We get so caught up in framing plurality as a weakness and a struggle...

Hey, , what about your plurality brings you joy or enhances your life?

What if most voters in the world want to be subjected to authoritarianism, debasement, patriarchy and racism? Forget the politicians and the press for a moment—what if this is what most voters actually want?

How do the rest of us live inside of this reality?

The question to ask, if the answer is clearly not electoral politics, is what can we do to make the world a better place.

Don't let this suck you towards nihilism. As much as it got harder, the need for you to be there trying to make the world a better place has never been greater.

We've been rewatching Star Wars sporadically en route to episode IX the past few weeks. We need to pick up the pace (we're on TESB, which can't be rushed), but I had some thoughts on the prequels, which I hadn't revisited in a decade or so.

So much so I'm thinking of engaging in ethics in my own work/interests much more seriously. There are wonderful scholars doing great work in this regard already, but opportunities for intervention are not exhausted.

So NeurIPS sounds pretty, uh, problematic.

Loving all these people in my mentions telling me that a machine learning system which creates a face out of a voice isn't transphobic.

You can't intuit gender (or sex for that matter) from a voice. Full stop.

What is this hot garbage, ? "Facial Reconstruction from Voice using Generative Adversarial Networks" in which the authors generate faces from voice.

Computer scientists and machine learning people, please stop this awful transphobic shit.

Might be a good time to re-read Stuart Hall's "Thatcherism - a new stage?" to understand how Thatcherism paved the way for this week's Tories win.

This has allowed persuasive voices to push the idea that critical thinking, problem-solving and creativity cannot be taught under the banner of “this is what the science says” with CLT providing the scientific authority. 18/
