I’ve rarely seen my blog as inordinately dull as in the last week or two. I’m off on my summer holidays on Tuesday morning, and I’ve been frantically trying to tie up all the loose ends here at work. Got through a huge stack of grading, organisational things are almost in place, etc, etc, etc, etc.

Expect more blogging in August. Enjoy the summer! I know I will.

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