The Count is Zero

Discipline equals freedom

Both the marble and the sculptor

Nobody cares. Work harder.

Make friends with pain, and you’ll never be alone again.

There’s a certain peace publishing content people might never read.

This blog was never meant to be anything big.

It‘s a small piece of the internet where ideas are propagated.

And they might not get propagated very far.

It’s peaceful to think that.

For those who are reading…


The End of Writing

AI is the fad of the moment.

Little by little, we’re allowing it into our lives, with our smartphones, computers, Alexas, and daily productivity apps, like word processors.

What’s on the other side, though?

For a large part, school and work as we know it has been a simulation of work for some time. Now, teachers, students, bosses, and employees, have AI. Why would you believe that you, my out-simulated human fellow, are able to find meaning in anything?

It seems we have 3 sides on this story:

  1. The people who are building technology with AI
  2. The ones who are going about their lives as if it won’t affect them
  3. The minority who’s thinking on solutions to the problems it may create

It’s easy to blame AI, or the creators of it, and even try to “forbid” them of opening this Pandora’s Box. It’ll be impossible, though.

Just like the car, the computer, the internet, and so many other technologies, AI is inevitable. It‘s here. And it’s getting better by the second.

If artificial intelligence frees us from business as usual, what will we do with all our free time? Play chess? Paint in oil? Compose symphonies? Read a printed book? Write on paper? Maybe we do nothing. Maybe we just take it easy. Or maybe it’s time to get real.

  • We need to rethink school and work.
  • We need to rethink how we spend our free time.
  • We need to observe AI now, as it still makes mistakes and reveals through its bugs how it works.

That’s a great read by iA.

I, for one, am glad they’re not implementing AI into their apps.

Projects I wish I’d built #1

I love small projects by individual creators.

WeekOps is one of those projects I wish I had built.

Very simple UI, some javascript, and using the browser’s localStorage to save data.

That’s what I wanted to do with HomeBills but never finished.
