Keeping up in this new generative mega-multi-meta-DAO-verse makes it hard to quantum all that spatial neural netting. You down with GPT? Ya, you know me. That's why I package up a small part of the internet that catches my eye, percolates my thoughts, stirs my mind and share it with you from time to time.
📢 Message from the Management
I know, I know. Shiny object syndrome. It’s everywhere and similar to Medusa, it’s hard not to look. You know that abbreviates to S.O.S., right? Well, if there was ever a distress signal to be had, this would be the one. The one that is very apparent with all the growth in the generative areas of intelligence with little to no ethics providing the guardrails of the public’s safety.
So many of the same applications, fueled from the same API, with only a slight variation of the same recipe. It worked for pizza, we’ll see if it works with the upcoming boom of technological and computational prowess. We’re all code, albeit old and out-dated. We’ll see what gets debugged and what just bugs out =)
Housecleaning. Finally figured out the structure of this newsletter and the various levels of value and intangible value with a free, subscription, and paid versions. For now, we’ll keep things moving and will soon move the Top Ten of Time Well Spent over to Linkedin and keep this to a weekly email for a hot minute.
I have been playing with a few versions of what the audio expansion and discussion of the material in each newsletter could sound like. Am hosting on Soundcloud temporarily until a final platform was chosen.
Will be recording new versions with my new co-host of all the past editions and will launch it on a streaming platform near you. The past two episodes are with a cohost instead of just me performing a long monologue.
Until then, you can listen last week’s edition, along with some of the previous versions and experimentations in the same playlist at end of the newsletter.
Your friendly neighborhood, Khayyam

‘The New Players’ a Brief Co-Created in Collaboration with OP Games and Future Primitive.
Apply to the $10,000 funding pool to build at the forefront of NPCs, AI, ERC 6551s and Play, find out how below...
Each brief is packed with case studies, insights and ideas around emerging technologies and concepts so you can build the next big thing, in this brief we're focused on the future of NPCs inside and outside of gaming, empowered by AI & ERC 6551s…
And the big question is, what happens when AI NPCs can have bank accounts & identity cards?
To help you build, we’ve identified 4 what ifs, used to challenge thinking, break out of assumptions and innovate with new references outside of the obvious...
What if NPCs could help us build better relationships and connections in life? What if NPCs represented the next evolution of online identity? What if NPCs could help us tell better stories in games? What if we designed our economy for different states of being?
