chatcraft.org is my open source project for working with GPT. It completely changed how I work. Cool thing about chatcraft is that it’s completely client-side, almost completely stateless(except for sharing) on serverside. I am also working on a project that uses LLMs to help navigate a knowledge base. Making a wrong tech choice there could kill my project. Few thoughts from that perspective: The 3 YOLOs of LLM development “You only live once” (YOLO) is a modern adaptation of the Latin phrase “Carpe diem,” which means “Seize the day.
George Holtz (geohot) just raised $5M for tinygrad and plans to sell a $15,000 Machine Learning AMD Epyc box with AMD 7900 XT video cards. At first glance, this seems like a really risky investment into a low-margin commodity hardware company. AMD can’t compete with NVidia, so how can we expect geohot to compete with NVidia on AMD hardware? Well, I’ve been following geohot for a long while. He delivers what he promises, but does it years later and on different hardware than initially promised :) Here’s the timeline of my evolution alongside George that informs my conviction:
Ah, the world of software! A place where creativity and collaboration come together to create amazing projects. But sometimes, this world can be a bit… confusing. Let me tell you a story about the frustration of open source naming, featuring our protagonist: PGVector. Once upon a time, I though that pgvector was a postgresql extension. And that langchain did not support SQL storage out of the box. After reading the source, turned out there were three things named PGVector:
I would like to introduce ChatCraft.org : a developer-focused, open source chatgpt frontend. While it’s my fav GPT UI (as it was created to make my life more convenient), it’s not so much about the features that are complete now as about the fun, collaborative journey ahead. I think we need to explore the design space of GPT-assisted collaboration to write code. The best way to do that is via open source exploration of the concept!
https://github.com/thegpvc/gpt-aria This was the most interesting prototype I’ve explored in my career so far, and I want to thank TheGP for sponsoring this project. Also thanks to Oleksandr Chugai who I partnered with on implementation and Ben Cmejla who helped with prompting. Inspiration I’ve been thinking about browser automation since the early days of my career when I worked at Firefox, where I got to work on performance problems and built things like Firefox Telemetry (Hi, HN haters!
Cloudflare Pages 😍 I got into Cloudflare pages because it lets you host static websites with all the latest optimizations conveniently and for free. Setting up a static website with a custom domain is easy, and you get the benefits of automatic SSL, CDN, and latest version of HTTP3. This is how this blog is hosted and I have a few other projects like this. I love the fact that I can get a super-fast static website up and running in a few minutes and I don’t have to worry about infrastructure details.
