Hello everyone, HAPPY NEW YEARS!
Just wanted to check in since its been a few weeks… OK about a month 😛 since my last post so lets dish!
I caught (then got over) a cold and Xavier did the same 😛
I did TONS of year end house cleaning, with a little consulting mixed in there and I even found time to built a prototype app for a friend of mine who Identified an interesting potential market niche. He is going to demo the prototype soon and if all goes well we MAY use Electron which is a desktop cross-platform build tool to deploy it, though I would say we are far from a product we can actually bring to market just yet. I hope to discuss more about this in future posts so for now I will leave this as is.
I’ve also recently started collaborating with another developer (note to self: EMAIL OLIVER!) on a set of posts centering on a bot concept he had and we should be ready to publish that soon so I also don’t want to give too much about this topic away… and Ive also since started collaborating with this same developer on my writer/coder bot, I’m building out the bot API and he will be working on a front-end interface.
In regard to the bot, I managed to build out a functional language model (Bi-Grams & Tri-Grams). I’m hoping early this year to expand it up to and including Deca-Grams by adding and improving the abstraction in the bot class.
I expect we will have some real fun with this bot in the coming year because outside of writing and code, I want to see how well my bot could learn things like music generation and perhaps chat or natural conversation… we’ll see. 😉
There was also a New Years camping trip which was relaxing but not much to tell.
Which brings me to a special announcement…
I have my first first sponsored content coming soon and I am really looking forward to telling you guys all about it! Of course I will reserve my review for the actual review post which I plan to publish in a month or two (depending on how everything goes) but I have a good reason for telling you now which I’ll get into in a moment.
It all started when I contacted Jozsef Torzan, a blogger I follow who hadn’t published in a few weeks and I was curious as to why he stopped and to see if he was okay.
Turns out everything was fine and he was deep in development on a whole series of updates and new features on his web service Bookmark Ninja (Ninja) which quite literally is the ultimate online bookmark manager and organizer!
In any case, after Jozsef described the new features I just had to try Ninja for myself and offered to do a review, Jozsef agreed and graciously extended to me a trial membership!
One of Ninja’s new features is the ability to publicly share a “tab” which is a collection of your bookmarks via a URL with anyone! This means I can give you guys a sneak peak into what I am working on by saving all my “current research” here and you also get a real world example of how Bookmark Ninja can be used, a win/win if I ever saw one! 🙂
So, for the next month or two I would like you to use the link below to go to one of my public tabs which I am updating constantly so check this link frequently if you want a sneek peek to see the kinds of things I am researching for my work and posts.
