    Right? I know Sam Altman sucks but I don’t know if he was fired for more profit or less, or what exactly is going on. I’m not sure how to react to these articles besides surprise and bemusement.

      Rumor is since the board aren’t investors, they’re not looking for money from the venture.

        Crypto bro, wants to scan everybody’s eyes with AI, has this weird startup that puts eye scanners in orbs and places them around the world where people are curious and stare into them having their eyes scanned.

        He’s just a weird dude in general.

          Just because I were curious enough to check this out, from Wikipedia:

          Worldcoin aims to provide a reliable way to authenticate humans online, to counter bots and fake virtual identities facilitated by artificial intelligence. Using a distribution mechanism for its cryptocurrency similar to UBI, Worldcoin attempts to incentivize users to join its network by getting their iris scanned using Worldcoin’s orb-shaped iris scanner.

            Does it also mention that he basically deployed it exclusively in the third world, in places that the regulations were/are lax?

              I think you got it backwards. The scanning was available everywhere, including the US… where the lack of privacy regulations allowed him to siphon biometric data without giving any crypto in exchange.

              He isn’t a “crypto bro”, he’s a guy who hyped the danger of AI in order to get as much biometric data as possible, everywhere.
