AI + Passion - Hype. Jump Aboard!

Before 2022, AI was largely hidden from the mainstream audience, lurking behind the scenes in research labs or finding its way into business products, tucked away under the hood.

That all changed when text-to-image tools like Midjourney and Stable Diffusion and large language models like ChatGPT hit the scene.

Now, AI tools are increasingly accessible to regular people without a technical background.

People like you and me.

“Who dis?”

I'm Daniel.

I can’t code. I’m not a visual artist. And I don’t produce music.

But generative AI lets me code simple games, get creative with images, and experiment with text-to-music tools.

I started Why Try AI to help others get into AI without all the hype.

I focus on AI developments, tips, and tools that:

  • Are instantly usable by the average person

  • Have little to no learning curve

  • Are cheap or free to use

“What type of content will I get?”

What I write tends to fall into the following categories:

  • Hands-on tips you can implement right away (example)

  • Beginner-friendly tools, sites, and apps to check out (example)

  • News and developments that affect the individual, not businesses or the wider industry (example)

I look for tips, sites, and tools that a casual user can easily figure out.

“How often will I get emails?”

I send out two emails a week:

  • Thursdays: Why Try AI, where I typically dive into a single topic.

  • Sundays: Sunday Rundown, where I catch you up on the week’s developments. I also do a “Sunday Showdown” battle between AI tools for my paid subscribers.

If that schedule changes in the future, I’ll make sure to announce it.

“Is it free?”

Most of it!

Thursday posts are free for everyone.

Sunday columns contain a free “News” segment and a “Sunday Showdown” segment + AI tip for paid subscribers (who also get other exclusive perks).
