Meaning is an Economic Unit

Using AI to write a blog post generates a voice that is not yours and attracts clicks from people you don’t seek (care about).

As AI tools develop, the permissions developers give them to attempt to make more decisions and go deeper into the meaning of the text. A machine can’t engage with meaning. It is a ledger of probabilities.

It is up to individuals to resist being automated by the tools, companies, and others around them.

These nudges are as subtle as paying attention to Grammarly suggestions and sussing the output of Notion or Linkedin AI for meaning/value.

Meaning is an economic unit, which exists at a higher level than spreadsheets. AI has no skin in that game.
