Have you seen the Technique group at Flickr? It’s full of simple tutorials and ideas for doing slightly different things with your photos, ranging from the complicated to the easy.

My new ambition is to fill my calendar. I’m going to post at least one photo every single day. You might not see all of them, because some will be private, but I’ll have a visual diary and a daily practice.

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.
