AI, find me some work…
I was asked by my wife to describe what I do so that she can send it to a friend who is apparently finding people for companies in Japan. It’s no secret that I have a love affair with GPT4.
So I sat down and gave GPT as much context as I could, adding a few more bits and pieces as I thought about them. Here’s the first version. Quite good, I think, couldn’t have written it better myself.
