Prompting for maximum impact (and why that is a bad idea)
Having great AI at your disposal is one thing, but someone showing you - with ridiculously good, detailed, step by step examples - how to *use* that AI is insanely helpful. You're doing an amazing service to humanity, if I may say so, with your blog. Thanks Ethan.

Very impressed by the Python code example!
Ethan I used ChatGPT to produce a term sheet in my undergrad new venture finance class. I am fully embracing your advice to use Chat as a colleague - both in research and teaching - and collaborating with students in class with the tools. Other professors should be doing this!
AI is a very cool tool for content creation. And it's obvious to me that as long as humans are working with it, there will be mistakes. That's why we need to come up with forced stopping levers to avoid fatal mistakes.
Sooner or later it's going to be better than before
This is very helpful. Does the paid version of GPT4 allow for longer text? I’ve been experimenting with the free GPT to create a Stephen King clone to beta read my novel and offer feedback, but it can’t even do a whole chapter well, only a single scene.
I am drawn toward the one sentence method of writing, but without the use of AI. 😐
I have to admit that I got squirreled by the emoji chess game -- particularly the facts that the board is supposed to be 8x8, but the setup only included 6 pieces in a row. Was that “intentional”? Does this game have a whole flanking element that chess is missing?
Thank you for sharing all this. I have also been following your tweets on the topic. Interesting that Bing can find answers in creative mode, but in precise mode, it answers that it does not have access to the information. Wondering also, when using Bing coupled with Word, are you using a special version ? Have not been able to have Bing read Word in office365.com
