This gal makes an effort to avoid big tech and tracking. It’s neat you can still get most out of technology without having to give everything away, but it sure is hard.
Did find this nice laptop company via him though, for linux laptops with open bios etc.
Someone asked a question about the Lux. I was hopeful it would end in a sale, but so far all quiet.
Was off last two days, and tomorrow at work I’ll have no idea what day it’ll be.
I like this article about ChatGPT.
Think of ChatGPT as a blurry JPEG of all the text on the Web.
It generates output that is believable, but not necessarily correct. I don’t think most people realise this. I don’t think I realised this. Someone (I forget where I saw it) found that it was producing references of scientific papers that looked legit but were, in fact, entirely made up. The doi URLs weren’t real and nor were the people or paper titles. The author challenged ChatGPT on what it had done and effectively the machine just shrugged its shoulders and said “I did what I was told”.
I see Kodak is going to raise prices again on the 1st March, on average 20% across its stock. 😔
