Prompt of the Week: Visualize with Mermaid Code

One of the coolest things you can do with ChatGPT that most don’t know is generate code that draws a visual representation of what GPT outputs for you.

It’s called Mermaid Code 🧜‍♀️

Mermaid code let’s you create flowcharts from simple text, that gives you a feeling of the flow. GPT won’t draw it naturally, but it can either use Whimsical as a plugin or give you the code you can copy and paste to generate. 


And here’s how to do it:

Start with a normal prompt and keep it simple but add this special request to the end..

and also generate the code

You’ll get your standard output as expected and while it’s likely going to be great, you’ll want to scroll all the way down.

At the end of your output you’ll get this code window which can look daunting but hang in there with me. 

Hop over to ðŸ”— and paste that code in and watch it come to life!

You can do this for:

  • Analytical deep dives
  • Flows between systems
  • Process Mapping
  • Marketing Ideas
  • and more!

Work smarter not harder 😎 

GPT is smarter than you think and I’ll continue to show you new and more flexible ways to continue to make life easier and more streamlined.

Sora Takes our Breath Away

OpenAI, the research lab known for developing powerful language models like GPT and DALL-E, has just unveiled their latest creation – an AI system named Sora that can generate video content directly from text.

While this isn’t new AI technology, it’s blown everyone away with its incredibly life-like and detailed video output.

Sora uses a technique called diffusion to take written instructions and turn them into realistic video scenes. The videos can include complex scenarios with multiple characters and specific motions. Sora can also animate still images, extend existing videos, and fill in missing frames. The videos it creates can be up to a minute long in different styles like photorealistic, animated, or black and white.

While still early, Sora shows a lot of promise.

It has the potential to help creators bring their ideas and stories to life in new visual ways. Of course, like any new technology, there are also safety considerations to work through to ensure it’s used responsibly. OpenAI is carefully testing Sora and plans to involve artists, designers and policymakers as they develop guidelines for its use.

I’m always impressed by how quickly AI is advancing and Sora is no exception, in fact, possibly now one of the new definitions of advancement.

It will be fascinating to see where technologies like Sora go in the coming years. And for now, I’m patiently waiting for an invite to test it.

Tweets That Matter

Why this matters?

Naturally the ebb and flow of information makes a difference with accessibility of it. I’ve been in SEO now for nearly 15 years, and while I’ve seen so much, this is by far the biggest paradigm shift.

One of my largest clients which we’ve seen incredible growth over the last 5 years, for the first time is even seeing a ~20% drop in the last 2 quarters, and we’re making sense of things that simply are core changes to user behavior.

Moral of this story?

AI will change how users find and interact with your content.

Don’t give up on doing it your way, and doing it of value.
