♡ friend!!! you've been working so hard!!! you deserve a definite quantity of some article.

anyway this all came to me in the shower and I had to type it down how has everyone else's day been going

like this isn't A Big Political Statement or anything i just find it really really interesting. i guess it ties into personas/masks too—obviously most FBI agents are integrated into society SOMEHOW. They don't live in complete isolation like a monastic order or something. But they have a "FBI Agent" persona that they use to do stuff like order surveillance and write malware or whatever, and that persona has no *real* social connections, just some abstract and nebulous sense of obligation.

the inherent premise of this joke rests on the self-evident absurdity of applying normal social expectations to government surveillance. But why is that absurd? If the FBI agent watching me through my webcam can't abide by the normal ties that make up society, how can they ever be expected to be just or fair? we talk a lot about the extrajudiciality of the IC but we don't ever talk about the extra-sociality and that's really interesting to me—even above and beyond any political stmt

@Gargron even more when #AI algorithms are crafted by a minority of probably white-male completely out of touch with reality, what could go wrong ?

I don't understand people who think that self-improving artificial intelligence will solve all of humanity's problems. We've already got self-improving natural intelligence and all it does is shitpost and be depressed
