As you probably remember, however vaguely, I'm a great fan of "artificial intelligence" understood as a cheap "epidemiologist" gimmick, a two-way radio made of dried mud and prepubescentine eagerness, a "television set" of painted cardboard, an easy-bake oven cooking a steak pencil-drawn on the paper grill.
In fact, outside of "clean fuels" (in the sense of taking the crude that'd normally be distilled into gasoline and instead of that simple, polluting path turn it into fertilizers, which applied upon deforested, artificially irrigated tracts of land will in due time produce corn which can then be losfully fermented into ethanol which is a terrible substitute for gasoline to the point of 1940s derision but blesfully metalworking having arrived to the point where extremely complex and therefore unmaintainable internal combustion engines can be produced that will tolerate some smallish percentage of samagon in the fuel lines it's then a great way to makework for large herds of otherwise utterly useless derps) and "electric vehicles" (in the sense of making something five times as expensive, post subsidy, as a car, and also three times as heavy while half as fast and good for a tenth of the autonomy and a fifteenth of the life expectancy not to mention entirely dependent on rare earths which only China has), it's only "quantum computing" and "artificial intelligence" that truly pierce my heart with joy. Ah, these constructions of mere words, bereft of any meaning, noise proceeding in spite of a complete bereavement of substance, the necessarily and unavoidable (but in that no less amusing) end products of yesteryear's "publish or perish" cvasi-solution to an administratively perceived problem. This artificial intelligence thing actually is almost as good as last generation's wetware version : just as artificial, and just as intelligent.
But let's get back to practical comedy : perusing the helpfully provided illustration inset to the right you perhaps remember fetlife, the canadian meat market, of great past lulz half decade ago. You perhaps similarily remember Bezos' subsidiary dedicating its meagre self to web intelligence etcetera. Since it's taken off the "follow the covid conversation as it unfurls" banner, going back to the more homely "join Sudanese youths in 1992, install a browser extension" why not employ its readily offered, doubtlessly useful fruitings of such artificial intelligence as the new world's best and bravest might provide ? Perhaps it could mine the depths and offer for our bemused perusal a few sites just as unintentionally valuable as fetlife itself, and therefore provide some light material to break the intellectually demanding flow of everyday Trilema ?
fetish.com, the first suggestion, is a dud. The thing's been "around" in the castrated sense of such "properties"i for a good two decades, it's never got past the pretense to being something, it's also never got that pretense sold to anyone, it's practically speaking a sort of 3rd Reich : nobody put an end to it, or even officially admitted it's gone ; but nobody actually gives a shit, either, other than symbolically, and almost always as a symbolic appropriation anyway. Exactly where "the federal government" is headed, by the way.
maybemaimed.com is this ~nothing that came to life out of trying to ride my coat-tails back in 2015, and promptly disappeared -- the domain resolves to an archive.org link from back around then so... you might imagine.
findamunch.com is some porn-dud that quit updating no later than back in March, and in any case wasn't publishing much anything of any interest, neither for "pimps" nor for anyone else.
It's then upon the holeofvoid.com to provide such entertainment as can at all be squeezed out of such lofty promises as this article (relying in turn on the loftier still promises of "artificial" intelligence & c) may perhaps have been misinterpreted up to this point to indeed have been making. Here's what it got :
It has been a while
So a bit of an update. The last 4 years have been a bit of a mess. My slave and former spouse decided to move out and start her life over without me. Her right to choose that for herself.
I’m moving forward in more vanilla ways, but I still keep an eye out for kinky activities. If you see anything that needs reporting in the kink community, please reach out. I’ll try to post more in the near future.

Meanwhile in actual reality Trilema actually reaches a larger audience than Fetlife ; but this, of course, is not something that the "artificial intelligence" might be required to take into account. After all, if it were real intelligence it wouldn't be called artificial, would it now ; and besides -- the internet is for "slaves" that are really spouses and have their own rights to do whatever the fuck. What am I talking about, actual slaves that aren't spouses nor have rights ?! Things gotta be, and above all gotta stay fake, because should anything real leak in, to any degree, at any juncture, well then... WHAT WILL ALL THE FAKERS DO ?!?!———
- Just like sex.com and so following, there's a slew of these "virtual real estate" "valuable" "properties" with "great economic potential" whose real-estatyness, value, and perception of economic potential constitute the main barrier to any sort of development, utility, or life. Kinda the same process that kills good franchises and daddy's girls -- the baseless pretense to a floor that may never exist under the foot of babes. [↩]
- It's almost never the case that these "back from the dead" postings are anything but a close-down notice that shuns its proper name. [↩]
- Isn't it simply refreshing, just how up to date these artificial intelligences actually are ? [↩]
