Bad idea of the day: replace your planner with a planchette and let DEAD GHOSTS set your daily schedule, remind you of appointments, etc.
Hot take: it's not 'technical debt' but 'technical hoarding'
*slaps the roof of a non-deterministic Turing machine* this bad boy can fit so many deterministic Turing machines in it
Hot take: the big problem in generative art is not that computers aren't creative but that computers don't have taste. We've solved that problem by building taste into the mechanisms of generation instead of building filters.
Did a demo of an exploitation to the crew who has to patch the issue (its a large systemic issue. Not an easy patch.)
First demo was showy. And some of the crew thought it looked cool but would be easy to detect.
Brought out the second demo and displayed a real world “quick” attack. Happened in less than a second. Just a blip before the crash. No way to detect or stop.
There was a long silence afterwards.
Everyone was on board. We set about planning on how to fix it.

Humans are reward-based creatures. That's evolution at work. Volunteerism for no reward and little payoff is not necessarily a reward, or "the ends don't justify the means," especially if it's backbreaking.
My issue is Capitalism makes survival the reward. "You work, or you don't survive." That's definitely a valid criticism. And in an increasingly automated (not even fully automated) future, there are going to be less jobs than people. Survival is going to be impossible.
