The conversation with Jim, your Ad Attacker, which started in KMO Show #20 concludes here. We start off talking about how plausible it is that AI-infused devices might get up to some mischief after we set them aside for newer models. The conversation diverges from that starting premise and roams around as unstructured conversations will.
This episode covers both the OpenAI power struggle of the last couple of weeks but also the Presidential Executive Order and a Foreign Affairs article about the US Military's use of AI.
Just a little update.

I made a video recently in which I talked about the possibility of a second Civil War in the United States. To be clear, I don't think this is likely to happen, but if it did...
Here's a conversation that I recorded with John Atwood on that topic.
This episode is inspired by my listening to a curated list of episode of the QAnon Anonymous Podcast, a left-oriented and sometimes mean-spirited exploration of the Q phenomenon.
C-Realm supporter and occasional podcast guest write of the QAnon Anonymous Podcast: QAnon Anonymous started in 2018. As with all podcasts I enjoy (including yours), I start listening from the beginning, then follow it chronologically. I am now up to about Feb. 2020, so just past the Jan. 6 event, which was huge for Q. What could be the basis of a conversation is the whole idea of conspiracy theories, and in particular how and why people get "red-pilled". There were clips from QAnon rallies and from Jan. 6 that are amazing in how seriously these people believe the crazy. A lot comes from the usual propaganda channels, but there seems to be something more going on.
He compiled the following list of essential episodes:
https://soundcloud.com/qanonanonymous/episode-1-introduction-to-qanon - Must-listen* overall survey. (*Unless you are completely new to the Q phenomenon, I would recommend skipping this one. It is the most mean-spirited episode on this list.)
https://soundcloud.com/qanonanonymous/episode-13-human-trafficking-feat-will-sommer - Human trafficking, which is an important part of Q.
https://soundcloud.com/qanonanonymous/episode-22-qanon-short-story-anthology-2018-edition - A collection of Q stories.
https://soundcloud.com/qanonanonymous/episode-43-scott-adams - The capture of Scott Adams by Trump/Q. I used to follow Scott Adam's blog, and noted his fascination of Trump's rhetorical and persuasive skills. I dropped it when he went into the deep end.
https://soundcloud.com/qanonanonymous/qanon-anonymous-podcast-episode-86-saving-the-mole-children-from-tunnels-under-central-park - The mole children raised in the tunnel network below Central Park in NYC are important to Q.
https://soundcloud.com/qanonanonymous/episode-94-the-new-age-to-qanon-pipeline - What it says. The episode of the C-Realm Vault Podcast draws most heavily from this episode.
https://soundcloud.com/qanonanonymous/episode-103-attending-the-savethechildren-qanon-rally-in-la - "Save the Children" is a cover for Q. Some crazy stuff going on in LA.
https://soundcloud.com/qanonanonymous/episode-125-coup-anon-feat-elle-reeve-eleanor-janega - Detailed description of the Jan. 6 event.
https://soundcloud.com/qanonanonymous/episode-128-from-anonymous-to-qanon-feat-dale-beran-matt-alt-fredrick-brennan-fuxnet - The connection of 4chan (the early Q outlet) to Japanese otakus.
