I got to see some of the theories and speculations we learned actually become reality.

I think, generally, we fear things that are bigger than us.
The Internet is bigger than any one of us.
The weather is bigger than any one of us.
The ocean is bigger – being lost in a ship in the middle of the ocean without communication or proper navigation would be frightening.

In each of them, there are processes that we don’t have under our control. They’re complicated and powerful processes that could result in death or wrecking all that we know.

I’m not any more qualified to speak of things like AI – i just happened to “be there” when it was more primitive and I got to see some of the theories and speculations we learned actually become reality.

Yet, I never finished college. 1.5 yrs. But I got exposure. Early Internet too. But ‘being there’ doesn’t make me any more qualified… just, I dunno, not very fearful of the capabilities of AI.

Even a “rogue scientist” or something like that who unleashes a “something” would get curtailed by society not long after the monster was unleashed. [can you say, “Dr Frankenstein and the villagers with Pitchforks”?

I don’t want to be a villager with a pitchfork. I want to support the doctor in his work. Even if the first few alpha and beta tests are failures, eventually it’ll lead to a success.
