Reddit: 'We Are in the Early Stages of Monetizing Our User Base' (www.404media.co)

Reddit said in a filing to the Securities and Exchange Commission that its users’ posts are “a valuable source of conversation data and knowledge” that has been and will continue to be an important mechanism for training AI and large language models. The filing also states that the company believes “we are in the early...

It took them how many years to monetize their user base? This company is run by complete idiots.

These are totally the signs of a stable and profitable company.

Can they get their money back?

@KingThrillgore@lemmy.ml avatar

Shit I'd take home 9.3 million to do that.

And then move out of town and change my name because have you seen how nuts some redditors are?

Does this company have some kind of multiple personality disorder

Fox Entertainment is actually not owned by Disney, its the parts of 20th Century Fox Studios Disney couldn't acquire or want. And Disney has dropped "Fox" from 20th Century Studios, owing to Fox News.

Companies get mad when the employees look at their jobs the way execs look at their employees. Cue outrage. The only reason they mad is because they own the newspapers, too.

The audacity of these removed. I have a mercenary outlook on work too. If you love me, keep paying me good.

At the end of the day, software developers desire two things: An interesting technical challenge, and fair pay/benefits for the work done. If you can't provide either, you have a problem. Not the employee.

They're literally going to suck as much money off these schmucks as they can: First by selling their 'content' to AI, and then by just letting them give them money for shares that will pitfall.

I remember a developer at Reddit telling me on a private Slack that old.reddit is so deeply embedded into the code it would be a removed to remove. I didn't believe him, because that could easily be 301'd without pulling out old code.

He was let go in the recent layoffs.

Man all this positivity for Kagi feels astroturfed. No offense if you're actually not a paid shill, but everywhere I go it seems too flowery to believe.

I've heard enough in the replies -- I will be giving Kagi an honest shot.

Just how the f*CK did Nintendo developed tears of the kingdom?

I would say that Nintendo ERD had access to the bare metal specs from Nvidia when implementing the graphics API (or reused parts of the mothballed Cg spec).

He probably merits a 200 page Kiwi Farms thread, if they also didn't suck him off for being "one of us."

I used to know this guy on a forum who had a serious mental disorder, would get banned for attention removed, and would come back months later either as a woman or someone else and get attention until we realized its the same fucking dude. He did actually have a forum of his own, and I am convinced at least three of the most active accounts were him, talking to himself. I don't know what disorder he had, but he needed help.

When spez took away API access, he basically shit on the social contract that offered a fair exchange of free access for the content we fed into reddit. After the API change, there were new terms: there is no contract. There are no terms. If you use reddit now, you are giving away everything you are to be indexed and mangled by statistics. You exist as free labor to statisticians and machines.

You are more than a few cents of bad memes.

I'm going to make the request in the AM that Lemmy should add robots.txt rules to disallow AI crawlers, to at least indicate we're not interested. We need legislation that tells scrapers what they can access.

Are there any genuine benefits to AI?

I can see some minor benefits - I use it for the odd bit of mundane writing and some of the image creation stuff is interesting,, and I knew that a lot of people use it for coding etc - but mostly it seems to be about making more cash for corporations and stuffing the internet with bots and fake content. Am I missing something...

KingThrillgore ,
@KingThrillgore@lemmy.ml avatar

Depends on what kind of AI. In gaming, AI is part of the process to entertain and challenge the player, and has even been used to help model life systems.

I have yet to see how useful LLMs can be outside of being blatant plagarists but for a time, projects like AI Dungeon really did push the emphasis on "interactive dynamic narratives" and it was really fun for a while.

ML has been an important part in fraud detection for at least a decade now.

This is why I deleted my posts. Also, 60 million is a jokingly lowball figure.
