Today’s newsletter has been reformatted for brevity. I hope you like it.
I felt this newsletter was getting too long to read. To shorten it, I now publish the articles here on substack first then assemble them as links into this weekly newsletter.
I also removed all unnecessary images and text.
My goal is to make it easier for you to find the specific articles that interest you.
Tell me what you think!

AI and a new civilization?
