Love.Law.Robots — 25 November 2021 (Thanksgiving!)
We are almost coming to the end of the year and it's that time where we count our chickens and our eggs. We still have a month ago before the end of 2021 so I will leave my plans for 2022 for another post.
Instead, I would like to record my thanks to the subscribers to who I get the opportunity to regularly send emails. It's always nice to attach a name to the work you do, so you are doing lots to keep me going!
I am embarrassed for sure, but I have prepared a little survey for subscribers. It's your chance to give me feedback on how Love.Law.Robots is doing and to mould what it will be like in the future.
What I am reading now
- I regularly look out for Humble Bundles. I like to donate to charity. However, I also find interesting odds and ends too, like royalty game music to use in my next presentation and fantasy RPG guidebooks. More commonly, you will find various computing books. I am spending time readingWeb Scraping with Python, 2nd edition. It ain't cutting edge, but it's improving my confidence with structuring my projects and using scrapy. Hopefully, I will have something to show for it soon.

- GPT-3 is generally available now. The language model that made everyone fear for their livelihoods have removed their waitlist. You can sign up and use the models for free for 3 months or 300,000 tokens (roughly words), whichever comes first. GPT-3 generates text, so it's probably best used for writing. Advanced uses (I haven't tried) include generating contract clauses and submissions. I find the safety guidelines very interesting as well. Do check it out!
- I attended the Jones Day Chair of Commercial Law at Singapore Management University lecture delivered by Professor Dan Katz last week. It was interesting to hear about LegalTech in Singapore and the slide deck is available for you if you missed it. Hopefully, it's the last time I am going to hear COVID being used as a generational marker.

My post on using docker-compose and traefik is quite charming now that I look back at it. The server is still dutifully running docassemble and others. However, I now have a new problem: I have three computers running docker – a legacy desktop, a NAS and a Raspberry PI. I have always wondered whether I am making full use of them. It's only natural to expand my cloud computing knowledge. I believe that a docker swarm post is the natural follow up.
