It's hard to resist passing along GPT-3 stories. They have "stunned the 'developer twitter'." There's the one where a student created an absolutely fake blog that ran for two weeks. "He retired the project with one final, cryptic, self-written message. Titled 'What I would do with GPT-3 if I had no ethics,' it described his process as a hypothetical.
