Is Amazon About To Take Over The Bestseller Book Business?

The conventional wisdom that now governs book publishing—that things are, for the first time in a long time, not that bad—is wrong. At the very least, it overlooks the fact that Amazon has spent the last decade accumulating yet more power and leverage, and that its ambitions have since moved past simply being the world’s largest bookstore.

The Wall Street Journal's new hedcut-generating AI created monstrous portraits

Becoming important enough to merit a "hedcut" stippled portrait from the Wall Street Journal used to a be a significant honor. But on Monday, the WSJ announced that all members can now receive a hedcut courtesy of an AI that's been trained over the last year. Along the way, developers ran into some speedbumps. Baldness was one obstacle: “We had to go through and hand-tag over 2,000 photos, including a lot of bald men, so that the machine would learn what baldness is” And so was overconfidence...

Now’s the time

The Wall Street Journal pays me to go see plays each week and write about them, which is my idea of a terrific way to earn a living.
