Curious Minds - February 27, 2023
February is already over and forever a quote comes to mind: "Remember how far you've come, not just how far you have to go. You are not where you want to be, but neither are you where you used to be." Just a couple of months ago I was trying to figure out where to live and in a whirlwind of travel. I’m now fairly situated and on entirely new projects I am working on. How’s your year going?
Inflation has been all the rage for the last year+, but more recently the price of eggs has been hitting headlines. Someone feeling punny created Eggspensive, a website tracking egg prices throughout the US.
Something a bit more factual
One of the main issues with a lot of the new AI’s (Chat-GPT, Microsoft Bing Chat, Google Bard) is that they’re notorious for giving out false information. They will even generate fake links to “support their cause” (this is more true with Bing Chat & Bard). To fight this, Perplexity.ai offers a similar interface except that it will provide you sourced links and references for anything you ask it.
In case you’re like me and don’t know what acrophobia is, it’s the fear of heights. In the Sharjah Mountains, United Arab Emirates (UAE) they’ve created the Floating Retreats.
Each year I try to go to new countries, and UAE has not been on my list, but now I’m thinking about it.
Something I’m pondering
"Great leaders know how to step into uncertainty and bring the certainty to the situation."
- Tony Robbins
Something I wrote
I’ve been pretty heads-down investing for much of February where both my business partner and I presented on a topic called “Weighted Averages” at an investment fund conference in Salt Lake City. If anyone would like to read it over and give feedback on its clarity and simplicity (too little? too much?), it would be greatly appreciated: Investing Fundamentals: Probabilities (Free Tool).
I hope you have a great week and are ready for March! I’m curious, if you’ve been here a while, what have been your most enjoyable aspects of this newsletter?
