As we send off 2023, I thought it might be a good time for one of my periodic “are the chatbots good enough to take all our writing jobs?” check-ins.

The prompt was “Write a “year in review” post about Erin Ptah’s accomplishments in 2023.”

In theory, a piece of software could scan the web, identify my online presence by username + how my accounts link to each other, analyze the content based on timestamps, and come up with an accurate summary of 2023 accomplishments. Entries on the list might include “published over 300 strips of her original comic” (findable by scanning leifandthorn.com), “wrote over 270,000 words of fiction” (findable on AO3), “posted over 150 new art pieces” (DeviantArt), “raised the funds to print a new book” (BackerKit), and “successfully forced her cat to endure a vet visit” (Dreamwidth).

Everything between the pairs of separator lines was written by the bot. Let’s see how it did!

Okay, real human talking again. Quick notes:

  • This is clearly just a list of the broadest, most generic accomplishments likely to come up in “year in review” posts
  • Amazing that “started a podcast” is so common these days, it registers as a Generic Accomplishment
  • I did publish a book! Leif & Thorn Volume 5 came out during 2023. Technically correct to say that it resonated with literally tens of readers around the world!
  • Would also agree that I advocated for social justice and inclusivity and so on, but that’s not usually a topic I bring up without, you know, examples. What kind of social justice? Who, specifically, are we including? Saying the right buzzwords is easy. Substance is harder.
  • (Not a note about the bot, this is from my browser: Firefox flagged “inclusivity” as a typo, and suggested maybe I meant “exclusivity”. If that isn’t a commentary on the state of the world…)
  • There must be a ton of references to “Erin Ptah” around the web that use “she” for the pronouns. Creator bios, random comments, the “about” page on BICP. Wonder how many times this bot offended someone by auto-generating the wrong pronouns, until it was programmed to just use “they” for everyone?

Anyway, I think our jobs are safe for now! Maybe we’ll give it another chance next year.
