Including new Substack features, Barbie Movie memes and an open letter calling on AI labs to pause development.

April 11, 2023

Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Digital Snapshot, bringing you all the latest digital news, ideas, tips and guidance for the arts, culture, museums and heritage world.

On 12 April (i.e. tomorrow) during our TEA Break event we'll be sharing what we found when we asked people why they follow arts, culture and heritage organisations on social media. It's from 2:15pm-3pm, and the insights should be useful for anyone who needs a bit of real data to back up their strategic hunches about audiences.

  • A load of people wrote an open letter calling on AI labs to pause development of systems more powerful than Chat GPT-4 for six months to allow policymakers time to catch up and develop some governance. Considering how slow governments have been to adapt to and regulate social media, it's not that bad an idea.
