The Norwegian Ministry of Trade and Industry (NÊrings- og handelsdepartementet) is considering using social media and they’ve started a blog to discuss how and if they should do so.

They want feedback, so go over and comment if you have any thoughts.

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