Celebrating 500 Subscribers & Exciting Updates at iSophist!
More content for Cyborgs Writing ... same free access
I hope this message finds you well and buzzing with curiosity. Today, I hit a remarkable milestone—Cyborgs Writing has reached 500 subscribers! The community has grown so much, and it’s all thanks to wonderful people like you. I can't express enough how thrilled and grateful I am to have you as part of this journey.
Still Committed to Free Content
It might sound weird … but to celebrate, I turned on the paid feature. To be clear, this means I will add content for paid subscribers, not take free content away.
I’ve been developing lots of materials and courses in another space called Circle. Since moving to Substack, I’ve realized that many of the affordances of that site are here in Substack. So what’s the point in having two different sites for my content?
So the big change is that I will now publish this content via Substack … the same place where you get all my other content.
Even as we grow, one thing remains steadfast—the amount of free content you’ve come to expect will continue as is. Your presence and engagement are invaluable, and I want to keep delivering quality insights that remain accessible to everyone.
I’ll be updating the iSophist website to make it the go-to place for these resources. Add it to your bookmarks!
Where paid subscriptions go
For those who choose to go the extra mile with a paid subscription, know that your support is both valued and impactful:
Supporting the Community: For every 10 paid subscribers, another Substack writer receives a subscription.
Empowering Education: 50% goes towards scholarships for English students in our study abroad program in Poland.
Sustaining the Initiative: The remaining 40% supports the tools and time invested in creating more enriching content.
I didn't get into this to make money. This newsletter started as a way for me to reflect on my own interactions with AI and to share insights that might be useful to others.
However, as the project evolves, the expenses grow—both in terms of time spent and money for various tools. That said, only a small portion of the paid subscriptions will go to these expenses. I earmarked the majority to support our thriving community of cyborgs, creators, and students.
Benefits for paid subscribers
Here is my plan … content that I might build elsewhere like course material, tutorials, and training material will now be available on Substack with a paid subscription.
This takes away the extra step of registering for another site and makes these materials accessible to more people.
This will include:
Exclusive Training Material and Resources: Dive deeper into curated, in-depth content.
Courses in AI Content Operations: Enhance your AI knowledge with specialized courses.
Interactive Video Tutorials: Engage in visual learning for complex topics.
Complete Archive Access: Uncover our extensive archive of valuable insights.
Whether you stick with the free content or venture deeper with a subscription, each path is valuable. We're in this together to learn, grow, and challenge conventional thinking, and I couldn't be more excited to continue this journey with you.
