CES 2023 Pre-Show News

Greetings from Wynn Resorts in Las Vegas. CES® 2023 begins this week, and Las Vegas is starting to get busy. I walked the show floor (all of it) yesterday afternoon, and you can call it the "New CES." Continue Reading →

Heading to CES 2023

Greetings from Terminal 4 at JFK. I'm so excited to be heading off to CES 2023 this morning. Our tech briefings and floor tours are completely sold out (customized online versions are still available and start the week after the show), but this week is all about being live and in-person in Sin City!

Midjourney - boy looking towards the future
I have two slides at the end of most of my presentations. One is my investible theses for the upcoming year and the other is stuff that has my attention. As we head into 2023, I thought it might be fun to look at a deck from 2018 and see if I got any of it right five years ago. I'll let you be the judge. Continue Reading →

The Top 10 Stories of 2022

Top 10
As 2022 winds down, I thought it would be fun to review the 10 most popular stories by page views on shellypalmer.com. Obviously, 2022 was a transitional year for crypto, the world of decentralized finance, Web3 and the metaverse. It was also "the" year of AI. These stories reflect those trends, although some of the topics may surprise you. Continue Reading →

Who sees your tweets?

I woke up this morning and noticed that Elon was still CEO of Twitter. I went back and looked at his final poll results (see below) and noticed that while @elonmusk has 122,383,027 followers, there were only 17,502,391 votes tallied (a dismal 14.3% response rate). I have to assume that a fair amount of these votes were done by bots and multi-account trolls, which raises the question: How many people saw his tweet? Continue Reading →

Elon’s Binary Fate

Is there a 60/40 chance that Elon Musk steps down as Twitter CEO today? Who's to say? ICYMI: Yesterday, @elonmusk tweeted out a yes/no poll asking, "Should I step down as head of Twitter? I will abide by the results of this poll." By the time you read this, we may have heard from Elon. Continue Reading →

How Far Can AI Go?

Lensa - shelly palmer
If you haven't already uploaded your 10-to-20 selfies to Lensa and let it turn you into a superhero, or a rock star, or an astronaut, you should give it a try. It's fun, but it's also instructive. You'll learn about the type and quality of inputs generative AI needs in order to obtain satisfactory results, and you'll experience the workflow and process of consumer-grade generative AI. But most importantly, when the model transforms you into a mystical creature in a cosmic setting, or an anime character, or a cyborg, you will find yourself asking one question: How far can this technology go?

ChatGPT In Its Own Words

Stable Diffusion
ChatGPT has been all over the news. Last week, I asked it to help me write a blog post about Facebook – it did a very good job. Yesterday, just for fun, my son Brent and I asked it for 250 word answers to questions about history and philosophy. ChatGPT returned college-level answers. What exactly is ChatGPT? I asked it. Here's its answer to the input "a five paragraph essay describing ChatGPT in your own words." Continue Reading →
