The ChatGPT list of lists: A collection of 3000+ prompts, examples, use-cases, tools, APIs, extensions and more.

10. March, 2023 | Maximilian Vogel

Oh, ChatGPT! Some 5 months on the market and a not so tiny ecosystem has developed all on its own, with lists of prompts, tips, APIs, use cases, extensions, success stories and failures. ChatGPT is the first true foundation model for the mass-market. Some of the posts, blogs, and articles dealing with this new phenomenom, well, really don’t deserve any attention. Like “The 10 Best Side Hustles with ChatGPT that Can Earn You $4,000 a Week.” But some of them are genuinely interesting. I’ll try to give you an overview on the more exciting applications.

The launch of ChatGPT marks the iPhone moment for AI. 1m users in just 5 days. But it did not stop here — it is now one of the fastest growing applications ever, even compared with the most successful apps and platforms ever.

Here is a breakdown of the lists, promps, ressources, articles referenced in this this story:

ChatGPT has devoured the net like a ravenous digital beast. It has packed away so much world knowledge and facts, as if it feared the internet would be switched off tomorrow. But don’t be fooled, the most important thing it learned in the web is how to be a smooth-talker, how to spin messages for maximum marketing success.
