    Looks a bit Final, this ferry journey (it’s not really strange how abstract images have that mythic quality) — don’t pay the ferryman just yet!

    Whilst I’m all for playing with info-ubiquity, I think the Proper Camera won’t lose its place. If I wasn’t a scientist, I’d say this image exhibits excessive Splodginess (those pink highlights, the random coloured dots in the waves). On the other hand, if I was an artist I’d say that was quite an improvement over oh-so-perfect CCDs. A pocket Seurat generator in fact.

    Oh…..Final, ey? That must be the reason why I felt claustrophobic watching it. Hmm… no, it must be because I just don’t like landscape pictures. On second thought, it must be because I rode a ferry twice every single week day for three years at high school… Jill, your picture reminds me of endless pensive waiting and longing for a harbor.

    It was quite a long trip. But I had to take a photo of SOMETHING, cos you know, I wanted to moblog. It’s just that there are so many things not worth moblogging. I hope to do better from France 🙂

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 […]
