The blog is off for the holiday weekend, to return on Tuesday. So I leave you weekend links.
- Paramount Plus is raising prices when it merges with Showtime. Just in time for the last season of Picard to finish. Most of the new Star Trek shows have been disappointing to me. Not sure I will keep this one.
- A Conversation with Bing’s Chatbot Left Me Deeply Unsettled was a bit disturbing. However you have to remember that AI does not feel, it is acting.
- The popular Mastodon client Ivory is releasing a Mac version. Ivory remains a reason I like/check Mastodon, but it still feels a bit empty in there compared to twitter.
- Best Wide Foot Running Shoes for 2023 is a decent collection of reviews of running shoes for wide footers. Being a 4E in shoe width, my options always feel limited.
- Currently Reading: Tracers in the Dark. Finally a well written non-fiction crime novel that actually understands the technology behind Bitcoin.
