There isn't a lot that gives this old man hope these days, but this does. More of this, please.

There's more data than ever to work with, and someone will do the work. The key is whether the work is done for good or for other reasons. When we project the impact of AI on this, it starts to look like a first past the post winner take all situation, at least for long enough that the impact will be exponential for the good or for the bad.

Godspeed. I hate interesting times.

Addendum: It has come to my attention that the author of this proposal, Carlos Hoyt, has a working relationship with two individuals I highly respect. Those would be Greg Thomas and Sheena Mason. The proposal's update with editorial on 'reparations' has been removed, and thus my prior objection. I urge you to sign the petition at Change.org (https://bit.ly/3SOz5FS).

I find your substack interesting and “off the beaten path”. I’m not a data person or a numbers gal, but I appreciated reading this. Thanks!
