Recomendo - issue #357
The emojiton translator/ storyteller was really cool – thanks for sharing. I liked it so much I put it in my newsletter yesterday.
I’m on vacation this week and also had ChatGPT provide some recommendations. Here’s a couple prompts that I think are helpful to get the best results...
“I’m going on vacation next week so I’d like you to act as a travel guide. We are going to <insert location> for a week. What do you need to know about me in order to provide the best possible recommendations?” It asked me 7 easy questions before it gave me suggestions.
“Please list your recommendations in table format with the columns being name, type of activity, city, website url, and best time of day to visit.” I then copied and pasted this table in Google Sheets and shared it with the family. Now it’s a sortable table so we can easy find things to do.

I’ve been listening to Conversations with Tyler since he started doing them. The interview with KK was great, as they all are. Even when I don’t know the guest there is something interesting to learn.
The podcast interview with KK and Tyler Cowen was fantastic. Highly recommended!
The travel recommendations is very interesting. Does it have any biases with recommendations? Did you feel like the recommendations were good quality?
Love the large print version, especially.
The Paperwhite 11 Kids version - with cover, extra insurance and free kids’ books - is often the same price as the “normal” version. Yet it’s exactly the same device, and the kids stuff can be ignored or turned off. It’s rather fascinating why anyone buys the “normal” version...
