This Week I Learned (TWIL) Series


In the tech world that often follow now-a-days, many developers have a TIL (Today I Learned) link, such as this one. Inspired by such TIL posts, I thought I should create my own TWIL (This Week I Learned) series.

Please note that this series also includes topics that I learned in previous weeks.

From History of TIL:

The abbreviation TIL can be traced back to Reddit. This was originally created so that Reddit members could learn interesting or little-known facts about a topic. On December 28, 2008, a Reddit user named nix0n created a subreddit called Today I Learned. According to Google Trends, TIL has been used online since at least 2004, and its use steadily increased throughout the 2010s.

Here are the things I learned this week (Sept 1):

Finally, one of the reasons I decided to write this series is that, while listening to an interview with an accomplished author and writer, I learned that writing provides structure to the day-to-day lives of many people who are self-employed, freelancers, or retired seniors. This is also very true for yours truly.

My later life has been filled with daily writing routines, such as daily short blog posts, detailed technical articles. I also have a daily news and ChatGPT/AI headlines scanning habit.
