My first published fiction: on the feral self-driving scooters of nyc https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/04/opinion/future-scooters-central-park.html
Hey if any of you are in NYC I'm doing a book preview event on Wed evening where you get an advance copy of my book!
(it is at a brewery in brooklyn)
Need a Halloween costume idea? Here are some ideas generated by a neural net
any of you in NYC? I'm coming to Brooklyn on 10/23 for a book preview event that sounds pretty awesome (you get an advance copy of my book if you go).
Have you heard of this game where you play as a horrible goose that wreaks mischief on the mild-mannered inhabitants of a small English village?
This neural net certainly hadn't.
So excited: my publisher is going to give away some advance copies of my book to people who draw these! Tag your drawings with #AInktober and I'll pick 3 people a week to get copies of You Look Like a Thing and I Love You.
No formal rules about this - use the #AInktober hashtag so I can find your drawing. I'll pick them according to *handwaves* criteria. Can only ship to US and Canada, sorry. But I might be able to do something for the UK next!
A.I.nktober prompts are live! Now you have your choice between the official list of reasonable #Inktober prompts, or these entirely bonkers A.I. generated lists.

I spent a good chunk of this afternoon pretending to be @janellecshane and getting a neural network to come up with mushroom names - using textgenrnn and a much longer list.
Favorite new mushrooms to follow in unlisted toots. I haven't tried drawing pictures yet but I hope future-me or someone else will take up the challenge.
Max Woolf's Google Colaboratory notebook is very easy and fun and I 110% recommend playing with it. https://minimaxir.com/2018/05/text-neural-networks/
Here are some mushrooms named by a neural net. They may be edible. For certain definitions of edible.
