Are we really still buying into this lie about productivity? The same promises were made about the PC, laptop, smart phone & now #AI. It should be clear that these tools won't liberate anyone without changes to the underlying social, economic, & political systems they operate in.

Maybe unsurprising from the guy behind the VC-funded, eyeball-scanning, cryptocurrency-backed digital ID scheme beta tested on people in the global south. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-06-29/sam-altman-s-worldcoin-will-give-free-crypto-for-eyeball-scans

these tools will help us be more productive (can't wait to spend less time doing email!), healthier (AI medical advisors for people who can’t afford care), smarter (students using ChatGPT to learn), and more entertained (AI memes lolol).
