Escape from the Body Farm by Rick Searle

One of the lesser noted negative consequences of having a tabloid showman for a president is the way the chaos and scandal around him has managed to suck up all the air in the room. Deep social and political problems that would have once made the front page, sat on top of the newsfeed, or been covered in depth by TV news, have been relegated to the dustbin of our increasingly monetized attention. And because so few of the public know about these issues their future remains in the hands of interested parties unlikely to give more than a perfu...

Deep(ly) Unsettling: The ubiquitous, unspoken business model of AI-induced mental illness by Marcelo Rinesi

“The junk merchant,” wrote William S. Burroughs, “doesn’t sell his product to the consumer, he sells the consumer to his product. He does not improve and simplify his merchandise. He degrades and simplifies the client.” He might as well have been describing the commercial, AI-mediated, social-network-driven internet.

Three Anthopocenes by Rick Searle

A few weeks back I read an interesting essay by Jedediah Purdy on Aeon written in the halcyon days of 2015. An article which, given the news, captured something essential and got me a little depressed. Within the space of the last three weeks hurricanes of almost unprecedented magnitude slammed into Houston, then, Florida, then Puerto Rico. All were bad, but the last looked something like something straight out of a Hollywood apocalyptic. It wasn’t just the scale of the storm that hit it which made the situation in Puerto Rico so much more...

Summary of Jaron Lanier’s “Who Owns the Future?” by John G. Messerly

Jaron Lanier‘s recent book, Who Owns the Future? discusses the role that technology plays in both eliminating job and increasing income inequality. Early in that book, Lanier quotes from Aristotle’s Politics: “If every instrument could accomplish its own work … if … the shuttle would weave and the plectrum touch the lyre without a hand to guide them, chief workmen would not want servants, nor masters slaves.”

New, Easy Experiments for testing the Simulation Hypothesis by Eliott Edge

In terms of the major models in physics and cosmology, the simulation hypothesis, digital mechanics, and computation-based interpretations have endured and indeed grown in popularity over the last few decades, making them major contenders to the scientific dialogue.  Why simulation and computation make for such powerful analogies is that they offer a useful framework for approaching the paradoxes found throughout quantum mechanics.  If quantum phenomena behave frequently as if spacetime is totally moot, that would make sense if our...

Onward to a Democratic Socialist Automated Neutropia by B. J. Murphy

During a talk at the CIO Network, techno-philanthropist and entrepreneur Peter H. Diamandis said, “I’m sort of a libertarian capitalist at heart, but we’re heading towards a future of socialism.” And he’s not wrong. Capitalism might’ve helped bring about advanced technological innovations over the decades, but as a result, the socio-economic system is providing the very tools needed to eventually replace it as a whole.
