The add-on we’ve been waiting 100k years for
What if you had an add-on for your product that let it do:
- general research and documentation
- sentiment analysis
- personality analysis
- code generation/editing
- configuration assistance
- pattern matching/vetting
- editorial assistance
- project management
- questioning & ideation
Well you do, you just have to figure out the right way to add it.
To do so, it is crucial to become good at writing custom add-on code – ie. mastering your human language of choice. Which in turn involves mastering the art of providing a series of questions in a sequence, with context as needed, like Socrates, any artful purveyor of the 5 Whys, and surely, our homo sapien ancestors who first started to develop modern natural language technology 50k to 100k years ago.
Anyway, you guessed it – the add-on is LLM technology and the proof of concept is ChatGPT.
Jonathan’s right: Steve Job’s “next big thing” is here.
And yes, I left content generation out on purpose – that’s better done by humans, at least if you’re interesting in getting new ideas out of your writing, and sparking them in your readers.
