My Growth in 2023

Premium subscribers get around 4 posts a week, that’s 16 a month for $8.00, so $0.50 an article, less if you take a yearly plan. Many of the articles are booked for premium readers or the majority of the article is.

Over a year that’s over 200 articles for $75. So this saves a lot of professionals time to follow if you truly are a hard-core A.I. enthusiast (like I consider myself to be).

My interest in futurism extends beyond just A.I., I also like to cover:

  • Quantum computing

  • Startups

  • Emerging technology trends

  • Venture Capital and investing trends

  • Breaking news in business

Thank for your Testimonials. My new paid subscribers having given me some encouragement that I must be doing something right.

I started this Newsletter due to my passion for all things artificial intelligence, machine learning and as it intersects with business, society and technology. Typically posts read as a blog article, and not like a Newsletter with tons of links.

I wanted to create a space for A.I. enthusiasts, and not just another generic “This Week in A.I.” which Substack already had.

It’s been a lot of work, but also rewarding as I cover A.I. stories from around the web, breaking news and some Op-Eds and special coverage all curated in one place.

  • Writing on Substack is currently my only source of income, so I depend on your support to pay my rent, food and other worldly expenses.

  • This Newsletters covers A.I. at the intersection of news, business and technology. I cover startups, paper summaries, op-eds, trending news from around the web and so much more.

  • Premium users get my full coverage, which means at least 50% more content.

Who am I?

  • I am a Futurist in Residence at Substack with a leaning to accountability journalism (anti-monopoly) perspectives. My Newsletter is too young to be recommended by Substack’s influencers or featured by Substack, so I’ve grown it from a list of zero myself.

I’m at the core an independent journalist with strong opinions about the future of A.I. I don’t pretend to cover my topics objectively, though at times I do. I don’t ponder content you will read in 30 seconds for several hours publishing once a week, I try to keep track of the fields I’m interested in.

There’s nothing really like my coverage of this topic on the internet today, in 2022.

  • If you are an A.I. startups or B2B potential partner looking to reach my audience of over 8,000 free subscribers check out my offer here. I do work with corporate sponsors. Though rarely and only when I see their business as syncing with a particular topic I actively want to write about.

  • Many organizations also enable the expensing of business Newsletters under learning and development budgets or ‘education’.

This Newsletter also recently got its own Twitter account:

Writing is my full-time job, I scrape by via contributions from paid subscriptions to my Newsletters, freelance gigs, the occasional Sponsored Ad and so forth. It’s a humble living, but rewarding writing about those topics of existential intrinsic interest.

Request for Free Year Subscription

If your Email has a history of reading my free articles and clicking on links and you are from a developing country, I’m more than open to give you a free (comp) one year subscription. Just send me a message and explain your circumstances.

Especially if you live in Africa, South America or Asia or are a student or have a lack of financial means. The U.S. dollar exchange doesn’t make subscriptions very affordable in many cases and I’m sensitive to that.

This is a pro-accessibility Newsletter.

Please Give Testimonials

It turns out, it’s really hard to grow a Substack Newsletter.

Expense this Letter

Template to expense this letter to your Manager and Learning and Development (education) fund. 

A.I. Supremacy (what follows is a template you can use in an Email to your manager:

For Software Engineers, Tech workers and Individual Contributors

Hi [name of manager],

I’d like to expense a subscription to the Newsletter A.I. Supremacy. It’s a weekly newsletter for A.I. enthusiasts, software engineers and technology workers in generational and is a resource that would help me get even better at my job and keeping up with the news around emerging tech, A.I. and trending topics. 

As a subscriber, I get in-depth issues with actionable curation, information and stimulating topics each week and tools, resources and ideas that can help with my job. The newsletter covers topics like emerging A.I. in various industries, trending A.I. products and startups, summaries of the most important aspects of A.I. ethics, technology competition and global issues related to emerging tech. 

It costs just $80/year ($8/month). If it helps with inspiring, informing and guiding with just one approach that helps me or the team work better, it’s already a fantastic deal. I’m pretty sure the ROI on this resource will easily be 10x.

This could enable me to be more productive overall and save me time. 

Let me know if you’re fine with this.

P.S. alternatively I’ve noticed that the Newsletter’s creator also offers a Group Subscription option at a significant discount.
