Learningtoloveyoumore.com has many tongue-in-cheek assignments, from sewing an adult replica of a baby’s jump suit to taking photos of strangers holding hands. Several are documented on the website, and you can of course choose to accept any assignment and send in documentation to prove that you’ve completed it. The assignment I’d be most likely to attempt is Assignment #10: Make fliers of your day, where you write a paragraph about soemthing you did today, make 100 copies and post them around your neighbourhood. It reminds me of Hanna’s sticker blogging idea. The idea of Learning to Love You More is to liberate” from creativity. Exact assigments make it easier to create. And we can all enjoy drifting through the results. Is the idea. I quite like it.

    Hei, Jill, get your nifty digital camera and go take a picture of the grafitti in the ladies room at Studentsenteret! That’s analogue physical blogging, like Hanna writes about – changing the environment you move in, leaving snippets from your life and getting comments, sometimes evolving into conversations. Some of those comments are decades old and refer to literature on everything from biology to religion and through the whole range of social sciences. If it’s still there, of course. It’s been too long since I read the walls of the student center toilets.

    Yes, that’s true, Torill – though most of those don’t relate a day, but instead complain about a specific topic. They’re more like usenet than weblogs, wouldn’t you say?

    Not that it really matters 🙂

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 […]
