Excellent post by @molly0xfff on "AI". One of many gems:

"But I find one common thread among the things AI tools are particularly suited to doing: do we even want to be doing these things? If all you want out of a meeting is the AI-generated summary, maybe that meeting could've been an email. If you're using AI to write your emails, and your recipient is using AI to read them, could you maybe cut out the whole thing entirely?"

This is a useful reference to have whenever someone tries to conflate criticising Israel with antisemitism. The long and impressive list of Jewish signers carries weight.

"We are Jewish writers, artists, and activists who wish to disavow the widespread narrative that any criticism of Israel is inherently antisemitic."

@ashwinvis Such transition is economic activity that shows in GDP, yes. But in order for it to be a transition and not an addition, you also have to stop harmful activity which will lower GDP.

Now it is possible that during such transition, if it's fast enough, GDP can still grow. I'm not opposed to that.

But what are your plans after the transition? Where does the new ecological and socially just GDP growth come from?
