Entering the public sphere of the internet
Relaunching personal website: What you see here is the first version I've had of my
personal website since the early 2000s or so. Ever since joining the professional world,
I've shut this down and have been a private person. I'm looking to change this, build up an online
community, and share my thoughts, ideas, and
help others solve their problems. I'm looking to build a community of like-minded people who want to
help each other out.
Getting active on social media: I've mostly abandoned Facebook for a few years now. I
am focusing on Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram. I'm looking to build up a following on these platforms,
primarily Twitter. I'm
looking to build up a following of like-minded people
who want to help each other out. I want to start engaging in more conversations to expose me to new
people and ideas, as well as build an audience for those who would
like to take advantage of my services and apps I plan to launch.
Multiple Personality Bot: Making a Discord and telegram bot that can impersonate any
famous celebrity/figure, past or present
Personal assistant app: The idea is I want one console-like app that can do everything
I need. Anytime I get an idea, note something
I need to buy, or want to remember something, I want to be able to do it in one place. I want to be able
to ask it questions, and have it either just
record the data in the appropriate place or database, or potentially take action on it. Some things it's
- Recording ideas to an ideas database
- Recording groceries to buy, chores to do, and filing them appropriately
- Spotify Companion: App/website that can improve on the base functionality. Some goals
are controls to instantly hate the song playing now, and ensure
it will never be played again, getting a better discovery mode that can both explore certain genres and
making sure to only play music you have
not heard before.
- TLDR Bot: Another Discord and Telegram bot that can summarize what you've missed in a
channel since you've been gone. It uses OpenAI API to take the
conversation, break it into smaller pieces (within the token limit), summarize each of those pieces, and
then make a full summary of all those
summaries. It's a work in progress, but it's getting better.
I spent a couple months last summer using Midjourney to create art and images. I had since let my
subscription lapse, but I've recently signed up
again. I'll be posting daily creations at my Instagram. I used a free version
that model was
not as good as the Midjourney version, so back to paying the $24+ a month.
⚾ Baseball: I'm entering my 6th year playing Over
Thirty Baseball (OTB). I used to be a good player way back in Little League,
playing 3rd and 1st base, but I decided to quit baseball back after that. More recently I learned about
adult baseball leagues in the area.
In 2018, I joined the Indians. The following year I also joined the Night Over Thirty Baseball league (NOTB), joining the Mariners.
We lost in the semis that first year, and then went on to win the championship the following 3 years!
🏐 Volleyball: It was nice finally returning to the indoor coed leagues this winter in
the Littleton Volleyball League (LVL) and
the Billerica Volleyball League (BVL). There was a 3 year hiatus on those leagues due to COVID. Now my
wife and I just opened the sand court at
our house, which we built in 2008, and more recently put lights in in 2019.
- 🎾 Tennis: Last spring, I played a lot of singles in the Tennis Northeast
League (TNE), but started getting some hip flexor issues.
I didn't play again until my winter doubles group Sunday mornings at Trull Brook Country Club. They are threatening to shut
down that facility in
favor of using the building for an indoor golf training center, but they haven't yet started working on
it, I think due to the economy. It looks
like we get to play again next season as of now too. I will probably join TNE again sometime this summer
when and if I get a little more time.
