As I said in this week’s Free Edition, thank you to all of you for supporting Synthetic Work in these first 6 months.

I won’t repeat what I said there. I’ll rather say that nothing is more valuable than your feedback. The newsletter morphed quite a bit from the first issue, mainly based on your input.

So, that feedback remains critical to understand how Synthetic Work can deliver more value to you.

If you have a moment, reply to this email and share your thoughts.

I’m especially interested in what would you need to see to make you say “Oh, finally!”

Thank you and onward.
