Newsletter No.155 — Dec 20, 2020

Facebook Is a Doomsday Machine ⊗ Pillar or Pawn ⊗ GPT-3 Feels Like a Technological Revolution

This week → Facebook is a doomsday machine ⊗ Pillar or pawn ⊗ Experimenting with GPT-3 felt like witnessing a technological revolution ⊗ What’s breakfast cereal got to do with the future?

A year ago → The most clicked link in issue No.110 was The Metaverse: What It Is, Where to Find it, Who Will Build It, and Fortnite by Matthew Ball.

Some quick notes: You can gift a membership to Sentiers. I’ve settled into somewhat of a rhythm of one Dispatch a month, the latest two being exclusive to members, so all issues up to Dispatch 12 — Spaces of Work & Life are now unlocked for everyone.

Like many other newsletters, Sentiers will be off for the next three weeks, back on Sunday January 17th.

It’s definitely not the best situation, I know, but I wish you and yours happy holidays. See you when this insane year is over!
