Weirdo's Weekly Update — 12 Jun, 2023

What are we working on?

The world is advancing, and so are our work processes. As we move toward the future, we constantly look for better, faster, and more efficient work methods. We are working on integrating AI and Langchain Framework to semi-automate some of our work processes.

We are a small team, and with these tools in place, we aim to speed up our work, concentrate on creative thinking, and move our ideas forward.

As we take these new steps toward the future of work, we also want to educate and inspire you with this digital transformation. We’ll share more on how AI and Langchain Framework can enrich and simplify your work lives and pave the way to simplify daily tasks and add additional workforce to small teams.

Think about the time-consuming processes you currently deal with that could be automated. Let’s talk about how we can automate them!

Travel Update

Our quest for the ideal remote spot has landed us in Thailand - ranked third for remote work locations. We can’t agree with the result of more. Thailand is a true blend of affordability, digital-ready amenities, safety, and vacation vibes. Believe us; we spend there a proper chunk of the last 12 months. 😉 The US and Spain were the two other locations in the top 3.

In personal news, I am recovering from a week-long illness, and Maja is back from her brief visit to Porto, Portugal. We're thrilled to be reunited and have managed to borrow a car for our stay in Europe - a blessing for navigating the beautiful rural areas that are not easily reachable with public transport. Since we don't have a permanent home, we thought a car would help to move around while charging our digital nomad batteries around Europe. And no worries, we will be happy to share our upcoming car adventures. 🚗

Here is our first destination - short visit in the Austrian mountains.

Productivity Tips and Tricks

We started this newsletter with automation, so let’s finish with it as well.

One of the reasons why we praise automation is also to increase productivity. Automating your processes eliminates repetitive and time-consuming tasks, allowing you as an individual or business to focus on more value-added activities.By automating processes through technology and software, tasks can be completed faster, with fewer errors, and without constant manual intervention. This increases efficiency and frees up time and resources, enabling businesses to allocate efforts toward higher-level decision-making, innovation, and growth.
