In my career, I’ve had an incredible journey to get to the point where I’m at today. I remember a lot of sleepless nights spent working on projects. Often, the lack of sleep was correlated to my own lack of experience in doing whatever project I was working on.
I made it a point to always learn something new on every project I took on. If there wasn’t something that stretched my mind, the project quickly became mundane. I still try to maintain this rule, which has resulted in Tripleskinny branching out into a lot of new territory as the years have gone by. From website design to custom website plugins and dynamic projects, I’m really pleased when I look at the amount of truly incredible work I’ve had the chance to be a part of.
Today was a milestone day for me, as I gave the final green light to a project that was easily the largest in my career. I think this is one of those moments where people look around at the journey they’ve traveled, and wonder if they want to keep on going in the direction they’re headed – or pivot.
I’ve been keeping an eye on the US economy, and there’s a big part of me that’s alarmed at the direction I see things going. The middle class are being starved, while the wealth gap widens between the haves and have-nots.
Over 50,000 jobs were recently cut in the tech field, and I have a strong inclination that more jobs will be cut now that AI is starting to take the world by force.
ChatGBT has proven that AI isn’t just good…it’s eerily good.
It can write essays, write entire (working) code snippets from only a few prompts. The implications for this are greater than the invention of the cotton gin – and very similar in their function.
There has never been a more important time to pay attention to the impact AI will have on our society. If you do not innovate, you will be impacted by its presence in our world.
How will you compete with advertising that leverages predictive inputs into consumer behavior, meeting them at just the right moment they want to make a purchase decision? It’s time to start thinking about that question.
As a father, as well as entrepreneur in the field of tech, I feel like I have both one ear on the ground, and one eye ahead at the future. There’s a compelling urge in me to stay ahead of the curve and leverage innovation to provide for myself and my family, rather than be crushed in its wave.
Despite being in the midst of burnout, I feel an urge pressing me forward every day to just do one more thing to move the ball forward and build something new with my life, career and vision for the future.
