github copilot / workers' rights
people are angry about this thing
is it because programmers are facing the fact that the work they do is just another semi-skilled job and doesn't require the four-dimensional brain and finely-tuned craftsmanship they believe sets them apart from other workers?
there's a huge workers' rights thing to fight for here, and the tech industry's reluctance to unionise is going to cost us a lot, but we really got to stop pretending programming is such a special, amazing thing, it's just a job
github copilot / siilly
love this comment on reddit though:
"GitHub Copilot doesn’t actually test the code it suggests, so the code may not even compile or run."
Oh my god, its as competent as a real programmer
