Stephen Wolfram explaining ChatGPT 

And from February, Stephen Wolfram’s tome on ChatGPT. This is definitely not gentle, but also very good.

Large language models, explained with a minimum of math and jargon 

High-level introduction to how LLMs work.

I’m not sure this is really a ‘gentle primer’, but I do think this is a very good introduction.

Rethinking Window Management 

An approach to window management unlike anything I’ve seen. I really like the idea of a mosaic as a sort of multi-dimensional tiling.

Joining GAN Integrity

On Monday, 1 August 2023, I joined GAN Integrity as a tech lead.

GAN Integrity are certainly not a household name, but are a leading global provider of compliance software to large enterprises.

For me this also marks a change, not just in employer but also in job description: This will be my first entry into management. This is something I’ve been looking actively for for quite a while, and I’m really happy to be taking that on at GAN.

This is Simply Jonathan, a blog written by Jonathan Holst. It's mostly about technical topics (and mainly the Web at that), but an occasional post on clothing, sports, and general personal life topics can be found.

Jonathan Holst is a programmer, language enthusiast, sports fan, and appreciator of good design, living in Copenhagen, Denmark, Europe. He is also someone pretentious enough to call himself the 'author' of a blog. And talk about himself in the third person.
