something wrote haiku
human future uncertain
surge to buy tech stocks


n.b. Absolutely, 100% predictable, investments in technology corporations are rocketing in direct proportion to rising fears of the ability of AI to end the Anthropocene.

To be quite frank, we’re doing a pretty good job of writing ourselves into the fossil record, so maybe time something else gave running the planet a go.

Trouble is, investor people, the money will be worth nothing if there’s no one to use it.

Then again, there is plenty of the folding stuff sitting around in the pockets of those who have plenty, while millions have insufficient to live healthily, so do what you like. Money clearly isn’t for everyone.
