if you make a joke on Mastodon, no matter WHAT the content is, after 50+ boosts people will appear in the replies that take it completely at literal face value.

you could post "a man walks into a bar, says ouch!" and if it receives 50+ boosts, then you will begin seeing replies like "THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN STEEL BAR PLACEMENT IS DEREGULATED BY PROFIT DRIVEN CROOKS!"

this theory is commonly known as Eugen's Gambit. and i love it.

I doubt its because age is incompetent in tech. Although its probably what most people would conclude. Disney made the same move about a decade ago. I am wiling to bet its the cost of benefits. Rather pay a youngster minimum wage then a vet prime wages. Then comes the cost of retirement.

I recommend young guns to require long long term contracts from their employers. Dont be afraid and site these events as a concern. Because thats the future that is awaiting for them.

re autopilot: if it depends on recognizing clear lane markings 100% of the time, it's going to lose outside of the photogenic city centers the video was filmed in.

I'd like to see the autopilot successfully navigate a hastily-built construction zone, or a "road" with very little in the way of road markings, or even deal with more than one style of traffic light. Those Russian car crash videos on YouTube should be required viewing for whoever's working on this.

My problem with management and executives is that they never wanna hear something sucks or is stupid, even when it is.

Which is funny b/c shareholders and chairpersons typically love the truth.
