New instance, new introduction. Hello, I am Adam from Ottawa Canada. I am a totally blind man, identifying as he/him.
My primary interests are technology and music. I was a former professional drummer, playing the bar stages of Ottawa and the ocasional out-of-town show.
I've always been rhythmical, annoying the heck out of my parents at the tendor age of four on up banging on pots, pans, spoons, and whatever else I could get my grubby little hands on.
I got my first drum kit when I was 12, back in 1999. I got a couple of upgrades over the years, and then switched to electronic kits in 2007 when I managed to save and purchase a Roland TD-12 kit with my own money. That was like buying a car for me, LOL.
I was professionally active from 2007 until 2019.
Some hearing issues with extended loudness causing anxiety and unease started my issues with playing live shows, and then COVID19 really finished that career.

I've been interested in technology from a young age as well, receiving my first electronic note taker for the blind, a Blazie Engineering Braille Lite in 1996 at the age of 9.
I then got my first computer in the summer of 1998, learned DOS, then eventually Windows 3.1, 95, and on up.
I've had many, many, many computers and other technological devices since those days, and I have done any serious compute work in Linux, where in I am mostly referring to running servers, hosting things, and distributed compute projects.
Professionally, I am currently a systems/server administrator, backend web developer, database administrator, and infrastructure administrator.
Other interests include animals, documentaries, listening to most kinds of music, having deep intellectual conversations, and pondering the meaning of life.

I'm not a tech person, but my gut feeling is that all the grandiose promises big tech is making about the potential of AI is a lie, and we the general public may pay the price.

This video excellently articulates the doubts about AI many of us have - and shares reasons why we are right to be skeptical

Am I the only one skeptical about modern developers focusing so much on making AI look and sound like humans? Is it god’s syndrome “create them to reflect their image” kind of thing? Because what I need from AI as an individual is do the mundane tasks and be recognizable. I don’t need it to be able to impersonate a virtual friend or anything.

Dear tech blogs. Please stop.
These are massive trillion+ dollar megacorporations.
There’s no “war”, no need to choose sides. No flame wars to be had to take more of our money.
These are appliances to get stuff done or enjoy for fun.
Period.

The pre-eminent philosopher (and recently deceased) Daniel Dennett stated recently that "Large Language Models are the most dangerous technology ever developed, capable of leading to the collapse of not just but of ... This technology can flood the world with manipulative fake people ... Who controls your attention, controls you. We are in danger of losing our free will and being turned into puppets."

Do you agree with Dennett?

    If you design a system such that you cannot differentiate people from corporations and bots and that’s your defense for calling all of them “users”, you’ve designed a system that conflates people – who are mortal, have feelings, can feel pain and be hurt and who have human rights that must be protected – with the very entities that oftentimes exist to exploit them.

    Design for people. Call them people. All else is secondary.
