What Do They Know

I guess we really shouldn’t be too surprised that main stream journalism kinda got it wrong with the new AI marketing storm. This happens all the time but it is easy to miss.

Whenever some domain of specialized knowledge rises up in the public consciousness, and when it is one you happen to be well acquainted with—not an expert necessarily but certainly more than proficient—when you then read an article or hear a news story on the domain, inevitably you have opportunity to say to yourself “Well, that’s kind of a half-truth, or Hmm, seems an over-simplification…”

That isn’t just you. We all do that all the time. I wouldn’t call that a carburetor. You shouldn’t add salt after it cools. IP addresses can’t work that way. M1 isn’t M2. And so on.
