Let's teach each other how to use ChatGPT for work
These tools are coming to our daily work. Let's explore how together.
Help me out! In advance of my upcoming Social Media Breakfast session "How AI Tools & Advancements are Changing the Game for Marketing" on Friday, June 23, I want to hear from YOU about how you're using new tools like ChatGPT and more. 😎
Are you excited or anxious about this technology? How are you using it today? What do you want to learn?
Let’s help teach each other, ask the hard questions, and explore how to wade through and lead through this fascinating time in marketing.
The event will be in Minneapolis on June 23 and tickets are available now.

The Axios - The Harris Poll brand reputation rankings are out this week. I don’t know how Kohls's continues to rank so high.
Microsoft put Bing into ChatGPT after putting ChatGPT into Bing. Giving generative A.I. access to the live world wide web will be transformative.

“We need to stop saying metaverse,” says the Navy in this report about how Space Force is using the metaverse to predict the effects of spaceport congestion. The word is so misunderstood that it can trigger budget cuts. And here I thought “next-generation” was overwrought.
Good read here about the state of online aesthetics and the cultural tones beneath them — “no one is just one thing; the best thing to be is an amalgamation of many different aesthetics, and to be constantly learning and growing. It’s what young women like Gia are starting to focus on—not on which aesthetic they are, but on who they are.”
This is a good read about Gen Z acting as if they could blow up online at any time even if they don’t have any followers — “a generation that is increasingly posting on social media in the manner of professional influencers: sharing daily routines, pitching or unboxing products, modeling clothing and advertising personal Amazon storefronts. These videos are often viewed as cool and entrepreneurial by peers (and sometimes by bemused parents). They can also lead to free stuff and extra cash.”
With Dooce’s passing, a lot of millennial moms are putting thought into the mommy blog craze of the 2000s. It has been the subject of lots of spouse and friend convos in my circle lately. And stories like this from the kids’ perspective is a whole other lens.
Local Minneapolis artist catswilleatyou (aka Matt Semke) celebrated 6,000 consecutive days of creating and posting new art this week. Beeple gets a lot of credit for his streak, but Matt is crushing him.
