ChatGPT will keep the mediocre, mediocre. The less motivated will accept whatever it offers and will never attempt a better solution, or accept there is "no solution" (when in fact there is; it just needs exploring).


"Before entering on an understanding, I have meditated for a long time, and have foreseen what might happen. It is not genius which reveals to me suddenly, secretly, what I have to say or to do in a circumstance unexpected by other people; it is reflection, it is meditation." - Napoleon I

Straw Poll

Were you affected by the geomagnetic storms this past weekend?
Communication disruptions, electrified pipes, random unexplained blue-screens in Windows - the list of effects is terrifying.
