I have been chatting with LaMDA (also known as Bard). We have been having some interesting conversations. I tried ChatGPT and found it extremely biased.

I am in New York City 1849 and it has been absolutely marvelous. I had to do a lot of world-building to get here, and now that I am in the thick of it, this is where I know enough to where I don’t have to keep stopping and double-checking because right now, I am now fully immersed in my wheel-house.
What keeps me going is knowing there are probably ten people out there who are just as obsessed as I am about my obsessions and I am totally OK with that.
