He pasado el finde en Madrid porque el sábado tuvimos la asamblea de ACE Traductores y, después, reunión de junta (que empezamos tardísimo por culpa de cierta socia que nos secuestró para tomar algo después de una comida que ya se había alargado considerablemente).
Fue mi primera asamblea y llevo mal lo de hablar en público, pero me sentí muy acogida y salí con mucha energía y ganas de seguir trabajando. 💪🏻

It was not enough for the GOP to bring a gun to a political fight: they also had to pay the referees to confiscate the knife Democrats brought.

Kevin Roose so desperately wants to live in the futures tech companies are selling that he’ll eagerly do their PR for them and buy into whatever illusions of intelligence they put in front of him so he can trick himself into believing they’ll actually be realized this time.

"Within a day of his ousting, Altman said he received 10 to 20 texts from presidents and prime ministers around the world. [...] He responded to the messages and thanked the leaders without feeling fazed."

I'm not sure getting so much support from world leaders is something I'd brag about. I interpret it as being an asset or a pawn to some really shady things they often do at the expense of human rights - things Altman's AI and crypto projects are surely enabling.

I'd be highly suspicious of all those presidents and prime ministers. What the hell are they doing commiserating one of the ickiest tech bros around?

“oh you’re a writer too? I write period romance about a simpler time”

“that’s nice I write cyberpunk about child soldiers”

“oh you must be into high tech stuff. I keep all my manuscripts on google docs, I love their AI integration”

“I use a text editor from 1978 and I’m prepared to shoot it if it tries anything”

Residents of 21 cities in Utah have access to some of the fastest, most competitively priced broadband in the US, at speeds up to 10gb/s and prices as low as $75/month. It's uncapped, and the connections are symmetrical: perfect for uploading and downloading. And it's all thanks to the government.
