Alright, it’s Saturday afternoon, and the sun has made an appearance, and I spent the day moving furniture, and I have to spend the evening helping out with a Bingo night, so cut me a little slack, here. I couldn’t help but chuckle (Chortle? Guffaw?) at this Ted Nesi tweet:
@GinaRaimondo said after Musk talk she’s less concerned on AI as civilizational threat + more on how many more jobs will soon be automated.
Well, gee, governor, you’d better get right on ushering in minimum wage increases and progressives’ mandatory paid time off legislation! That’ll hold back the tide of automation for sure!
N.B.: If you didn’t catch the sarcasm in the previous paragraph, watch this:
And that’s before we get to the fact that one of Governor Raimondo’s corporate-crony taxpayer giveaways was to GE Digital, which forces Rhode Islanders to subsidize efforts to automate their jobs.
