I suppose I could do this. I fixed a bug for Odysee once and didn’t get anything (substancial) so I’m not doing twitter work for free. Fuck’em.

He is doing it for free (living expenses paid)

He got so hyped by Elon’s letter on Hardcore Mode at Twitter that he stepped down as CEO from his self driving startup to do 12 weeks in SF

The self driving company looks really cool. He open sourced their tech in 2016 and it looks like a phone that can be attached to many different brands of cars

Apparently customers rate it higher than Tesla’s autopilot

edit: looks like people already fixed it. I’ll follow him though. I don’t love the idea he would get credit for work I did.

geohot, I only found out about him today, but he seems like a tech legend. Musk already had his number…

He really doesn’t sound like the sort of guy who would mooch someone else’s work. It seems he really is trying to improve things

Geohot has done two great things in his life.

  1. First to jailbreak and run a iphone on T-Mobile. It was a att exclusive
  2. First to jailbreak the PlayStation 3 and make the full gpu available to linux (Was rpeviously purposefully gimped for game licensing reasons.) This is where I knew him from because I followed the homebrew scene sense

Neither of these things were really code related.

I followed his ai stuff on github. I don’t think he’s actually written much of anything. He just forked abunch of other people’s code and hired other developers to do it with a grant Elon Musk gave him.

I 100% believe he would take credit one way or another.

And in regards to the jailbreaking, he used very experienced people in irc chats to guide him through it. He just had money to burn with the equipment.

Maybe you are right and he’s an egomaniac who can only steal. You can get away with it once or twice. But how do you do that for more than a decade w/o getting a reputation ?

Would Musk be so naive to hire someone he knew for years, not realise he’s a hack ?

Why did he step down as CEO and take up a living expense only internship ?

He has many tech fans on youtube streams. I feel he loves challenge and is very curious

I’m not saying he’s a hack. He just hasn’t actually done anything amazing in regards to software engineering.

I don’t even think his AI company has anything in production. It’s all R and D funded by musk. I could be wrong I have not looked into it much lately.

Like I said, the dude is provably good at breaking hardware security. But he had a lot of money and help to do it. His success with the iphone taught him how to go about the ps3 security. He didn’t do it alone and had lots of help.

He was sued by sony and the FOSS community raised like a million dollars to support him fighting his lawsuit.

He settled and donated all the money to the electronic freedom foundation. But it made him famous and that is how Musk met him.

Before you believe that he is some kinda genius untouchable by normies,

Just watch this

He clearly got into lots of weed after that.

People kept wanting to interview him like he was some kinda genius but the dude said lots of retarded stuff in interviews.

I think its the Einstein phenomenon. The bigger brain someone has, the less sane they seem to normies

Also remember reading that dick/ball size is inversely proportional to IQ. Helps a lot of Asians/Indians cope, lmao

Before resigning on October 31 to join Twitter, he sold phone like devices for years. Mountable in many car brands: https://comma.ai/shop/comma-three

Customers rated it better than Tesla. All reviewers and comments seem enthusiastic: https://piped.kavin.rocks/watch?v=Hc8G5U0p1sA

I read Musk offered him 12 million in 2015. He declined. Then FEDs tried to regulate it, so he open sourced it to avoid that

He just hasn’t actually done anything amazing in regards to software engineering.

I see. I discovered him today, so you probably know more

Just watch this

OMG, lololol. His tweets are intense. He maybe a retarded madman, but a lot of it was thought provoking

I would need to look into it. I thought I read Elon gave him the grant to start that company.

I think Geohot is better at marketing IT stuff than actual engineering imo. Who knows though he’s not dumb. He did sound retarded when he was like high giving speeches about living in a skyrim simulation.

You could be 100% right. I don’t know at all

He generates a lot of interest like Elon. Seems all the news these days just revolve around Musk. Is the world that boring, or the man really that interesting ?

Reminds of TDS years. All the news was just 1 man

Yeah trump is great at marketing. It’s legit a skill. And a better one than Engineering imo.

I would say geohot is good like that. And he did break some great security.

Amazing there is an Open Source, self driving AI, people used for 6 years, in 200+ car models, beating Tesla, from a company with puny resources compared to Tesla !

Why haven’t we heard this anywhere ? Biggest Open Source Win of all time
