[Update: later that day. Goodness. Don’t you hate these “busier-than-thou” posts? Oh well, please forgive me, these things happen to the best of us… And I was feeling kinda guilty for not posting!]

Among the next few weeks’ all-consuming tasks are:

  • Read two MA theses
  • grade a 7 cm stack of undergrad portfolios from the web design and web aesthetics course (and that’s just the paper portion of their mostly digital portfolios)
  • making sure all the teaching schedules for various courses this autumn are finalised
  • writing a grant proposal
  • write an abstract for a paper (due yesterday)
  • all the little daily things

But on Friday I move into the corner office.

And in three weeks time my little girl and I are flying to New York! Summer holidays! Hooray!

    girl!! Enjoy your numerous tasks, at least the semester is coming to an end, for
    all of us…

    I’m working on my list. It’s that time of year when the summer seems to stretch out before us, even though it is quickly filled with all of the things we’ve been putting off all year long.

Do people flock to talks about ChatGPT because they are scared?

Whenever I give talks about ChatGPT and LLMs, whether to ninth graders, businesses or journalists, I meet people who are hungry for information, who really want to understand this new technology.
