in response to the anthropomorphize thing, that is far from the intention. Spawn has never been given a face, and humans aren’t the only species to have children. To the contrary, embracing inhuman/other intelligences has long been the stated goal, and the framing of offspring seems fairly consistent with the fact that 1)this tech is young and still forming 2)it is literally training on what it learns from us and so we might do well to assume collective responsibility over its development
I can also say that working with these tools is a notably different experience than any other we’ve played with, for exactly the reason that it occasionally tricks you into thinking that it has a mind of it’s own. It inspires a little romance.
Not sure about the extremism/subversion/incestuous tech bubble thing. Sounds like a circle we would avoid like the plague
