Don't Scrape Me, Bro + The Activists Sabotaging Self-Driving Cars + How Reddit Beat a Rebellion

Description

Users are protesting Zoom’s liberal data-collection policy. Authors are shutting down websites that scrape their work. And, in a concession to users, OpenAI is allowing websites to opt out of web scraping. The era of A.I. backlash has begun.

Then, street activists are deterring self-driving cars by placing traffic cones on the hoods of vehicles.

Plus: How Reddit has squashed the Reddit Revolt.

Today’s Guests:

  • Adam Egelman and Mingwei Samuel are organizers with Safe Street Rebel, an activist group trying to get cars off the streets.

Additional Reading:

  • The publication StackDiary exposed that Zoom’s updated terms of service permitted the training of artificial-intelligence models on user content.
  • Benji Smith took down his website prosecraft.io, a database that contained the works of over 25,000 books, after authors discovered that their works were being used to power the website without their consent.

The activists sounded ignorant, misinformed, and unintelligent. E.g., they started by expressing their ignorance of how governmental systems work. The DMV is part of the executive branch; they're accountable to the governor and they're limited to the execution of laws. Which laws are the driverless-vehicle companies violating? If there isn't a law, work to pass one, but don't blame people in the executive branch for following the laws. Idiots.
