Since ChatGPT went public on November 30, 2022, the world seems to have changed. My LinkedIn timeline was flooded with posts about ChatGPT and its applications. As is usually the case with new things, the timeline was also flooded with self-proclaimed experts. It looks like everybody is focusing on prompting though, which, although quite useful, puts you in the "user" seat. Well, I was never too much of a user.
As I continuously try to learn more about, almost everything, I decided to take an Online Degree in Blockchain offered by Blockchain council. Although the delivery method could be better, and the structure of the training could be simplified, overall it was a positive experience, which helped me understand better basic and advanced Blockchain concepts, as well as some of the crypto currencies.
I enjoy learning new things. Everyone who knows me can attest to that. I also have fun taking tests and quizzes. So it's not a surprise that I always try to find ways to combine these two activities.
I have pursued one academic degree per decade (approximately). I got my BSc in 1993, my MSc in 2000 and my MBA in 2007. Maybe it's time for another academic degree, but it's getting more and more difficult due to time constraints and, of course, the fact that I'm getting old. Not to mention the cost.
