For the last time, you think you want flying cars, but you really don’t. You will never see the sky again. Idiots and/or hacked/BSOD’d computers will crash into your house. The smell will be unreal. You want a flying car. You do not want OTHER PEOPLE to have flying cars.

I admit that I am especially critical of Academia because as "truth generator" for the liberal society they really need to do better. As much as there are issues with job security etc. academia and its members hold a lot of social capital and therefore power. Their actions matter

It's really not about the PhD work but the organization. It says something about you as an organization if Facebook funds your "ethics" work for example. I'm just tired by people doing potentially valuable PhD work legitimizing institutions that (by taking money) legitimize FB

Perhaps this is a very unpopular opinion but I think 538 political analysis and Nate Silver are the symptom of a sickness and you should ignore / block them ted talk etc goodnight

The nexus between technology scholarship, vast tranches of bizarrely sourced money, the hype about tech “labs,” what university directors need to do to raise money, misogyny and abuse, and bizzare Silicon Valley pseudoscience and eugenics, is a story dying to be written.

one more comment on : remember that he chose to meet with and take money from in 2013--five years AFTER Epstein plead guilty to procuring an underage girl for prostitution. and kept quiet about it until Epstein killed himself.
