Stubsack: weekly thread for sneers not worth an entire post, week ending Sunday 28 July 2024
  • Like the couch story, this is real.

    (No but for real, how would we know? Doubt any of us work at twitter and if we did we prob would be in no position to talk, would not be surprised if it was, and considering they are going after the information with a weird agressiveness (I saw the 'stay informed' thing myself). I think this has a high likelihood of not being false.

    E: More things I cannot confirm But very much lol if okta accidentally exposed this information (which makes me more doubtful it is true), first crowdstrike now okta jesus. (Don't get me wrong, this should be impossible unless they really fucked up some things, im just lolling on the possibility that it is true, not saying it is)

    E2: fake according to a former employee

  • He also lies about his age.

    I also knew somebody who did that, but it was done as a joke, he obv picked an age much much younger and everybody new he was older, it was just a funny joke. (With a small layer of disliking getting older, which is understandable) From the way this is written, it seems to me this isn't like that at all.

  • This is the kind of take a libertarian makes, and then goes 'well nobody debates me on this so my logic is solid'. While he isn't noticing that people are just avoiding the conversation all together, as nobody wants to roll in that mud with him.

    The UR example of these kinds of bad takes is the book "Defending the Undefendable", a dumb book I have ranted about before.

  • iirc Crowdstrike does use regular ML for security, or at least a lot of security companies, I think they might have talked about it on the risky business podcast, so you might want to look at their (many iirc) crowdstrike sponsored parts. No episode directly springs to mind however.

  • Interview with a former Effective Vampire^M Altruist.

    The interview itself

    Got the interview via Dr. Émile P. Torres on twitter

    Somebody else sneered: 'Makings of some fantastic sitcom skits here.

    "No, I can't wash the skidmarks out of my knickers, love. I'm too busy getting some incredibly high EV worrying done about the Basilisk. Can't you wash them?"

    Eliezer complements Musk, Musk negs Eliezer

    Some light sneerclub content in these dark times.

    Eliezer complements Musk on the creation of community notes. (A project which predates the takeover of twitter by a couple of years (see the join date: https://twitter.com/CommunityNotes )).

    In reaction Musk admits he never read HPMOR and he suggests a watered down Turing test involving HPMOR.

    Eliezer invents HPMOR wireheads in reaction to this.
