@Misosoppa @Dec_vs_Japan_ That’s a feature not a bug. Moving from specialized symbols (e.g. kanji) to more universal symbols (e.g. hiragana) is similar to using universal objects (movable type/letterpress) instead of specialized objects (e.g. hand-copied illuminated manuscripts). Also, making it easier…

@Dec_vs_Japan_ Seems fair to me, it’s not my fault Japan has four sets of tens of thousands of characters (incl romaji) that symbolize different things in different contexts. The Phoenicians more-or-less solved this problem about 3,600 years ago.

Couldn't we use this to control the weather:

I catch myself about to say “it’s hard to explain,” or “it’s complicated,” sometimes. Dude. Give it a shot. I’ve found that it’s funny if I just try and it usually reveals it’s not actually that complicated or difficult. 😆

@NathanpmYoung Strongly disagree, change the word “averting” to “controlling” and I’ll be a strongly agree. We should be proactively changing the climate, that’s good.

@jonclemonsjp The train museum is nice, and the park next to it. Also an aquarium there, I think. That said, just walking by the river and/or the nearby shopping arcades is great, too.

I used to work in public (and private) schools in Japan, and can attest: you can work with children all day in an “educational environment” and still be far removed from them.

@rveulacia @BennyChugg Call me when the conversation stops using the words “artificial”, “general” and “intelligence.”

@reasonisfun @TCSparents Here's a thought: Over-attentive parenting is coercive parenting. The more children you have, the less coercive you *can* be (well, unless you hire a bunch of nannys and/or create nanny bots to fill in for you). "Attention" is overrated. It almost has a military vibe to it. Not…

@DKedmey 4. Abstractions are created/re-created each time they are accessed. 5. No abstraction is ever exactly the same.

Wow, refactoring/updating. It's going to be able to refactor a whole app that was written in classes to components in functions in seconds, isn't it? Need to try this for Ruby, too.

@codybaldwin @reasonisfun True. But what I think he meant by that is that once we can program a mind, if it does no…

@reasonisfun @SubsetTopology Interesting! I'm currently reading "The Courage to be Disliked," and early on there's a chapter titled "Trauma doesn't exist". Not sure if I agree entirely, but the point is that trauma is *created*—and it's about problem avoidance, not solving. Maybe suffering is the same?

@rveulacia @reasonisfun 😄The most interesting thing to me about putting minds in boxes is that minds can’t end at boxes. I’m reminded of King Louis’ talking horse parable, too. It was like an beautiful chess match to hear David avoid referring to this as “creativity” when pressed.

I gave up on manually looking up kanji (by particle, relation, deconstruction, text from photo), and after several years of mulling, finally bought a Paperwhite. Despite the initially frustrating lag, which I’m already used to now? it’s leaps and bounds easier! 🤩

@reasonisfun Podcast #2 is 🔥so far once again. This is probably my favorite so far specifically because David is explaining how he got to where he is, and it is awesome. (Guessing consciousness is related to wave function collapse). Anyway, a thought I want to jot down (related…
