    Purely by coincidence, this article is running today on nj.com which is a compendium of news sources in my home state of New Jersey. UBI-adjacent trial in Paterson NJ

    Universal Basic Income

    I wish! In the American system, the only goal of corporations is to keep the shareholders happy. Smaller companies don't have shareholders so yes, I think the 2nd & 3rd do matter in that case, especially since owners see them face to face.

    Universal Basic Income

    That only applies to companies with more than 50 employees and only employees who work at least 30 hours a week have to be covered. Also, those companies have to provide health insurance, which isn't the same as paying for the employee's health care.

    If you do that, it would be great if we could see a photo or 2 of the actors against the green screen before seeing them against the environment like that. But I totally understand if you don't have time to do that.

    I don't see this as political (Democrat/Republican/presidential election) as much as philosophical. But if @indietalk thinks it is, I won't argue :)

    software-related AI Video has arrived - It looks incredible

    I can believe this more easily than having "all" movies made with AI video technology any time soon because no one gives a damn about artistry in commercials - only making money matters. And that's why I think that, even if big budget movies go that route, there will continue to be a universe of...

    Universal Basic Income

    Unfortunately, I think we're a (very) long way away from getting a political consensus on implementing it at all.

    Universal Basic Income

    Sharply higher inflation would be a possible outcome of a huge increase in government cash benefits to a large swath of the population, just as the Covid era benefits led to the inflation that we're just now coming out of. I don't see it as a potential fall out of AI-related mass unemployment...

    Universal Basic Income

    I think there's room to quibble over both numbers but in principle, I see that that as the best (but admittedly unlikely) approach. AI will generate a lot of additional profits for companies (existing & new) while eliminating jobs. That money can be used to keep people fed and housed. It's in...

    software-related AI Video has arrived - It looks incredible

    I'm not saying it won't be big. I simply don't believe it will be everything. Any more than I believe that all music and all art work will be generated by computers. Or all novels will be generated by computers. And I won't have to vacuum the living room any more because my robot will do it...

    software-related AI Video has arrived - It looks incredible

    Because it WON'T look just as good. It may look hyper-real. But that's not "just as good." And yeah, it'll happen eventually I suppose. But I'll be dead by then :)

    software-related AI Video has arrived - It looks incredible

    There will always be filmmakers who march to their own drummer. I'll do that proudly. I've literally never heard of Dall-e until now because it doesn't interest me. No knock on it/them/whatever. It just ain't my thing. I write (and watch!) movies about real people that are shot with real...
