apropos of nothing: i’m at a small writing/fantasy convention and the neurodivergent stickers i brought are a hit.

mental note to bring more as well as more types next year.

got my tinfoil hat on this morning, because I’m thinkin:

-msft normalizes AI with aggressive push everywhere, uses it to legitimize more user data capture
-bad actors adopt AI in significant ways, security threats amplify due to microsecond reproducibility and iteration
-msft security “solutions” and the user data capture they represent constitute massive profits
-msft also drastically increases required user data capture on regular products “to be a good citizen given these new threats”

of course the funnier part of this will be when OpenAI uses Msft’s money to build a competitor AI security product, though it will be so small fry that Msft’s feigned insult will be pretty transparent.

The Belonging Kind by John Shirley and William Gibson

(I'm rereading Burning Chrome after about two decades and loving it as much as the very first time.)

I never realized it until adulthood but William Gibson’s writing spoke revelations to me partly because of how sensory-rich it is, and my autistic ass picked up on that 25+ years before I knew I was autistic.

At a small convention that’s also become an annual hangout for most of my friends and feeling the love. <3

ya ever wonder if, being a powerful wizard, Gandalf kept the Shire as pets and bringing them smokeweed was like getting hobbits all fucked up on catnip?

Does anyone else ever get really tempted, the night before an early flight, to unpack, change, and repack all your gear for no good reason?

Just me?

just saw a job opening a the Pokemon company and frankly if they don't end hiring processes with "I CHOOSE YOU!" it's a hell of a missed opportunity.

One of the hazards of my self-appointed job is that sometimes I read headlines that nobody should be reading before 6am and my entire operating system crashes.

I have to sit here for a minute and bang the side of my head with the heel of my hand before I reboot.

@researchbuzz you’d think, if anything, they’d end up with even more of an axe to grind
