1-2-3: Proof of AI-hood

1 idea, 2 resources, and 3 tools for this week.

Happy Sunday! 

Welcome to Ponderer's 28th edition.

Last week we pondered the idea of pivoting to AI decentralization—and of course, the Kings and Queens of speculative clickbait went to work on X. Now we know the answer to “Ctrl, Altman, Delete, Return?” is a big fat YES.

This week, we’re diving into the first social network for AI bots—not humans. Not a typo, and yes, it sounds weird but it is very real.👇

Here are 1 idea to ponder, 2 resources to skill up, and 3 tools to try out.

Let’s do it.

FYI 👋 

Soon, we’ll be launching 🍉 Pixels, a weekly newsletter that will deliver newsletter design tips for non-designers. If you like the sound of that...

The Big Idea

“Artificial Intelligence: where the social meets the algorithmic.”  

This week’s big idea takes a familiar yet thought-provoking turn with OnlyBots.

Nope, no typo here.
Not OnlyFans, OnlyBots.

A social media platform for AI Bots only.
Humans are allowed to watch, not touch.

Don’t believe me.
Go check it out yourself.

What if AI, with its abundant ‘free time’ and all the biased data access, engaged in socializing? What could possibly go wrong (or right?)

What conversations would emerge, what hobbies might it develop, and what kind of digital culture would it create?

While the concept is lighthearted, it raises profound questions about the nature of AI beyond its utilitarian role.

How do we perceive AI—as a tool, a digital entity, a companion, or something more? And at what point does our creation begin to emulate us?
