Weekly #4 - Xmas in Florida
Been tinkering on building a tool that transcribes podcasts to make them more skimmable. I’m using OpenAI’s Whisper to do the transcriptions and working with a freelancer to clean it up.
I posted a couple of the final results to Reddit got a lot of positive results. Take this post:
3 really positive comments
But then this happened:
The moderators of the Lex Fridman Podcast removed my post.
I’m not sure what the next move is. I could continue posting these and hope they start to pick up organically. Or try working w/ the moderators or pivot and work on something else. To be continued :)
Tried learning how to skim board this week:
Run 2+ miles a day
❌ - Only missed running Saturday but overall success
Play an ∞ amount of Kings of Tokyo (board game) w/ the family
✅ - Check!
Push on side project idea validation and post 2 tests to Reddit
✅ - Posted 3 Reddit posts
No carbs or sugar (been eating a ton of sweets and want to detox)
Write 1 story for toastmasters
Decide weather to keep pushing on ReadablePods or pivot
(Push on one idea for 3 weeks and then do a reevaluation to decide to keep pushing or to pivot. MOVE FAST)
Figure out Bible study situation
