Suzy's Memoir 2.0

sm2_07_15_18.pdf contains the first two chapters and an outline of Suzy's Memoir 2.0, a new work of fiction by Todd Perry. There's also a plain text version.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Todd graduated from Stanford University in 2001 with a B.S. in Computer Science. He taught AP compsci to high school students for a total of two years between 2001 and 2005 and then he worked as a full-time software engineer for a total of four years between 2006 and 2010 in Palo Alto, CA, first at Palantir Technologies and then at Facebook. After that, he made several angel investments, advised several startups, and wrote code for several more startups and tech-oriented projects.

AUTHOR'S NOTE: In June 2001, I got a subtle facial injury that makes it look like I'm affecting a specific facial expression at all times, in addition to whatever else my face is doing. A year later, I was an adviser for one of Mark Zuckerberg's software projects, which was called SynapseAI, and, at every step along the way since then, I've had access to a lot of unreported data points about the history of Facebook. I also sold all of my FB stock early in 2010 because I thought the company wasn't serious. Between 2010 and 2014, I became confident that my facial injury causes essentially all untrained people to perceive my facial injury as a facial expression and then develop more and more beliefs that simply aren't true. I was optimistic that Zuck and at least a few of the other Facebook insiders would take an interest in this opportunity to learn something new about how human brains work, but they didn't. Between 2014 and 2018, the disagreement about reality between myself and Zuck, among others, became comprehensive, to put it politely, and so, I became a writer. What they're doing is similar to telling a lie and then telling more lies to cover up their previous lies. That's reality distortion 101. More advanced players never lie. They just create incentives for people to remain ignorant of relevant lines of inquiry, and then they take advantage of the confusion and misfortune that naturally emerges from ignorance, and, as of summer 2018, the Silicon Valley crew is still doing a lot of that. Therefore, I suggest thinking of Suzy's Memoir 2.0 (aka. Suzy2) as the intro course, Suzy's Memoir 1.0 (aka. Suzy1), which came before it, is the next level, and TheSuzy.com Show (aka. Suzy0), which came first, is a selection of advanced topics, such as turning Suzy into a self-improving chatbot software service, so that she might become a hauntingly realistic profile of the type of person who could and would give birth to strong AI.
