    You say "something like this" but you don't really mean that. You mean "something shaped like me."
no, I didn’t much focus on “shape like me,” but rather on the ability to traverse through the world allowing AI to gather irl data. Just a chariot for data gathering was my thought.

We bought a new home and plan to do some renovations before moving in. I have my guitars and recording gear in there. Drum set and keyboard too. Today I visited and noticed a sliding glass door was completely shattered. Called the cops and they determined in was likely vandalism. Nothing was stolen. Either it was just meant to be mean/destructive or they were going to break in but got spooked. Either way, it sucks.

Should I be worried to go there at night? Should I get a shotgun? We put up plywood where the door was, installed motion lights and will install cameras too.

Just sucks. Fuck people. My heart hurts. Too much negativity in my world right now.

    They’re great at mimicry and bad at facts. Why? LLMs, like the octopus, have no access to real-world, embodied referents.
wouldn’t this change once the AI is embedded in something like this?

Today I drove the kids to school, lifted at 7:45am, played tennis at 8:45, had Krav at 10am and have been at my desk working since 11am and will do so until around 5. Then soccer game. Get to watch my first born play. I love it. Today has been a great day. Lots of big business wins in there today too. Feeling bullish even though the world is on fire.

Thanks for sharing. I too dig the lo-if quality. Def feels timeless. Like it could be a group of guys sitting around today. It also makes me want to write a song on the piano.

Edit: it has an Elton John feel and not just because of the piano but his voice when he holds a long note and trails off and some twang when he turns a phrase. Very EJ.

My father was in town visiting. We smoked weed and jammed for hours. He on harmonica and me on guitar. Was a lot of fun.

Been listening to The Band.

To narrow down the difference between what GPT writer vs. kleinbl00‘s writing as needing more fucks, is a gross simplification. I chose kb for a few reasons.

1. He has his own style/voice. You know it when you read it.

2. He is prolific. AI should be able to find a lot of references

3. He can deep dive into topics. I chose watches because there is likely a plethora of info he’s written here on the topic.

Where did GPT go wrong? I think it’s far too simple and straight forward. KB would use metaphor, real life anecdotes etc to make his point. Cursing? Sure but usually to better effect. I’m not convinced the AI has any idea of KB’s writing here. I was hoping it would have been more true to form. Bummer. AI fail.

The show sounds amazing. How cool to put something like that together. Inspiring

Got it. That would be akin to jinxing the mission by celebrating it too soon. Makes sense to me.

So you are not supposed to greet someone over a doorstep? How else do you do it?

thenewgreen  ·  25 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What superstitions do you have?

I see it the same way. I even knock louder and more forcefully given how grateful I am. For example when talking to my wife I might say regarding our son, “he seems to be behaving well in school this year and his grades are up.” -hard knock. Always two knocks too. Never just one.

Hope y’all get some good weather up there in Michigan, katakowsj. I’ll knock wood for that. Onward!

What is a mission patch?
