Lizard King: AI foolishness versus Argentinian peculiarityNovember 24, 2023
OpenAI did what most boards only dream of and successfully drove both their investors and employees up the wall with the one move of ousting their CEO.
Usually, it is one or the other, and things unsurprisingly didn’t go as planned; they got him fired but were immediately hired by their biggest investor at Microsoft; you’ve got to give them credit, though – they’ve got some moxie!
He did come back with some begging and a few fired attempters of the would-be coup, but you miss all the shots you don’t take, though the stakes are a little higher than when I use that mantra after missing another lazy long three in a rec league basketball game that I’ve never made before.
The Argentines might be making their own disastrous decision by electing their new leader, who talks to Ayn Rand’s ghost and relies on his dead dog’s advice through multiple cloned personalities. But if we’re all headed for trouble anyway, we might as well have some fun with it, and who knows, maybe Conan the English Mastiff has some sage counsel to offer years after his passing.
Though it’s been a spotty history for the four-legged advising influential world leaders, Incitatus, the horse, was almost made consul by Caligula, and he’s not a man you want to be compared to.
Leave the dogs to do dog things like biting Secret Service operatives and leave lizard things like puppeteering world governments to the lizard people, though now I’m worried Joe Biden’s wayward pooch might be adept at sniffing us out.
On a brighter note, it’s great to see Akubra under new ownership by the Forrests and Andrew and Nicola getting along well enough to buy out the iconic hat-maker. That’s much better than the contentious family feud unfolding in Perth’s Supreme Court.
And a big win for Aussie cricket on Indian soil was pretty damn sweet. As Pat Cummins said, nothing beats the feeling of shutting down a big crowd in sports; even if I’m more used to causing the kind of silence that gets me kicked out, all good things must come to an end. The bad ones, too; on that note, I’m out!
