This weekend, I was thinking about the impact of generative models: if creative work becomes easier due to AI leverage, where does the value accrue? My answer: taste! In a world full of content, curators and creators with strong taste have outsize impact. https://loeber.substack.com/p/7-ai-creates-returns-to-taste

Today, I was thinking about the search for product-market-fit, and how much you should focus on polish in those early days. My view: not very much. Importantly, that's not just about faster iteration cycles. There are subtler reasons to avoid polish: https://loeber.substack.com/p/6-avoiding-polish-to-find-product

lowbackgroundsteel.ai Soon, the majority of online content will be AI-generated. But generated from what training data? Well, online content, of course. But if that’s going to be mostly AI-generated already then that’s not real “training data”, that’s just reinforcement… 1/5

I spent all of today thinking about modern web design. There are so many talented people working on UI/UX design. So why are interfaces often inconsistent and frustrating to navigate? What is it that I miss about the Windows XP software era? Read my latest essay: Bring Back Idiomatic Design https://t.co/qWmvtaCeYp

Props to Satya for putting out a Bing chatbot that has a personality, is assertive, and basically sparks controversy. Opposite of what most large, risk-averse companies would do. Great way to have Microsoft dominate the entire PR cycle for AI with a toy. Meanwhile I don’t even remember what Google’s press release

Everyone on Warpcaster pre-rebrand should get a non-transferable NFT of the original farcaster logo ~7000 purple logos of slightly different shades This will be very cool and a neat little status wink when warpcaster is used by millions

Dealing with biweekly payroll data and becoming rapidly convinced that the year should have 13 months. 52 weeks = 13 months of 4 weeks each = 28 days per month. So many annoying datetime math/edge cases disappear. There seems to be some good prior art for it: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Fixed_Calendar
