William N. Braswell, Jr. (AKA Will the Chill) Talking About How Microsoft and 'The Cloud' Ruined His Work, Saying 'Open' AI “Needs to Go Out of Business”; Media Says 'Open' AI Probably Faces Bankruptcy Next Year or Later This Year

William N. Braswell, Jr. (AKA Will the Chill)

Summary: This morning's talk by William N. Braswell explains that Microsoft basically doomed 'Open' AI and its userbase; it's meanwhile argued that it'll go out of business quite soon (there's simply no viable business model)

MUCH of the hype about 'Open' AI was paid for. It was fake.

Last night we took note of the rapid decline of 'Open' AI (yes, it is measurable) and the following talk, which was delivered live about 8 hours ago, has a portion on how "evil empire" Microsoft screwed people over. They also affected him by deprecating the API, citing financial reasons. The summary of the talk is here and we suggest watching 20:50 to 31:50 of today's clip, hard-linked as follows:

YouTube (Google) breaks almost every Invidious instance which attempts to play the video.

Hours ago the media said that due to lackluster interest the entire company might collapse within months (it publicly admitted the bills were too high). d ChatGPT Creator OpenAI Could Go Bankrupt by 202: With declining users and competitors on the rise, could the creator of ChatGPT really be on the way to bankruptcy?

If the company goes out of business, taking into account that it just works for Microsoft now, Mr. Braswell will be pleased. In his talk, pay careful attention to what they did and how. Typical Microsoft. He learned the hard way never to use their stuff and ended up building his own.
