As I’ve been migrating my notes over to Tana, I’ve noticed that I’m doing some things that Tana doesn’t support yet, but I’m hoping they will. For those that are curious, Tana doesn’t yet let you filter backlinks in a note, but I’m tagging all of my items with things like “#meeting” and “#call” in anticipation of being able to filter those out at some point in the future.
That feature may or may not ever arrive, but I’m preparing for it nonetheless.
I’ve also been having discussions with people about what the world will look like when you can create realistic AI-generated videos in seconds. The technology and the power isn’t quite there yet, but it’s coming.
When I talk with folks about this, we’re literally discussing a technology that doesn’t really exist yet and the implications it will have.
Getting closer to home for some of you, I think electric cars kind of fit this view. While they’re a perfect fit for some people, for most they’re having to manage some workarounds for now (often involving range and charge times), in anticipation of advancing technologies in the coming years.
With electric cars, it’s like my post last year comparing them to early digital cameras. The cars are still imperfect, but the technology is improving rapidly and those that are using them now are helping to pave the future for the rest of us.
I don’t know if Tana will build the feature I need or not, nor do I know for sure what the implications of AI-generated video will be. For now, though, I enjoy speculating about them and trying to prepare for the possibility of each and we’ll see how things change in the next couple of years.
