As a productivity geek, I am very excited about the recent advancements in AI as a content-generating tool.
In fact, I have already started using ChatGPT as a writing assistant for my blog.
However, I am very careful with the content produced by it, as the currently available AI models are not trustworthy enough to produce 100% accurate content. As an expert in my field, it’s easy for me to curate and validate the content generated for me by AI, because I have the knowledge and expertise to do so. So, you can rest easy knowing that I’ll continue producing high-quality content 😉.
But what about people who don’t have a high level of expertise in the field in which they’re using AI for content generation? Even worse, what if they don’t care? What would happen when every shmoe gets access to AI and uses it to try and earn an easy buck by content generation? What happens when there’s an oversaturation of content generated by AI?Read More »This is a Call-to-Arms Against AI-Generated Content

My first job ever was delivering a magazine door-to-door in one neighborhood. It doesn’t actually make for a good story as it’s pretty bland and boring. Except maybe for how when I got my first paycheck (which was a measly 50 shekels for one morning’s work), I was so excited that my hands literally trembled and I had a stupid grin on my face that I couldn’t get rid of for the next hour or so (it’s stupid, I know, but come on, I was barely in high-school at the time).
I imagine that wasn’t very interesting, so I’ll tell you about my first real job (which was indeed a tech job).Read More »T-SQL Tuesday #150 – My First Tech Job
This month’s T-SQL Tuesday is hosted by Mikey Bronowski, and asks us to share the tools of the trade that make our job awesome.
While I do feel that the tools that make my job the awesomest are those that help me with productivity, this month’s topic is a bit broader.
I’m publishing this post a week late, I know. But that’s all the more fitting, considering the contents of this post.Read More »T-SQL Tuesday #134 – I WISH I could Take a Break
