Back to work. Same chaos as usual.
The house goes on.
I have many thoughts on ChatGPT, because it's a demonstration that the world is changing, and there are now two separate classes: those who know and those who don't. I'll have to digest this a bit more before I can say anything more deep than that.
Finally got around to creating stats for 2022. Great fun. At the end of this year: even more stats!
- Ok, so last week we had silver pans. But you know what's even more better than silver? Diamond. And, of course, there are companies nowadays that will diamond-coat your metal materials. Either with a particle coating with Nickel (which is food-safe) or with actual grown diamond. So here's my product idea for the very rich hobby cook: diamond-coated silver pans. Perfect heat conduction. Perfectly smooth silver finish without staining. Heat-resistant up to 800 °C.
And it's not even that expensive. Now I kinda want to call up suppliers and ask for quotes.

- Every Noise at Once: Every Noise at Once is an ongoing attempt at an algorithmically-generated, readability-adjusted scatter-plot of the musical genre-space, based on data tracked and analyzed for 5,998 genre-shaped distinctions by Spotify as of 2023-01-07. The calibration is fuzzy, but in general down is more organic, up is more mechanical and electric; left is denser and more atmospheric, right is spikier and bouncier.
