Enjoyed your thoughts and comments on the Kate Ray video. Great to see the well nuanced cautions.
I expecially applaud you for, “I don’t mind PLEs being messy.” Messiness is a particularly human trait that distinguishes us from the hive. Long live cognition which computers can’t parse.
Your point about who controls what things can “mean” is also well taken.
As a non-academic I find your blog extremely accessible. Thanks for the clear thinking and writing.
