There's a Beatles song, by John Lennon, that was written by cribbing promotional items from a 19th-century circus poster. It's kind of like asking ChatGPT to give you some random phrases and presenting that as your creativity. I think I'm going to try that now. I asked ChatGPT to write a poem using ideas from a random song written by John Lennon. It chose Imagine. I asked that it write a poem using the ideas in Day Tripper. And finally I asked it to write a song based on the story of The Matrix ..read more

BTW, apparently my post yesterday where I said I was "doing some of my best writing in ChatGPT" was confusing. I meant literally what I said. My writing. Not that I was using ChatGPT to do my writing for me. I can understand that some people do that, writing isn't one of their things. However writing is one of my things. I've been writing every day for almost thirty years. My writing style has changed a lot over the years. I don't necessarily think it's gotten better, it's just different. I would never post writing publicly written by a anyone other than me without saying it was. Writing for m ..read more

Unfortunately ChatGPT has been down just when I needed it for some SQL coding help, so I turned to Google's service, and then thought to paste the post above into it's tiny little text box, and see what it had to say. It suggests, among other things, that I reconsider whether ChatGPT is a good deal. Heh ..read more

It just occurred to me that I'm doing some of my best writing in ChatGPT, and I don't automatically get a copy of all that text somewhere I can access it if they go away. Also that writing is not going into any search engine. Normally I watch out for this, but they got me, and you, to write for them for free, and I pay them $20 a month for the privilege. However in balance it is worth it, at least in the short term ..read more

The other day I asked if an op-ed columnist at the NYT or WP would ever criticize their employer for showing poor judgement on what to report on, esp re the election. I was thinking of the story about the special prosecutor who did something highly unethical in writing a public, official, condemnation of someone he investigated yet decided not to prosecute. We have judges and juries for that. Only in a police state can a prosecutor pass judgement on an accused person. The news orgs took the bait, I didn't read one report on who Robert K. Hur is, and the ethics of what he did. Is it appropriate ..read more

Old enough to know besteer

I came up with a motto for Joe Biden's presidential campaign -- Old Enough to Know Better. I asked ChatGPT to draw a campaign rally with a banner that said that, but it wouldn't do it for Joe Biden, so I changed the name to Bull Mancuso, and had him run for governor of Calif instead of president of the US. It still couldn't spell the banner correctly but it is pretty inspiring. The banner should read "Old Enough to Know Better ..read more

I have the motto for the Biden campaign: Old enough to know better. Uncle Joe, sit down with a reporter you can relate to, and explain what aging is about. How there's good and bad that come with getting on, and Repubs (of course) have been focusing on the bad but the journalists aren't getting the other side. One thing is for sure, it's hard to put one over on someone who's been in politics at the highest level for as long as President Joe has been. That's what the "know better" part is about. Whatever you can say about him, he knows a lot about being president. I've been using this motto as ..read more

Another Beatles post

Even though they are, for me, the biggest band ever, I've never been able to see the connection to the John Lennon of the early Beatles, and the long-haired bespectacled wild John Lennon that came later. I don't see them as the same person. Not the other Beatles, they all make sense to me. Sometimes they have longer hair or a beard or whatever, but it's still the same face as before. Also I have trouble figuring out which Beatle is singing sometimes. On some songs it's perfectly obvious, others I have no clue. For example Norwegian Wood, Come Together, Strawberry Fields and Lucy in the Sky, th ..read more

I don't care if you work at a big company or are an individual developer. I care if you can make a contribution toward interop on the open web. I've found over the years that sometimes devs at bigco's can help enormously (eg microsoft, netscape, automattic) but usually they are harmful (apple, ibm, sun, google stand out as the worst). sometimes companies play both roles (apple). But i also know that bigco's because they are big, have lots of different ideas how the world should work. And that can help ..read more
