It’s a bit crazy how artificial intelligence has suddenly become quite mainstream. The technology has been around for years, but now it’s all the rage, with so many apps and tools announcing the addition of “AI” to the feature list. I feel like most of this is due to the rise of ChatGPT and other large language models, especially now that the technology has reached a point of general adoption.
Last month, I picked up Building a Second Brain from my local library after seeing the book recommended on a number of sites. My relationship with Obsidian had been getting pretty dusty, and I wasn’t certain if it was that useful of a tool, especially the way I had been using it.
A few months ago, I got the itch to learn a new programming tool. Perhaps there was a blog post I read or something like that (I really can’t remember), or maybe my subconcious brought up memories of a former coworker who was an avid Vim user.
It has been a long time since I took a trip out of state, whether for work or for personal reasons. I’ll be heading out soon for a short personal trip, which means making a list and checking it twice. In the past, I’ve dabbled with a packing list app for my iPhone, but that never took off, likely due to the infrequency of my travel. When it comes to list, it’s hard to beat the old pen and paper.
