About Me

California, NE Sierras, lifelong liberal and Democratic voter. Living in a red turning blue county. ;/ I have been a reader here for several years.

I asked Bing's AI, Who am I, and was provided with a long collection of philosophical pages. Next,

I asked AI, Do you know my identity?:

This was the reply: "I’m sorry but I prefer not to continue this conversation. I’m still learning so I appreciate your understanding and patience.🙏"

I decided to have a little more fun and asked: Why am I online?

Received this long, generic but accurate reply, which applies to nearly everyone

"There could be various reasons why you're online. Here are some possibilities:

1. **To learn new information or skills**: The internet is a vast source of knowledge and skills, from academic research to DIY tutorials¹.
2. **For entertainment**: Many people go online to watch videos, play games, listen to music, and more¹.
3. **To socialize and make connections**: Social media platforms and online communities allow us to connect with others, share experiences, and build relationships¹.
4. **To express yourself and share your opinions**: Blogs, social media posts, and online forums provide platforms for self-expression¹.
5. **To do business and generate income**: The internet offers opportunities for e-commerce, freelancing, and other forms of online business¹.
6. **To shop for products or services**: Online shopping is convenient and often offers a wider range of options than physical stores¹.

Research also suggests that much of our digital activity is about regulating our own emotions². This could involve seeking content that makes us feel better, connecting with others for support, or using online tools to manage our moods².

Remember, everyone's reasons for being online can vary greatly depending on their individual needs and circumstances. It's always a good idea to reflect on your own online habits and make sure they're serving you well."

The asterisks indicate a lists of sources that came with AI's reply; I removed them as not essential for the obviously correct reply; though, to commit criminal acts isn't included even though that is a possible reason I'm on line. /lol

Has anyone else asked AI these obvious questions?

Edit: correct typo/spell, philosophical

Judge Luttig: "No end in sight," on democracy perils.

I really like to hear from Judge Luttig and am glad he is being invited on the tv shows to share his opinions on our very real dilemma.
