I’ve been generating a bit of text for example sites recently and this text has the same smell I get from ChatGPT and co-pilot.

Internet pile-ons are pivotal to the plot. Do you use social media?
No, I’ve never had a Facebook account or anything. I find it depressing for people on the left to indulge the mechanisms of neoliberal tech-bro billionaires who make huge profits from algorithms that enable a bearpit mentality.

from today’s observer I’m on the left – I’ve been in a union for years – Sunjeev Sahota

ironically, perhaps, the online title is Sunjeev Sahota: ‘I’ve always been in labour movements – but I’m critical of identity politics’

Listened Caught by the River Spoken Word & Nature Disco Volume 9 from mixcloud.com
Volume 9 in an irregular series of specially created mixtapes for readers of Caught by the River.

I have seen links to this on Caught By the river a few times now. First time I followed up by listening. Really enjoyed a pretty eclectic mix of poetry & music.

I’ll be listening to more. I was disappointed that mixcloud does not support RSS feeds, so I had to use Huffduffer-video to listen to this on my commute. The Tracklist is on the Caught by the River site: Spoken Word & Nature Disco Vol. 9.

Despite mealy-mouthed words about sustainability and transparency the salmon industry is Scotland’s disgrace. The gap between the iconic identity of salmon as a wild symbol of natural Scotland, and the reality is massive. The potential to completely replace this industry with regenerative genuinely sustainable jobs is huge, but the Scottish Government seems to be missing a massive open goal here, instead propping up (and covering up) for short-term lucrative gain. A mass boycott of salmon should be the goal to exert pressure on government and industry.

I remember, as a wee boy, seeing the netting station at the mouth of the Spey, piles of fresh run wild salmon. I now avoid eating salmon.
