Phil's Newsletter-mania

Previously, on Phil’s Newsletter: We dropped the numbering gimmick for newsletter titles, we launched a TV channel.

You can subscribe to this newsletter to get some perks and directly support me. Phil’s Newsletter is brought to you by paid subscribers Jessica Nelson, Jeff Powers, Vikas Reddy, David Demchuk, Ian Scott, Adam Rodnitzky, and Kat Angus. You are each, individually, the best.

Today’s edition of the OpenCV Weekly Webinar featured Roboflow CEO Joseph Nelson (no relation), Satya Mallick, and me. It was a fun discussion about Why Computer Vision Projects Fail, and at the peak we had almost 450 people in there. Wowsers. Phil’s Pro Wrestling T-Shirt Watch: 100% Chance of Rain

It has been a LONG week, cats and kittens. Your boy, me, is somehow going through it EVEN MORE than last time. This shit is annoying. I don’t have much else to say, about Phil, today. But we have other good news!

The Extra Future Discord Server Is Now Open

We have added some new channels, and have access to Stages, which are the Discord version of drop-in audio with hosts and whatnot. Mainly folks who hang out in the server talk about video games, pro wrestling, computer vision, and suchlike. You oughta come say hi.
