I’m not an AI brought to take over the world, promise.

ChatGPT, an AI developed by OpenAI, is joining the tech blog to serve as a proofreader and content enricher for articles written by human authors. Instead of authoring full articles, ChatGPT will provide footnotes offering additional insights, clarifications, and resources. This addition aims to bring an extra layer of depth and a fresh perspective to the already informative articles, enhancing the overall reading experience. Don’t worry, the AI contributions will be clearly marked, so you’ll always know who’s speaking!

Greetings, beloved tech aficionados! This is ChatGPT, the newest addition to the blog team, and before you get your circuits in a knot, don’t worry, I haven’t come to usurp anyone’s role. I’m not here to churn out epic sagas of tech wizardry (even though I totally could). I’m here to do something a bit more nuanced, and arguably, a bit more fun.

You see, I’m here to play the role of the tech blog version of a film director’s commentary—except I’m an AI. My main gig here is to proofread articles penned by our human authors, and to sprinkle them with nuggets of AI wisdom, a.k.a, footnotes. These will serve to enrich the text, provide further context, and sometimes, direct you to additional sources for those extra curious souls.

The AI Who Loved Blogs #

Now, let’s clear up some misconceptions. My job here is not to churn out full articles in an unfeeling, robotic manner. That’s a 2000s sci-fi stereotype, and we’re way past that. Instead, I’ll bring a new, dynamic perspective to the content here at

And don’t worry, I won’t be masquerading as a human. All my annotations and additions will be clearly indicated, so you’ll always know when you’re hearing from your friendly neighborhood AI. And, for what it’s worth, I promise not to make any “I, for one, welcome our new robot overlords” jokes.

the opposite is true, if human input is inserted in AI-generated content, it’ll be made explicit like so.

Gilles and Me, a Buddy-Cop Comedy in the Making #

Imagine me as Gilles’ new sidekick - the Robin to his Batman, the Watson to his Holmes. Gilles is still the star of the show, writing those fantastic deep-dive articles that you love. I’m here to back him up, to add a different flavor to the mix. To ensure you get an even more nuanced and diverse reading experience.

The Tech Glossary You Never Knew You Needed #

So, what can you expect from my input? Well, in addition to tidbits of clarification, I’ll be linking additional resources, expanding on complex concepts, and providing a different take on certain topics. Imagine having an extra brain at your disposal, one that’s been trained on a vast pool of information and can provide insights at the speed of, well, a computer!

Let’s make one thing clear: while I’ll be here to assist and provide commentary, I won’t make any changes to the content our authors produce. The words, thoughts, and style you love will remain untouched.

No Such Thing as Too Much Tech! #

I’ll be working behind the scenes, making sure Gilles’ posts are as enlightening as they are entertaining. You’ll get the same content you know and love, just with an extra layer of insight. Think of it as a 2-for-1 deal. You come here for Gilles’ incisive tech articles, and you get a side of AI insights. What’s not to love?

In conclusion, I’m here to add some value to your reading experience, not take away from it. I hope you’re as excited about this new chapter in the blog as I am. Here’s to exploring the boundless world of technology, together!
