Mapping the AI mind of Claude

I find it fascinating that we really don’t understand how AI (aka LLMs) really work!

mRNA Cancer Vaccines Show Great Hope

A lot of people were resistant to mRNA vaccines for Covid 19. I wonder if they will feel the same if it can save them from guaranteed death?

Blockchain: Innovation or Illusion

Just going to leave this here. So far the claims in the video (that blockchain hasn’t found a strong reason to exist that isn’t already handled by other, better, solutions) is holding true. Will it in the future?

A Minimalist Start Page

Got this from Paul Thurrott’s end of year wrap up. It’s a chrome extension to do a very pretty and minimal start page. It also works with Edge and should work with other Chromium based browsers.

Bonjourr – A minimalist start page.

Hey! FAQs about leaving the cloud

I’ve said for years I never want to build another data center… and this blog post validates that… but it doesn’t mean that going all in on the cloud is always the right choice.

Having a Problem Pinning Something to QuickStart?

For some reason my Documents shortcut was missing from the quickstart side panel in file explorer. No matter what I did, I couldn’t add it back (but I could add / remove others).

This trick from SuperUser.com fixed it:


There is a file in %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations, with name f01b4d95cf55d32a.automaticDestinations-ms. This file stores the information about the folders you’ve pinned. What I think is, this file somehow got corrupted on your computer, yk, since Windows 11 is still under development. When you delete this file, it is automatically remade within second — And you’ll get desktop, documents, downloads, and pictures pinned by default.

Note that the file isn’t recreated “within a second” until you do something with File Explorer – in my case I didn’t have it open at all, I opened it, and all was right in the world.

The Startup CTO’s Handbook

I’m past this point in my career but I’m hanging onto this to forward to people who might need help or guidance beyond having a chat with me! Don’t let the github link hold you back – it’s also available from all book sellers as a printed book instead of a pdf or .md file.

As of today I have not read this book, so don’t consider this a recommendation (yet).
