Welcome to One Useful Thing

I wanted a place to translate research into advice, or commentary, in a way that was short and useful - covering One Useful Thing in each post. Due to timing and circumstance, I have very much come to focus on AI, and its impacts on work and education. So that is now the One Useful Thing of this blog.

For more about me, see my boring academic page. You might also be interested in my book. The cover image was generated by MidJourney AI v3 with the prompt “One useful thing” in pixelart style.
