Tagcloud of Bards to Blogs draftI really, really, really need to be writing Chapter 2 of my book about blogging, because I’m presenting parts of it on Tuesday and Friday this week. Instead, I made a tag cloud of what I’ve written so far.

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 […]
