after Chat GPT arrived, dozens of existing @ycombinator startups suddenly decided they're "AI-powered" to attract gullible investors ... behold the pivots and the B.S. that is the silicon valley startup economy .. 🧵
Juicebox in November vs. Juicebox today .. now with AI ImageImage
MagnaPlay two months ago vs. MagnaPlay today .. now with AI (and a totally new pitch) ImageImage
Fini two months ago vs. Fini today (now with AI) ImageImage
Stellar app two months ago v. Stellar app today (now with AI) ImageImage
Pump (lol) in October vs. Pump today (now with AI) ImageImage
Knowtex a few months ago vs. Knowtex today (now with AI) ImageImage
Uplink in January vs. Uplink today (now with AI) ImageImage
check out the @ycombinator funded startup Reviewify, which promises to use AI to fix your code. on left is reviewify. on right is chat gpt. hmm ImageImage
could give many more examples but probably best to stop here. especially after SVB/ First Republic, it may be worth asking how many of these extremely well-funded startups are using AI branding to rip off gullible investors

@LevKliesen @00cyborg00 @jazzy33ca @greenpyrs @imcconchie @FBI @KerriKupecDOJ @DOJCrimDiv Yes, putting aside the obvious ethical issues, it is also a nightmare for @Dropbox in a potential lawsuit for employment discrimination
@LevKliesen @00cyborg00 @jazzy33ca @greenpyrs @imcconchie @FBI @KerriKupecDOJ @DOJCrimDiv @Dropbox Hiring manager @dropbox explains that she makes employment decisions based on race, and that she wants “fewer white people” in her life. I have reached out to Dropbox to see how many candidates this manager has rejected in recent years and whether they will investigate.
@LevKliesen @00cyborg00 @jazzy33ca @greenpyrs @imcconchie @FBI @KerriKupecDOJ @DOJCrimDiv @Dropbox This is a clear pattern with this racist Dropbox manager. For years, Jasmine Friedle has explicitly promised to offer extra assistance to certain applicants based on their race. It's hard to overstate how irresponsible these tweets are. cc @dropbox h/t @libsoftiktok

UPDATE: @wakeforestmed announces that Kychelle Del Rosario, the med student who boasted about stabbing a patient because of his politics, is now on an "extended leave." They don't elaborate on length of leave. A member of Congress has told us he will soon push for transparency. Image
I have again asked @wakeforestmed to elaborate on: (1) The length of the 'extended leave'; (2) Why the medical school has refused to condemn the student's decision to boast about a patient injury, publicly or internally; (3) How they determined that the stabbing was accidental.
At this time, the D.A. in Winston-Salem has clear legal basis to issue a subpoena to @wakeforestmed to obtain the identity of the patient who was stabbed and to conduct an independent investigation. Wake Forest has refused to tell us if they've contacted the patient.

Publicist at @wakeforestmed finally sends this. This statement is false. Federal law does not preclude Wake Forest from telling the public whether this doctor is seeing patients and whether she is still enrolled. THE DOCTOR BOASTED ABOUT MISTREATING A PATIENT B/C OF HIS POLITICS.
Wake Forest's meaningless and false reply comes nearly 24 hours after I first sought comment. The original tweet, which other members of Wake Forest's community endorsed, is below:
At this point, it seems clear that @wakeforestmed got what it wanted. They only admit students who believe third graders should be able to chemically castrate themselves. If they openly endorsed the abuse of patients who disagree, how exactly would they behave differently?

@CBCNews reports that a Freedom Convoy protester regrets challenging Trudeau's authority, lost his life savings, lives out of his SUV etc.…. There are many serious factual errors in this piece that call into question CBC's ability to report news. 1/5
First, CBC reports that "Anglehart" was arrested on February 15. As proof, CBC provides a ticket from the 10th. Further, this ticket is not proof of an arrest. 2/5
Second, CBC reports that the man's bank account has been "frozen." Supposedly, the individual posted this video as proof, but it merely suggests e-transfers did not go through. The man feeds the line about accounts being "Frozen." CBC repeats it. 3/5

This footage shows one of many police beatings in Ottawa during the government’s ongoing crackdown on peaceful protesters. It was shot this morning by a bystander named Brian Kanabrowski.
So far, no Canadian media organizations have reached out expressing interest in speaking to the rights holder concerning this clip. If they would like to do so, they can get in touch with me, and I will be happy to connect you.
Update: A truck driver named Csaba Vizi, who had been in Ottawa for three weeks, says he is the man in this video. He says he is currently looking for an emergency room, as his "urine is an amber yellow" and he feels pain when inhaling.
