My keyboard prognostication on this "AI" stuff is that the Peak of Inflated Expectations is going to be suborbital and the Trough of Disillusionment is going to be subterranean.

We might need to take Tool's advice, "to keep us all occupied, learn to swim." Or to paraphrase Frank Herbert, "We've got hype sign, the likes of which God has never seen."

I'm not using ChatGPT, but I am looking to it, primarily for identifying pitfalls. As for coding, ChatGPT is only ever going to give you an amalgamation of what already exists. Someone relying on it is never going to create the next framework, language or coding paradigm. Granted, most of us are not doing anything unique while we build CRUD apps for money, but what happens when the innovators among us get trapped? Who is going to have a competitive advantage when companies are all unknowingly cranking out the same code?

Even now, the legal implications make me itch. Where's my backscratcher?
