2023 in review

Memorable year.

Motorbike accident (I survived). Did the hard work with both physical and mental therapy. Took the kids to Disneyland (fun, even on crutches). Got engaged (finally). Still co-chairing our local school governing body (difficult but rewarding). Did even more boxing.

Work was a whirlwind of projects, some with great outcomes, while also keeping our sites rock solid and blazing fast. Had a blast, again.

Spent a solid amount of time getting to grips with LLMs, especially OpenAI's models. Feel much more able to give a coherent answer about where they are and aren't valuable.

Favourite books: The Ride of a Lifetime by Bob Iger. It has one of those silly modern extra-long titles, but Traffic: Genius, Rivalry, and Delusion in the Billion-Dollar Race to Go Viral by Ben Smith was also good.

Favourite movies: Empire of Light, Scream VI (naturally), Fincher's The Killer, plus Creed III. Also rinsed Mad Men (top five TV?).

Most importantly: in difficult times, chose optimism.
