…now you know, the December 2022 Edition

now you know december 2022

December 2022 was dominated by the release of ChatGPT, a revolutionary chatbot that made waves in the tech industry for its highly advanced natural language processing abilities and its ability to hold dynamic conversations with users. In fact, ChatGPT wrote the paragraph you’re reading now.

Could you tell?

With that brief foray into the impending singularity aside, here are the other notable stories in tech and art from the final month of a wild year, written (almost) entirely by our own human hands. Welcome to the latest now you know…

sam kinison on the dangers of hot pockets

We promise we’ll move on from AI, but because it was not just the biggest tech story of the month but the year – and maybe of the last years – one last note…we highly recommend spending an afternoon flipping through some Awesome ChatGPT prompts, which provides pre-written scripts you can easily customize and use to generate all sorts of fun. For example, here’s what happened when we had it generate a stand-up bit about Hot Pockets in the voice of Sam Kinison, because why not?

“Hey, have y’all ever had Hot Pockets? I know they say ‘convenient’ on the package, but they should really say ‘caution: may cause third-degree burns on mouth and tongue. I mean, have you ever bitten into one of these things? It’s like a goddamn volcano in your mouth. And don’t even get me started on the cheese. It’s like molten lava, man. I swear, I’ve seen guys take a bite of a Hot Pocket and their heads practically explode.”

Not bad, we can almost hear Sam’s voice screaming about hot cheese as we read it.
