@rossgoodwin@johnmaeda I increasingly frame AI as a set of tools enabling a new and better way of writing software; from that perspective, I'd propose the existing field of computational design is going to grow and spread in scope as it is applied to new domains.
Just had a fascinating chat with @REAS about the origins of the term "creative coding". He traced it back to @johnmaeda's book Creative Code (published in 2004), which Google ngram seems to confirm, but are there any meaningful earlier occurrences?
#CityU conferred honorary doctorates on two distinguished persons, Professor Evelyn L. Hu and Dr John Maeda, on 4 November in recognition of their significant contributions to education and the well-being of society. bit.ly/3T1Fg9z
“In earlier research, Amit and colleagues found that people tend to think visually about things that are close to them (temporally, socially, or geographically), but use inner speech when contemplating far-off things.” —@Harvardnews.harvard.edu/gazette/story/…
I met @johnmaeda in the late 90’s. He gave me advice that I took to heart.
I didn't see him for 20+ years.
Recently, I got to interview him for my podcast "The Creative Mindset." Have a listen (in JP; EN to follow soon):
Introducing the @sequoia Gen AI Market Map!🌎 We’ve decided to map out this emerging frontier, thanks to all the contributions and feedback we’ve received.
This space is moving quickly – this map is a living document, so keep the suggestions coming! Who else should we include?0
Even with data that @JLin7 was the fastest, people like Daryl Morey and the Knicks simply refused to believe it could be true. This is why narratives are harmful and dangerous. We made @38ATTHEGARDEN to remind people not to let those narratives hold you down. From Michael Lewis:
Incredible that in this day and age, I still hear people say that women aren’t as technical because they have good soft skills. Like it’s a zero sum game.
The most successful people are technical AND great people leaders.
Neither has to come at the expense of the other.
My side gig at work is basically Chief No Code Officer and we have an entire team dedicated to our alt stack (biz sys) who build internal tools for ops teams. We still have an eng team dedicated 100% to internal tools, though. twitter.com/GergelyOrosz/s…
Releasing our first @spawning_ tool to help artists see if they are present in popular AI Art training data, and register to use our tools to opt in and opt out of AI training
I think we have created a way to make this work out well for everyone
“1) culture isn't created or changed overnight — it takes time and dialogue. 2) strong subcultures and cultural forces are created by a catalog of activity, not a single moment. 3) cultural shifts are often outcomes of collective creation.” twitter.com/metalabel_xyz/… via Joy Howard
