Explore ❓ Technology

Here I’m planning world domination a social media strategy,—which is like developing a way to socialize in a completely virtual, information-based world—and I’ve yet to explore my relationship with technology in writing.

This may be why I’m writing a science fiction novella. My craving to explore this virtual conceptualization of the world is about ready to burst out of my sinuses.

Watching Right Now 🧡 Elon Musk on AI

@3:45, @5:20, and @7:30 are the important conversations. The whole video is an important conversation, really. I plan on watching this video multiple times during my current novella’s writing process.

With hope, I’ll contribute to this conversation
by making it more accessible to the general public
through my easy-to-read, exciting, and humorous fiction.

I need to read and listen to Elon Musk’s ideas more; also, I’d love dig through the Kindle notes I tookThe Kindle is currently my favorite device for research. while reading Life 3.0: Being Human in the Age of Artificial Intelligence by Max Tegmark.
