web scraping + gpt3. given a company name we scrape google for relevant urls and then scrape those urls for info. persisting each step in case google blocks, so we can switch IP and carry on. once we accumulated our corpus, feed into openai to generate company categories and descriptions.

# Load your API key from an environment variable or secret management service
openai.api_key = os.getenv("OPENAI_API_KEY")

swyx's autohotkey circa 2014. i used this thing extensively from 2010-2014. In one case it was at least responsible for automating away part of my own job.

View workflow apis

now that we have a cohesive look at workflow APIs, some issues remain:

  • createActivityHandle isnt really a handle, in the way that createWorkflowHandle and createChildWorkflowHandle are. it returns a function that you call.
    • users are confused by the proxy destructure which a very fancy way of doing type safety and ensuring consistent naming
  • defineSignal/Query dont add much value since they just create an object
    • extra setListener api that is doing the real work, basically 2 different functions branching by def.type

just taking another crack at api design.

simplified query and signal api
