There have been so many twists and turns in the #OpenAI melodrama! But here's one that I definitely didn't have on my Bing-o card: #Microsoft tacitly admitted that no one doing serious engineering wants to use their terrible software. According to "The Biggest Winner in the OpenAI Fiasco" from #wsj:

"Microsoft prepared to give those [OpenAI] engineers everything they needed to continue their work: a floor in LinkedIn’s offices, plentiful cloud-computing resources, #Apple laptops. The trillion-dollar company’s employees assured their potential colleagues that they wouldn’t even have to use Microsoft’s workplace-communications app #Teams."

How a Philosophy Split Silicon Valley, by Robert McMillan and Deepa Seetharaman made the front page of the print (Dallas, Tx) version. It is a brilliant article - the kind the industry gives awards for.

This came across my newsfeed just now and I quote from the Wall Street Journal:

"Israel-Hamas War Puts Palestinians Back on Arab World's Agenda

Israel’s fierce response to Hamas’s cross-border assault has reinvigorated support for Palestinians in the Arab world and stirred popular anger—not just at Israel and the U.S., but also at Arab governments. #press "

^^ This presents an argument that Hamas already won the war. The main Hamas objective was to put the kibosh on the Abraham Accord, which caused Arab states to basically throw Palestine under the bus.

Anybody throwing Palestine under the bus is gonna need a bigger bus.

The #WSJ article about the #Writers Strike leaves me to infer that writers will get more money but there will be fewer writers, and jobs, thereby preserving high incomes for the studio execs at the expense of writers and consumers. That places striking writers alongside execs in the same little club of people who are out to do what is best for them. Programming descreases. Number employed as writers decreases. Execs keep their money.

But once the inflation hawks started going on national TV, holding flashlights under their chins and intoning "Inflaaaaaaaation," all that died.

A year later, even the *#WSJ* has to admit "Businesses are using a rare opportunity to boost their profit margins":

@georgetakei I'm not saying the #WSJ is a ridiculous scumbag. But had it been less busy blaring out its anti-progessive agenda, it might have had a chance to run a real investigative story on the instability of #SVB's finances before the bank collapsed.

@selfagency @dictvm "[…] has stabilized itself financially and recently attracted new deals. #Shohat didn’t specify how many customers #NSO Group currently has but said it was around a few dozen"
…imagine how horrible these dozens of "customers" are. #WSJ continues to be a mockery of journalistic integrity, especially around #Israel.

Can someone please find out who was responsible at WSJ for writing that headline with “Are There Too Many Asians?” People have to be held accountable for these stupid stunts.
