Macro recording is a forgotten magic tool. It used to be included as a feature in many programs and operating systems. It’s an amazingly simple and logical use of a computer: What is a computer good for? To automate tasks. So, you record human behavior and play it back 1000x for 1000x machine effort for 1x human effort. But that feature has gotten stripped away out of so many places. Hard to find. Arcane. We’ve collectively forgotten. But pair up macro recording with the more subtle changes that AI can make – a little natural shakiness here and there, variations of interests in nearby categories and you’ve just created a brand new human – or 1000 humans or a million.
