WHAT PEOPLE THINK ETHICAL ISSUES IN AI ARE: wow.... we're creating... new life........

WHAT ETHICAL ISSUES IN AI ACTUALLY ARE: techbros worshiping the almighty algorithm, not caring to look at what bad patterns the machines are picking up (racism, sexism, etc) and how to avert them, and overreliance on neural networks meaning that said algorithms are treated as magical black boxes where nobody wants to (or can, really) point out exactly how the equation works (and why it may be faulty)

Reminder: "oh, we don't talk about money" / "we don't really compare salaries here" / etc. is literal capitalist propaganda designed to keep you from recognizing the true value of your labor.

Insist on a frank discussion of the compensation you and those around you receive for your time and effort.

its really weird how fedilab refused to block gab instances and is now implementing features to evade client blocks that were put in place as a result of this decision. it's almost like there is some kind of sympathizing going on here

I have a special admiration for FOSS devs of color cause they're doing such great work in a community where edgy white libertarians whose social commentary of choice is South Park and like to act like they've never ever heard of racism are overrepresented

Fuck Silicon Valley.
Fuck the startup culture.
Fuck capitalism.
