Reminder: using other people’s work without consent or permission is something we as humans do all the time, and can be ethical in many contexts. Please don’t buy into the copyright maximalist position that every use must require permission.
And yes, this is about AI, and no, I am unsure whether AI scraping is ethical. But we cannot let distaste for AI chip away at the small space we’ve painstakingly carved out for fair, ethical, permissionless use.
Want to know when I post new content to my blog? It's a simple as registering for free to an RSS aggregator (Feedly, NewsBlur, Inoreader, …) and adding www.ff00aa.com to your feeds (or www.garoo.net if you want to subscribe to all my topics). We don't need newsletters, and we don't need Twitter; RSS still exists.
