I am pleasantly surprised that I gained a number of subscribers over the past week. I just wanted to say hello to thank you for following.

If you are here for essays like Reddit is OpenAI’s Moat, I suggest my 2017 essay about autocorrect called Pink Lexical Slime. It took a year to research and write. In that essay, I showed how autocorrect was changing English spelling. I extrapolated how predictive text could amplify bias and alter English style. Of course, predictive text turned into large language models, making the issues way bigger. I should write a big update to that essay at some point.

Please beware that by following me, you are exposing yourself to highly technical content about Linux and databases like What’s Writing to My Brand-new Disk?.

Again, thanks for following me.

By the way, feel free to say hi at dm@cyberdemon.org!
