Fuzzy brained, but starting to figure this thing out.

  • Morning Status:
    • Feeling a bit fuzzy brained ... I had a cold like 2 weeks ago and hope it's not coming back or getting a new one. I don't think I have allergies. Still. I was face-to-face with a LOT of people yesterday. So while I'm feeling only very slight off, I'm going Virtual today to see how it progresses.
  • General Status:
    • Felt much better as the day went! Maybe I'm fine?
    • Did my first coffee-chat, it was lovely
    • I might start doing some Pomodoros tomorrow
    • The presentations were delightful!
    • I also went to a manager-roundtable which was helpful for some work-stuff
  • Alloy+LLM+Rails Project:
    • Worked on some Alloy fundamentals and resources
    • Watched and made notes on an inspirational video, wrote a blog post on it
    • Slight tangent, but started poking at low-level local LLM setup to work on my next-token visualization exploration
    • I'm trying out python with llama-cpp-python as an easy and capable approach
    • I have it working enough to do some completions
    • Next I am going to work on doing token level interactive tokens, and then I'll find someone to help me visualize with d3 or something to give a hands-on feel for next-token generation
    • That is (a) fun, and (b) might lead to some insights in some of my other studies here
