I went to today’s State of the Word presentation in person (woohoo, so nice to attend in-person events once again!) and one question was about the dreaded “build-to-launch gap” where you build a website for a client and then it takes them months to post anything into the beautiful container you built for them.
There was some suggestion of using ChatGPT to automatically generate content to fill the gaps. While it’s debatable that a boring prompt will lead to boring text, there is some use in using tools such as ChatGTP to automatically write website copy, the output of prompt with just a little bit of flair can be quite inspirations.
While sitting there listening to the question and answer, I fired up ChatGPT and had the AI write something before my eyes. I unfortunately have only a screenshot of the first attempt which I showed to the amazement of the person sitting next to me as we saw the thing get typed up in real time.
