There are plenty of problems in the world I can, and do, obsess about and lose sleep over. But few with the frequency with which I lament that it's 2023 and no company can yet manufacture a toaster that toasts evenly.
Posts made on other sites, such as Mastodon.
This feels like a weird approach. Or I guess I don't understand the need to say "I'm not listening to you" or whatever this means. Why not just post on a blog rather than a social app?
> Ya'll are great but if I wanted to get notifications constantly I'd still be on Twitter, so I'm muting this thread.
I wonder what it will take to get some of the communities I'm most interested in, and sometimes a part of, to really move from the birdsite? It's not happening yet and the waning of the Mastodon wave is already happening. Chickens, eggs, etc.
As Nick Cave said about ChatGPT:
“I understand that ChatGPT is in its infancy but perhaps that is the emerging horror of AI – that it will forever be in its infancy..." (from https://www.theguardian.com/music/2023/jan/17/this-song-sucks-nick-cave-responds-to-chatgpt-song-written-in-style-of-nick-cave)
The breathlessness and mini-panics about ChatGPT are astonishing. Have people been asleep for the last...10 years? The only surprising thing is that it didn't emerge a few years ago. That and the dismissive smugness...so many act as if a technology that is essentially a toddler is at the end of its evolution. The really wild stuff is yet to come.
