talks like a manager, and manager types confuse that with being a person. Yikes, but it makes a funhouse mirror amount of sense.

There's a reason why the last gambit is always trying to knock everyone else down and force everyone to love them. They just can't get there, despite infinite wealth and resources.

It's... comforting in a way, but I wish they had just sought therapy and tried picking up a paintbrush instead?

snark at crypto and gpts 

All the last decade of fictitious internet money, putting databases and dumb apes on the blockchain, and confusing chatbots for human-level AI has taught me is:

Techbros and billionaires literally cannot even conceptualize what creativity is or what it means to be loved. Look what they need to mimic even a fraction of our power.

With a luxurious 20 minutes to go before the deadline, I finished the entire intended feature set of kistaro.itch.io/vacation in time for itch.io/jam/strawberry-jam-8 ! Now it has fish and, thanks to @pyrex, clouds. (And, as of last night's update, it has background music by @spacefinner!)

Give it a try! If you want to get hypnotized into being a pooltoy orca, that is.

Daily sketch #1 - Happiness

I decided to start doing daily sketches to practice things like expressions, etc., and share them here! It's also a nice opportunity for me to draw my OC ^-^
I hope I'll be able to continue it as long as possible!
Timelapses will be available on Ko-fi!

My inflatable orca TF hypnokink game beta for Pico-8 has been updated! Nothing massively exciting, just bugfixes -- the "press ctrl-C to complete copy" popups in the web version should stop and waiting a while at the title screen will no longer crash it. (oops)

It's apparently the 5th year anniversary of synths!

They're good beeps!

I keep saying I'll design one!

Maybe this is one? I don't know but I'm sure you can trust it!
