There’s a story on mobile literature in the NY Times, taken from the International Herald Tribune which fortunately doesn’t require registration, and they mention Media Republic‘s mobile phone soap opera Jung-Zuid, complete with well-known stars and so on. I can’t read Dutch, but the company’s working on an Australian version to be called “My Way”. Vodaphone and Twentieth Century Fox have teamed up to produce a “mobile drama” version of the TV series 24, to be offered in one minute video segments to mobile phone customers in 23 countries starting next month.

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.
