Announcing #AIDayOfAction on October 2.
We're calling for a law to block large corporations from getting copyrights for works like books, music, movies that contain significant AI-enabled elements.
This is the moment. Congress could stand up and ensure that the #AI revolution prioritizes working artists over even more exploitative concentration of wealth among tech and media billionaires.
Take action every day now through 10/2 at https://AIDayOfAction.com

We launched a Substack this week! We’re calling it Touch Grass because its central focus will be connecting digital issues to the real world. We're thinking about it as an idea laboratory where we can expand on things—like Amazon worker towns, health tech, and algorithmic music taste—that might not have full campaigns yet.
