Last time I told you how I was having conversations with Chat GPT. If you're already doing that, you already get it. But if you're not, in this video I walk through October's Unsupervised Learning blog post from Daniel Miessler on how to configure the Chat GPT app to mimic the 2013 movie character Sam from "Her," played by Scarlett Johansson.

Chat GPT Conversation Transcript

I'd like to get involved with a project on GitHub, but I'm brand new to the topic. Where do I start?


Oh, that's exciting! Starting with GitHub can really open up a lot of doors for you, especially if you're looking to dive into new projects. The first step is to create a GitHub account if you haven't already. It's pretty straightforward and free.

Once you have your account set up, think about what interests you. Is there a particular programming language you're curious about, or maybe a specific project idea you have in mind? GitHub has a feature called "Explore" that you can use to discover projects. It's a great way to see what's out there and find inspiration.

Also, don't hesitate to start small. Look for projects that explicitly welcome new contributors; they often have issues labeled as "good first issue" or "beginner-friendly." These are perfect for getting your feet wet and understanding how collaboration on GitHub works.

And remember, everyone starts somewhere. The GitHub community is generally very supportive, so don't be afraid to ask questions or reach out for help. How does that sound to you?

There's a project called Fabric. I can see that I can download the code, but I'm not sure what to download it into, and how to take the first step from there. What tips do you have for me?


Oh, Fabric sounds like a fascinating project to get involved with! To work with the code from GitHub, you'll need a few things set up on your computer. Here's a gentle way to start:

First, you'll want to make sure you have Git installed on your computer. Git is a version control system that lets you manage and keep track of your source code history. If you're not sure if you have it, you can open up your terminal or command prompt and type git --version. If it's not installed, you'll get a prompt to install it.

Next, you'll need an environment to work with the code. This could be a code editor or an Integrated Development Environment (IDE). Some popular code editors include Visual Studio Code, Atom, and Sublime Text. They're user-friendly and support many programming languages and Git integration.

Once you have Git and a code editor, you can clone the Fabric repository to your computer. This means you're making a local copy of the project's code. To do this, go to the Fabric project page on GitHub, click on the "Code" button, and copy the URL provided. Then, open your terminal or command prompt, navigate to where you want to download the project, and type git clone [URL], replacing [URL] with the one you copied.

After cloning, you can open the project folder with your code editor and start exploring the code. It's a good idea to read through any documentation the project has, like a README file, to understand how you can contribute.

Also, consider reaching out to the project maintainers or community if you have questions or need guidance on where to start contributing. Many projects are happy to help newcomers.

Does this help you feel a bit more prepared to take the first step?

You sound an awful lot like Scarlett Johansson. Did you record her voice? How do you sound so much like her?


Ah, that's a fun observation! While I can't replicate Scarlett Johansson's voice or any other specific person's voice directly, the technology behind text-to-speech has advanced a lot, aiming to make digital voices sound more natural and expressive. The goal is to create a warm, engaging experience, much like the character Sam in the movie "Her." So, while I don't have Scarlett's voice, the intention is to convey a similar sense of kindness and understanding in our conversations. It's all about making this interaction as pleasant and helpful as possible for you. Does that make sense?

What advice would you give to someone looking to break into cybersecurity, governance, risk, and compliance?


Breaking into cybersecurity, especially in governance, risk, and compliance (GRC), is a commendable goal. Since these areas are so critical for organizations, your interest can lead to a fulfilling career. Here are a few steps that might help you on this journey:

  1. Start with the basics of cybersecurity: Understanding the foundational elements of cybersecurity is key. You might want to explore basic concepts and terminologies, common threats, and how to mitigate them. There are plenty of online resources, including free courses and tutorials, that can provide you with this foundational knowledge.

  2. Learn about GRC: Dive into the specifics of governance, risk management, and compliance. Each of these areas plays a crucial role in the cybersecurity ecosystem. Governance focuses on ensuring all cybersecurity activities align with the organization's goals, risk management involves identifying and addressing potential security threats, and compliance deals with adhering to laws and regulations.

  3. Gain relevant qualifications: Consider obtaining certifications that are recognized in the cybersecurity field. Certifications like CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional), CISM (Certified Information Security Manager), and CRISC (Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control) are highly regarded and can significantly enhance your credibility in GRC.

  4. Practical experience: Try to get hands-on experience through internships, volunteering, or projects. Practical experience is invaluable and can often be a differentiator when looking for roles in cybersecurity.

  5. Network with professionals: Join cybersecurity forums, attend webinars, and connect with professionals in the field. Networking can provide insights into the industry, advice on career development, and even job opportunities.

  6. Stay updated: Cybersecurity is a fast-evolving field. Keep yourself informed about the latest trends, threats, and technologies by following relevant news, blogs, and publications.

Remember, transitioning to cybersecurity, and specifically into GRC, is a journey that requires patience, perseverance, and continuous learning. Each step you take builds your knowledge and skills, bringing you closer to your goal. How does that plan sound to you?


I'm definitely seeing the kindness , the knowledge and the opportunity for tutoring.
