🤖 AI Reads (Big Week!)
Notes: The venerable iA on AI is thought-provoking, albeit alarmist.
Notes: The dataset used to train the models, MusicCaps, is more valuable than the model and is being publicly released.
Notes: Hacker houses are back in SF!
Notes: IMHO, Getty should win this lawsuit.
🎨 Culture Reads - Focusing on “Knolling”
As an engineering-oriented human, I could never get on board with much of the minimalism movement - resilience and redundancy were hammered into me during my formative years. The opportunity cost of not having the right tool to do a job is too high.
The extreme minimalism aesthetic also seems wasteful - someone should correct me if I am wrong. If you need a hammer, do you buy a new one a year and get rid of it during the purges? Unfortunately, tool libraries are not as common as I would like. I would have at least supported the idea that you don't need to own a hammer if you can borrow one easily.
“Knolling” aligns more with my general philosophy: buy high quality once, hold onto it for life, and keep it organized - right angles are 🔥.
However, Marie Kondo did introduce me to a whole new of folding and sorting clothes that I like.
