really liking this change in layout for my "writing flow" tool. it uses GPT-3 to summarize paragraphs as you're writing - giving you an abbreviated version on the right which is easily skimmable & re-orderable

This is really cool! I'd love to write in this kind of interface. Makes clear the "architecture" of the writing just by stripping it down to a summary for each paragraph. Could make it easier to simplify writing.

I also wonder if it could be useful for writers who want to translate their article into a tweetstorm. GPT-3 could generate the summary tweets for each paragraph. Went through this process last week with an article, and it was time-consuming.

This is awesome! I don’t think I quite understood it the first time you explained it to me, but I really like this in concept
