And in different words: "Arguably, the dominance of the psychological and hero/antihero narrative is also the reason we are having such a difficult time dealing with the current historic technology transition."

"Our inability to understand and tell sociological stories is one of the key reasons we’re struggling with how to respond to the historic technological transition we’re currently experiencing with digital technology and machine intelligence"

Yes!

"Hänen mukaansa yhtiö on sulkenut 2,8 miljardia valetiliä."

Olen törmännyt tähän lukuun aiemminkin mutta vieläkään se ei oikein mahdu päähäni. Pystyykö yksikään firma tällaiseen tehtävään, ja pitäisikö olla sellaisessa asemassa että pitäisi pystyä?

To an extent, Mastodon still suffers from early adopter syndrome. The most viable conversation revolve around the subjects that are of interest to the sort of people who are likely to be early adopters of new software — tech, FOSS/FLOSS, programming, etc. Other subjects have a harder time getting traction and attracting discussion. So if you have interests outside the early adopter set, one of the best things you can do for the health of the community is post about them often.

A Dutch 2010 study found anger to be motivating and to make objects more desirable without subjects being conscious of this. Many actors can thus benefit from provoking anger. Awareness as a solution?
