People tell me they're afraid of AI and computers taking over the world but if it helps: I'm really not.
For the last few decades since Terminator came out, we've been hard at work building in a dead man's switch to every major system on Earth to prevent this from happening. I guarantee you that if computers try to take over the world, somewhere, within a month, a certificate for some critical dependency no one ever considered will expire and take all the machines out at once. We've done a few dozen trial runs of this to make sure the system works. 100% success rate so far.

We shouldn't be putting our eggs into dozens of 1-day self-aggrandising confs where venues walk away with all the money, and instead supporting enabling community infra like Farset Labs, Low-Cost-Medium-Impact with 'generously' given sponsorship of regular domain specific meetups and large cross-silo events like NIDC.
