Powerful, concise words. I think I'm going to snippet some of these to read each morning so that I can lean into and embrace the struggle each day. Thank you.

As an artist this saddens me. I remember the WWW, my first AOL account, writing html. Thank you for helping me understand AI, oh!, artifical intelligence and ChatGPTa a little bit more. Sounds so grossly inhabiting. Hopefully there will be some natural ground to retreat to but I really worry for so many.πŸ˜ͺ

What man actually needs is not a tensionless state but rather the striving and struggling for a worthwhile goal, a freely chosen task. What he needs is not the discharge of tension at any cost but the call of a potential meaning waiting to be fulfilled by him.”-Viktor Frankl

I cannot fathom why anybody who wants to avoid mediocrity would use AI to write. Well, maybe I answered my own question. Maybe it’s a tool for quantity, like you might find in a cupcake factory.

And quantity has become a dominant goal for some people. Along with the good enough approach.

AI cannot do what some people, including myself, do. Maybe someday, I don’t know, but it seems to be wired to consolidate all the writing in the world, distill it down to the middle of the bell curve, and stamp out those cupcakes as fast as possible to a hungry world.
