@shriekingmarxist imagine thinking that being a drone operator that delivers treats to the scions of privilege is a fulfilling job

@shriekingmarxist I live near Berkeley and now I really want to design some stickers I can slap on these little bastards. Like, a fake warning label that reads: ATTENTION: I AM BEING OPERATED BY AN EXPLOITED WORKER or something
an article "kiwibot, rolling robots that deliver burritos and smoothies [...] are actually operated by remote workers in Columbia who make 2$ an hour"
a scooby doo character unmasking a character named "A.I.", but when the mask is off it reveals "exploited developing world workers"
@shriekingmarxist lol A.I. is the new Big Data
@shriekingmarxist https://www.sfchronicle.com/business/article/Kiwibots-win-fans-at-UC-Berkeley-as-they-deliver-13895867.php this sounded just cartoonishly evil but yeah it's real..also “It’s a really good value, cool and convenient,” he said. “You don’t have to run out right away (as with a human courier), it’s happy to wait until you come. And you don’t have to tip.” -Roland Saekow, who seems like a charming guy
@shriekingmarxist Capitalism is a disease
