I’m building Eightball.com an “Infinite Oracle” that summons famous people - dead and alive, fictional and real - to answer all life’s questions:
I started this project as a fun and casual way of learning and experimenting with AI as part of the #HustleGPT challenge that I’m sure many of you have heard about. You can find my initial tweet about it here:
I’ve got the main site functionality working, but Shakespeare is the only Oracle that is currently available. I decided it best to start small, keep it simple, and add oracles one-by-one to make it fun and exciting for both me and whoever cares enough to pay attention.
Shakespeare provides a response, and then tries to shill you a product on Amazon in a fun and delightful way. I thought this would be a fun first try at monetization: should I only allow him to recommend books?
My next step is add social sharing so people can create specific URLs for results they enjoy so they can share with friends.
I built 99.9% of this, including the Amazon Affiliate Link Rewriter, just by asking ChatGPT 4 how I can accomplish stuff and taking its advice. Absolutely amazing! (that’s a pat on OpenAI’s back, not my own.)
