I’m chatting with Austin for the PenPals project this month. Our second exchange, as summarized by ChatGPT, is below:

Austin reflects on his varied knowledge and potential consulting opportunities after meeting someone accidentally during a campus political debate. He discusses his broad interests, online platform experiences, and the challenges of owning” everything on the internet. Austin shares insights from his visits to Japan, emphasizing cultural nuances and artistic freedom of expression. He highlights the concerning trend of online platforms evoking anger and discusses the issue of publicized IP addresses on Chinese platforms. Jarrod, in his reply, admires Austin’s confidence, apologizes for the delay, and inquires about his potential consulting firm. He explores Austin’s shifting interests, discusses the challenges of consistency, and comments on his choice of a fox tail. Jarrod also addresses the cease-and-desist situation, expressing agreement with Austin’s perspective on third-party clients for big platforms. He concludes by asking about Austin’s plans for the end of the year.
