The was written by a human, I swear.
Been thinking a lot about you guys today, the people willing to sign up for my blather on this platform. :) It means a lot to me, truly. I’m very thankful for it. It means we can have a direct line of back-and-forth in a loud and busy social world. Your feedback about what I do and make is very valuable to me. Thank you!
One thing I’ve been thinking about recently is how irritated I tend to get about AI content generation. Be it art, film, photos, audio…all of it. I just find it frustrating, and have been asking myself, why? Why does it rub me so wrong? That old worry about the machines getting better at things than us, and taking over? Maybe, as hyperbolic as it sounds.
Part of me just wants to rant about the problems surrounding the technology and its uses. Part of me is excited about where it’s all headed. And then, there’s this LITTLE part of me that thinks this is a new podcast: A show dedicated to talking the computer scientists behind the innovations, and informed deep conversations about the implications of AI generated content.
Am I gonna do that? I am thinking about it, but not sure yet. But I am curious what all your takes are regarding AI, whether it’s art or deep fakes, or whatever.
I hope you’re having a fantastic week, and finding fun and joy out there. For paid subs, just a note that chapter three of the book is coming soon. Huge thanks for all the great feedback on that. It’s really got me motivated to keep going and push out the story I want to tell.
See you all soon!
