# Emailz

First HAQ.NEWS was just descriptions and links I shared on social media. Then a buddy wanted an rss feed and now folks are requesting emails. Give me your address if you want emails too. Simple single click unsubscribe if it gets annoying.


# F.A.Q

Problem

Many websites are using AI/ML to create clickbait which actually doesn't have any valuable content.

Value

I use AI to de-clickbait the clickbait by allowing AI to read my news for me. Then it creates a meaningful tldr; regarding the articles of interest which helps discern what I should read. It is saving me a ton of time.

Why

FWIW HAQ.NEWS really started out as my personal news feed, enriched by Ai, and converted into something quick and easy to read. But then I started getting requests for features like rss, Gracie got involved, and with the super-power of Ai things have taken on a life of their own.

Sharing

I currently post daily infosec news to x, linkedin, mastodon and rss.

I also post daily infosec podcasts and interviews to apple podcasts and spotify.

Ads

This isn't an Ad.

I want to encourage people and projects that impress me, by posting a banner linking their work, as it's my desire to help others. I do not take or make any money.

Thanks,
