Any technology that requires an exceptional level of training to understand is going to be weaponized against people who are not technologists.

@omni I don't know, I posted it hoping someone would accuse me of plagiarism and then tell me the actual author. I can't imagine it's an original thought


That's like the 2020 version of Arthur C Clarke's "any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic"

@khm @neauoire when you say “understand”, what do you mean? Do you mean “use”, or do you mean to deeply understand? Because pretty much any technology has long since passed the point that a non-specialist can understand it.

@khm What is a "technologist"? Is there also word that describes a person who is not that?
