    No, blogging is easy, but deleting is easier… anyway, the mother of all questions is “why did I delete such and such…” (face management? risk management? plain dumb idea?)

    I like Blogger’s “Save as draft”-function. I’ll often write something, then think “this is
    terrible, I don’t know where I’m going with this, and besides I wouldn’t want to publish
    it anyway, and I’m awful, I have the writing ability of a couch,” etc. And then a week
    later, I find it again and think “well, this needs about one sentence, and it’s done. And
    it’s actually not that bad”, etc. It gives you time to reevaluate stuff.

    I seldom use “save as draft”- funcion. I just blog it. And then reading it
    later I fix it if I’m not saticfact with it. Some times i fix the same text
    several times so the people that reads ny blog must think I’m crazy.

    Jill, I truly don’t know of any professors as “human” as you. Some days I erase
    numerous posts, seems like I don’t know how to write anymore, and then other days
    I’m back in business. You just made my day 🙂

    Thats exactly my process Martin. I also find it useful to just post pics for a while if I’m getting to het up about making sense in the blog. Which has been known to happen.

    YOU think blogging is hard? I don`t`understand how you find so many interesting things to write about? I have only lots of weird thoughts and then I just go on and publish them.. I¥ve only recently started blogging myself again, I used to be in your class spring 2004 huin105. When the huin- server was moved I couldn`t get access anymore, so now I made a new one. Miss those classes – were fun and interesting – I learned alot! Now I am using a blog to write about my six month exchange student life here in Helsinki. Where am I going with all this blabbering? Oh yes, I like reading your blog 🙂 Best regards from an old student of yours!

    Pia! The partly Finnish girl! Great to hear from you, and I’m glad you’re still blogging 🙂

    Blogging is the extreme externalization and amplification of voice, so it would be interesting to know if you engage in the same sort of process in speaking. Are you a confident improvisational speaker, or do you agonize over what you are about to say, preparing and revising text many times? (And of course I’m talking about substantive speaking, as opposed to idle chit-chat.

    Those who are now being socialized into the world of ubi-connectivity, and pervasive proximity are learning to be far more comfortable with having an audile voice, rather than only an oral one. The rest of us are learning to adapt, to a lesser or greater extent.

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. I’ve interpreted this as interest and a need to understand – but yesterday, Eirik Solheim said that every time […]
