❄️ Winter Wrap-up (#9)

The rise of generative AI. The fall of FTX. Elon’s chaotic purchase of Twitter. A lot has happened in the tech world in 2022.

It’s also been a year of change for me personally. I’ve started college and made many amazing memories. I met milestones - participating in a first-year snowball fight! - and created new goals.

It’s hard for me to reconcile that I’m already done with my first semester at Yale. 1/8th of college, completed so quickly. These last few months have been some of the best (and busiest) of my life.

December in particular has been wild. Between a Yule ball, finishing finals, and now catching up with friends, I’ve enjoyed the end of the semester and subsequent holiday R&R. I’m excited for the last week of break, when I’ll be headed to San Francisco for an entrepreneurial fellowship.

While I could (and many are) turning to generative AI when writing blog posts, you can trust that for the foreseeable future, these are my own words. I believe there’s something about writing - synthesizing my thoughts on topics meaningful to me - that is valuable, regardless of how many views these posts get on Twitter.

Thanks for tuning in to my musings for yet another year. See you in 2023!

🚀 Updates

  • I’m working on a major update to Friday that will fundamentally alter what it’s capable of. In short; we’re going to try and live up to the potential of a generative AI student assistant.
  • That FreeCodeCamp course I’ve been mentioning for months? I’m finally done editing it! and I hope to be able to share it with you by the next time I send out this monthly newsletter.
