ask CLI

ask is a little CLI I made to interact with OpenAI's GPT-3 (text-davinci-002) from my shell/terminal. The instruction fine-tuning on that model makes it particularly ideal for just asking questions and making requests.

With this CLI, I can do something like:

$ ask 'Write a haskell function that reverses a string'
reverseString :: String -> String
reverseString = foldl (\acc x -> x : acc) []

What I Wish I'd Known About Equity Before Joining A Unicorn

What I Wish I'd Known About Equity Before Joining A Unicorn

Disclaimer: This piece is written anonymously. The names of a few particular companies are mentioned, but as common examples only.

This is a short write-up on things that I wish I'd known and considered before joining a private company (aka startup, aka unicorn in some cases). I'm not trying to make the case that you should never join a private company, but the power imbalance between founder and employee is extreme, and that potential candidates would

Extending Arel to support @> operator

I've been doing some work lately with JSON documents in PostgreSQL using jsonb columns. You can query these documents using a GIN index in PG, but the syntax can be a little cumbersome

SELECT "events".* FROM "events" WHERE "events"."body" @> '{"shift":{"user_id":2}}'

You have to construct the right side of the query as a JSON string, which is a bit annoying. So I wondered if I could adapt Arel to do the tedious stuff for me.
