Just like film on Netflix it serves to make people directly aware of how social media might impact their personal life.

Been trying to say it, the unattributed message model (imageboards w/ moderation) is the future.

@humanetech Am I the only one who finds it sort of hilarious that Netflix produced a documentary about Big Tech tracking and recommendation algorithms, when they participate in the same practices?

@jcgruenhage no you're not, ha ha. There is money to be earned, I guess, and if it can be combined with a good dose of ethics washing, all the better.

@humanetech @tobi This is related to what I've been saying recently about capitalism being a maximizer (in the AI safety sense).

It says "Privacy is the right to be imperfect". This is because a maximizer system strives for maximum perfection in the system, and thus imperfection is unacceptable. Unfortunately, what is being maximized is not in alignment with human values.

The capitalist system isn't a general AI, it's just that AI safety is widely applicable.
