Writers vs AI

 Currently, many writers in the US are on strike. They are complaining because the movie industry changed so much that they lack predictability.

Before this change, they could work for a long-term project, but now they mostly work for short gigs and there is a huge uncertainty when the next gig will come.

This situation forces the writers to take additional jobs like Uber drivers, just to pay the bills.

They feel angry. On top of that, most sitcoms are quite predictable. Even an advanced AI can do the trick. What will happen when and AI can do your work?

This is another topic we will need to answer not only for the writers’ profession.

One way to resolve it is to ban AI altogether. To pretend there is no progress and to move on.

But you and I and the writers don’t live in a silo. If the US ban it, other countries might not. And then the movie producers will end up with a tremendous disadvantage.

We are in a brick of evolution on the way we work.

Maybe we need to embrace the new way and adapt. Like we did it so many times in the past. Then there won’t be a competition between humans and the AI.

When you know there will be a messy meeting and there is nothing you can do about it, the best thing to do is to avoid it.

To forget is the ultimate sign of lack of focus. You need to focus on what you do to be able to achieve the next level.

Twitter is a dead long live twitter

 Corporate rebranding takes time. It is carefully calibrated and represents the new directions of the company. Unless it is Twitter. Then the change can happen in a matter of a week. The domain pointed yesterday to a page with one character “X”. Today it redirects to the twitter domain and soon we might see the dead of the bird and the birth of the symbol “X”. This change will be followed carefully and we can all learn from the mistakes Elon Musk will do during this transition. He already is very famous with the mistakes he did during his first weeks in the company. Can the company survive such a transformation is another open question? There are already some competitors like Mastodon and Instagram very own Threads. But the vision of Elon Musk is to turn this app more like WeChat, the Chinese mega app that combines many features. The issue with such a combination of too many businesses and too many regulations might play a crucial role in the downfall of the company. Many times s
