Honestly, I love the idea of plugins, but the current state of things is a complete shit-show.
They absolutely need to build a marketplace application where each plugin can have it’s own information page.
The idea of using a plugin but having zero idea of the identity of the developer is insane to me.
The fact there is no way (at least none I’m aware of) to access documentation about the individual plugins is insane to me.
The fact they don’t appear to have any quality standards for plugins other than they be functional is insane to me.
I mean just look at the first eight plugins down to me under All.
Why do I need to talk to an AI about planning a trip involving Greek ferries‽ I mean, I guess maybe this would be useful in some context. But, it’s just too fucking narrow.
Now, a plugin that would give ChatGPT access to detailed trip/transportation information for all modes of transportation everywhere… That would be useful.
Or, why would I need to chat with an AI about animal transportation companies? Could someone need that? Sure, probably. But, it’s so fucking narrow! And it’s one company’s data.
Now, if you gave ChatGPT the ability to access information from dozens of sources, e.g. Yelp, BBB, Trustpilot, specialized sites like this, and maybe pull business registration information from government sites, any legal proceedings the company has been involved with, identify the company principals and employees, find any political donations they’ve made, pull in posts and comments from things like Twitter, Reddit, Facebook etc, then had ChatGPT synthesize a comprehensive report on each company tailored specifically to an individual’s hierarchy of concerns? Interesting.
Giving it the ability to aggregate and combine disparate services to provide a cohesive platform agnostic experience? Interesting.
Giving it the ability to essentially run a search on one very narrow website? Hot, boring, garbage.
