  • The Clarkesworld Magazine is being plagued by sci-fi stories written by ChatGPT. If asked about the irony of this statement, it can even synthesize a coherent response.

    Imagine a virtual world where there is no proper way to distinguish if someone is interacting with a human or a bot. If Meta and OpenAI were to join forces, it's not too far-fetched really.

    It would also make for an interesting character study on what it really means to be a human. And if probabilistic models have more humanity than most of us.

    What a time to be alive.

  • I legit overheard someone spell their name on the phone with, "P as in pneumonia."

    Wonder what kind of a headspace you have to be in to come up with that.

  • Hot take.

    When Ozymandias said, "Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!" he was really talking about his blockchain as a service startup.

    It checks out because Shelley then proceeds to describe what happened to the investors.

  • A fan-fiction set between the events of the Avengers (2012) and Endgame.

    The protagonist is a college grad navigating life in New York as aliens invade, people disappear/reappear and there's somebody in the neighborhood discovering they have superpowers every other week.

  • Writing a people pleaser character is surprisingly easy because the only character inconsistency is consistent behavior with other people #showerthoughts

  • Possible content warning and spoilers for Better Call Saul.

    Spoiler! :

    Better Call Saul is one of the most satisfying shows for any creative enthusiast. They pick some of the best characters we have already seen and reverse engineer their journey from destination to the early beginnings.

    The characters of Chuck and Howard are especially just spectacularly written. You don't see too many Howards in mainstream shows. On the surface, he is a somewhat snobbish generationally wealthy lawyer. Beneath that vain surface, he is a genuinely caring guy who keeps getting stuck in the seemingly unending conflict between two brothers. He didn't deserve what he got. He was trying to get better. He was trying to make things right. He didn't deserve to die.

    I haven't felt this frustrated since Hank Schrader was taken down by Walt. But at least Hank was a DEA agent. He knew what he'd signed up for. Howard's death just hits differently.

    Which brings me to Kim Wexler. To think this doe-eyed, brilliant, hardworking lawyer turns into this monster who is aroused by taking down her mentor. The saddest part is Chuck and Howard both saw through Jimmy and Kim's facade but couldn't do anything about it.

    I could go on, but really there aren't enough shows where dissecting a character motivation leads you into a seemingly unending rabbit hole. The love and care with which the writers have crafted this universe is inspiring. That's the kind of writing that stays with you for years. This has been such a glorious watch. Hoping they go out on top!
