yeah totally, and I don't see how these problems aren't going to directly translate into problems with AI alignment, as the most likely places to first deploy AGI are going to be corporations 

I had it bookmarked, but not looked at it yet. Thanks for the recommendation!

yeah! It definitely seems like AI alignment is difficult in the two aspects you say, technical and social, whereas something like climate change is mainly difficult from a social perspective. I feel like getting social media right is something that we don't actually know how to solve technically either, so maybe this is another motivation for trying to use it as a test case.

Overall, the realisation of the scale of the challenge of just the social aspect is what has really got my attention.
