This is a big deal. There are a lot of big deals happening right now, it’s honestly a very exciting time to be in tech. I feel like a sailor in a tumultuous sea, and they should have sent a poet. T. S. Eliot was actually the inspiration for WordPress’ tagline “Code is Poetry” and I’m reminded of this from The Dry Salvages:
O voyagers, O seamen,
You who came to port, and you whose bodies
Will suffer the trial and judgement of the sea,
Or whatever event, this is your real destination.”
So Krishna, as when he admonished Arjuna
On the field of battle.
Not fare well,
But fare forward, voyagers.

Its really exciting times, I’m most excited to see how Stable Diffusion and similar text to image platforms are going to change how we create and search for products.
That’s a truly beautiful poem – an err… ocean of thanks for sharing it. I wasn’t too happy with some of the glitches with the source you shared for the poem or others that I could find, so I cleaned it up a bit and shared it on my blog (https://shittyphilosophy.org/2023/02/01/the-dry-salvages-t-s-eliot/) and a PDF download (https://shittyphilosophy.files.wordpress.com/2023/02/the-dry-salvages-t.s.-eliot.pdf)
