THIS JUST IN - we have a report from a mfer claiming to have experienced a “black-mirror-like” morning. She claims this comes on top of a recent surge in these so-called black-mirror-like experiences and she cannot keep silent any longer! Let’s go to her live now!
A remote like this has electronic hardware that can precisely measure information about it’s position, orientation and movement through space in real time.
Could AI now combine that with data like clicks, scrolls and time spent to create a holistic profile of you across your accounts? Has it been doing that all along?

I think this first attempt is pretty good. Looking at it I think “yeah, that is what I feel like with all these weird new technologies coming at me from all angles.” I explore it more in the postscript.
I remember reading 1984 by George Orwell in high school (over a decade ago). TVs that were actually cameras and loudspeakers, pumping propaganda and watching everyone. Machines, not musicians, composed the songs of the day. The main character had a medical problem he complained about throughout.
Maybe 2022 is a good time to re-read 1984 - it certainly felt relevant today. But then again, I will probably be too busy reading Privacy Policies and User Agreements.
The first version is still my favorite. There is something about the abject look of desperation and confusion on her face. The hair is messy and chaotic, reminiscent of my pfp. Mysterious almost-but-not-quite hands hold out a device that spews glowy electrickey technology goo. As I first saw it, it resonated with me. Now I think I’ve looked at it too long.
On the next version all I did was add to the prompt and use the first picture as a base.

My first impression of this one was that, at least, she doesn’t look so scared anymore, just like I feel better now after writing this article. Maybe she is thinking “OK this sucks but I’m sure I can figure a way out of this situation.”
On deepdreamgenerator.com it seems like you get a limited number of tokens in your account that accumulate over time. It costs tokens to generate a picture and the higher quality settings increase the price. This is probably to limit the exploitation on the tool and encourage users to subscribe. I used the lowest quality for all the images except right at the end I decided to blow the rest of my tokens on one last high-quality version with the same prompt text.
Look at those red fingertips, 10 out of 10 would recommend the fancy settings 😜
