Discuss books/journals/articles on my subscriber chat
Will keep posting what I read. Please add recommendations and suggestions too.
For those of you who follow me on Twitter, you know that I am pretty meticulous about documenting what I am reading. I was an early adopter of Twitter (my first post goes back to April 2009). With Elon Musk acquiring Twitter, I felt the need to move to a new platform. It’s not that I dislike Musk, it’s mainly that I believe that Twitter as a private company is answerable to no-one, and so I don’t feel that I should use a private platform. Today, I’m happy to announce that I will move my Twitter feed to a new addition to my Substack publication: the Learn With A Robot subscriber chat.
This is a conversation space in the Substack app that I set up exclusively for my subscribers — kind of like a group chat or live hangout. I’ll post short prompts, thoughts, and updates that come my way, and you can jump into the discussion.
To join our chat, you’ll need to download the Substack app (messages are sent via the app, not email). I cut and paste instructions from Substack on how to use the new chat feature below.
Here is how to get started
Download the app by clicking this link or the button below. Chat is only on iOS for now, but chat is coming to the Android app soon.
Open the app and tap the Chat icon. It looks like two bubbles in the bottom bar, and you’ll see a row for my chat inside.
That’s it! Jump into my thread to say hi, and if you have any issues, check out Substack’s FAQ.
I’ve already started my first chat thread on an interesting book I have been reading, so come on over and say hello! It will be great to know you all.
