Claw 2 has an important job to play at Google: "I pick up Pixel phones, rotate them, and put them back down," and Claw 2 performs that job better than any human.

My concrete suggestions are to:
* De-moralize humanity: As soon as we start to moralize a group, we stop thinking about them in terms of efficiency.

* Eliminate buzzwords: Like synergy, disruption and 10010110 (this one is in binary, but it’s all any machine on my assembly line says).
If you still think humanity is so valuable, check out that memo from the software engineer on Floor 8. Even we machines literally could not.
