In the meantime, smaller cities like Tulsa, Oklahoma are actually paying distant staff to relocate. Additionally below dialogue: a D&D-inspired AI picture generator, the search engine designed to make builders extra environment friendly, and 3D-printing initiatives to enhance your oral hygiene. 

Episode notes:

San Francisco’s Mayor London Breed says a seismic shift (positively not an exodus) is underway as tech staff proceed working from dwelling and firms like Salesforce (town’s largest non-public employer) scale back workplace house. Breed says San Francisco misplaced $400 million in tax income in 2021, as firms shuttered places of work or moved to different cities. San Francisco places of work haven’t been this empty since 2009.

The Wall Road Journal reports that 71 cities (and counting) are providing money grants and different incentives to lure distant staff from Silicon Valley to, say, Tulsa, Oklahoma.

If you happen to’re a member in good standing of the Hellfire Club (or any D&D group), try the free AI image generator from AI Dungeon.

Customizable open search platform You.com debuts YouCode, a specialised search engine meant to extend developer effectivity. You.com permits customers to deploy AI to customise the sources they wish to see, the order wherein outcomes seem, and the way non-public outcomes are, reports VentureBeat.

Matt is the proud proprietor of a brand new tongue scraper (TMI?), and Ben is 3D-printing him a personalized holder. What are buddies for?
