I am very tired of hearing speculative discussions of all the ways that tools like ChatGPT and other large language models could be used to make our lives better that are completely disconnected from how basically everything technology of the last 30ish years actually has been deployed.

Like, aside from science fiction stories, we have essentially no model for how these big systems get paid for that does not involve exploitation, alienation, and massive negative externalities.
