I find I'm having to turn to Twitter to find resources / people in the field of #InteractiveMethodProving (#ITP). Are there dedicated spaces / people in the Fediverse who are students / experts in the field and might be able to give pointers to a youngster who just graduated with a #ComputerScience degree? Any leads / pointers appreciated. Thank you!
There's this technique conservative commentators use to boost their reach by saying stuff that's just obviously wrong or super racist, with the intent of people screenshotting/linking their content to dunk on it, inadvertently giving them free marketing. I've always wondered if there was a way to abuse this mechanic without being an awful person, and I think I found it. You just make casual comments about how Elon Musk isn't a actually a genius, then all the Elon simps come and boost your content for free.

I'm starting to believe the rumors that Tesla and SpaceX have management teams whose job it is to basically manage him and find creative ways to avoid implementing his stupid ideas. There is simply no way this guy was ever a competent CEO.
