I never thought about where the term "macro" comes from. It's simply that a small change can have a "macroscopic" effect.

I asked Google Bard to review a URL and it said it loved it because: "It's ad-free. This is a big one for me. I hate ads."

A chef makes $50,000 per year. A dermatologist makes $425,000 per year. Pretty sure a dexterous chef + AI could make a pretty good dermatologist at 1/4 the price.

Now that ChatGPT is the fastest growing product of all time the Mobile App vs Web App debate is over. The Web wins. ^1 Assuming all the reports are true. ^2 Bravo to OpenAI for winning for the web.

ChatGPT went from zero to bigger than Wikipedia according to Google Trends. Also shocking is that Yahoo is still bigger than both of them (as well as Netflix and Instagram). https://i.imgur.com/hOmOGyi.png

Doug Lenat spent 39 years with over 50 researchers building Cyc, a 30-million-rule AI system. But they did it closed source. His paper last year has 1 citation. This is what I mean when I say "licenses are for losers". I hope Doug opens it all up. There's still time. https://i.imgur.com/LmR9IVy.png

If history looks back on Marvin Minsky as the Darwin of our times, and "Society of Mind" as the "Origin of Species", I would not be surprised.

I had ChatGPT write me a collision detection engine using a quadtree. Works perfect...until N > 32. Devil is in the details. :(

Exploring the world of Discord to use Midjourney today. Reminds me of pre-www, the CompuServe and America Online days. What in the world is all of this stuff?

TIL the first business model of Google was Amazon Affiliate links (they only made ~$20). Great podcast: https://open.spotify.com/episode/0oRAHcP9g41jcEzpDtOa4b
