My chat with ChatGPT

Read my little book, Daring Mighty Things. It's the simplest way to start. See:  https://www.amazon.com/author/johnwren

ChatGPT:  Wikipedia and other online resources often provide a good starting point for research. To find the most current and detailed information about King Soopers or its founder Lloyd King, I would recommend looking at reputable online sources, including the official King Soopers or Kroger websites, or checking the latest entries on Wikipedia or other online encyclopedias. Please remember to evaluate the credibility of your sources and cross-check the information you find.

Wren:  Please give me a list of reliable online sources.


Certainly, here are some generally reliable online sources for various types of information:

  1. Academic Information and Research:
    • Google Scholar (scholar.google.com)
    • JSTOR (www.jstor.org)
    • PubMed (pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov)
    • Directory of Open Access Journals (doaj.org)
  1. News and Current Events:
  1. General Knowledge and Information:
    • Wikipedia (en.wikipedia.org) Note: While Wikipedia is a good starting point, it should not be the sole source due to its editable nature. Always cross-verify information.
    • Britannica (www.britannica.com)
  1. Scientific Information:
  1. Statistical Data:
  1. Business Information:

Please note that while these sources are generally considered reliable, no source is infallible, and it is always good practice to cross-check information across multiple sources when conducting research.

Wren: What are the top news stories in Denver, Colorado USA right now?


I'm sorry for any confusion, but as an AI developed by OpenAI, I don't have real-time access to external databases or the internet, and therefore, I can't provide or generate up-to-date, specific news for Denver, Colorado, USA.

As of my knowledge cutoff in September 2021, I don't have the capability to access real-time information or updates. I recommend checking the latest news on trusted news websites, local news outlets in Denver like The Denver Post, or using a news aggregation service to get the most current information.

Wren: Who were the 100 most important people in Denver Colorado USA since 1859?


Compiling a list of the 100 most important people in Denver, Colorado, USA since 1859 would be a substantial task, and it would also be quite subjective. The definition of "important" can vary greatly depending on the criteria used. However, I can certainly provide a short list of some notable figures from Denver's history and recent past, up until my knowledge cutoff in 2021:

  1. William N. Byers: Founder of the Rocky Mountain News in 1859, Denver's first newspaper.
  2. John Evans: Second territorial governor of Colorado, founder of the University of Denver.
  3. Horace Tabor: A prospector turned businessman and politician who became one of the wealthiest men in Colorado during the late 19th century.

  12. John Hickenlooper: Former mayor of Denver and governor of Colorado, later a U.S. Senator.
  13. Michael Hancock: Mayor of Denver as of my last update in 2021.

This is not an exhaustive list and omits many people who have made significant contributions to Denver and the state of Colorado in various fields such as business, education, art, and more. For a more comprehensive list or information on this topic, I recommend consulting local historical societies, libraries, or educational institutions.

Wren: Who were the 100 most important people in the world since recorded history began?


Compiling a list of the 100 most important people in the world since the beginning of recorded history would be an extremely large and subjective task. The concept of "importance" can vary significantly depending on the criteria used, such as influence on global events, contributions to human knowledge, achievements in their respective fields, and so on.

Nonetheless, here's a small selection of significant figures from various fields and eras, listed in no particular order. Please note that this list is far from exhaustive and is limited by the broad scope of your question:

  1. Confucius: Chinese philosopher whose teachings have influenced East Asian life and thought for centuries.
  2. Socrates: Greek philosopher who is considered the father of Western philosophy.
  3. Plato: Student of Socrates and teacher of Aristotle, his writings form the foundation of much of Western philosophy.

  5. Julius Caesar: Roman general and statesman who played a critical role in the events that led to the demise of the Roman Republic and the rise of the Roman Empire.
  6. Jesus Christ: Central figure of Christianity, whose life and teachings have had a profound influence on history and culture.

 Wren: Please use Google nGram Viewer to identify the 100 most mentioned in print people were each decade since recorded history began


I'm sorry for any misunderstanding, but as an AI developed by OpenAI, I don't have real-time access to external databases, the internet, or tools such as the Google Ngram Viewer, and therefore, I can't provide or generate up-to-date, specific data or analyses using these resources.

The Google Ngram Viewer is a tool that shows how phrases have occurred in a corpus of books over the selected years. It's a useful tool for seeing trends in language usage over time but isn't designed to rank individuals by the frequency of their mentions.

Moreover, even if I could access the Ngram Viewer in real time, it wouldn't necessarily provide a reliable list of the most "important" people by decade. The frequency of a person's mention in books can be influenced by many factors and doesn't directly equate to their significance or impact.

For a list of influential people by decade, I would recommend consulting various historical, biographical, and scholarly sources. Please remember that "importance" is subjective and can vary based on the criteria used.

Wren: Use Google Trends to identify the 100 most searched for people each decade


I'm sorry for any misunderstanding, but as an AI developed by OpenAI, I don't have real-time access to external databases, the internet, or tools such as Google Trends, and therefore, I can't provide or generate up-to-date, specific data or analyses using these resources.

Google Trends is a website by Google that analyzes the popularity of top search queries in Google Search across various regions and languages. It shows how often a particular search term is entered relative to the total search volume across various regions of the world, and in various languages.

As of my knowledge cutoff in September 2021, I can't provide real-time data or usage of Google Trends. I would recommend accessing Google Trends directly or consulting various reputable sources for up-to-date information about trending searches or popular individuals. Please remember that search popularity can be influenced by many factors and doesn't directly equate to a person's significance or impact.

Wren: What new business startups in the last 10 or 20 years have been most successful in terms of the financial return to the founders? In terms of the benefit to humans?


Determining the most successful startups in terms of financial return to founders and benefit to humans over the past 10 or 20 years requires both objective data and subjective judgments.

From a financial perspective, several tech companies that were startups in the early 2000s and 2010s have become incredibly successful. Here are a few examples:

  1. Facebook (Founded in 2004): Started by Mark Zuckerberg and his college roommates, Facebook is now one of the largest and most influential tech companies in the world.
  2. Google (Founded in 1998): While slightly older than 20 years, Google's growth in the early 2000s has been phenomenal. Founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin have become two of the wealthiest individuals in the world.
  3. Amazon (Founded in 1994): Again, a bit older than 20 years, but the financial return to founder Jeff Bezos in the past two decades has been staggering.
  4. Tesla (Founded in 2003): Under the leadership of CEO Elon Musk, Tesla has revolutionized the automotive industry and has seen immense financial success.
  5. Uber (Founded in 2009): The ride-hailing app has become a global service, creating a new market and significantly rewarding its founders.
  6. Airbnb (Founded in 2008): Despite regulatory hurdles in many cities, Airbnb has become a giant in the hospitality industry.
  7. ByteDance (Founded in 2012): The Chinese company is behind the enormously popular social media app TikTok.
  8. SpaceX (Founded in 2002): Founded by Elon Musk, it's a private company that has made significant advancements in space technology.

Determining which companies have provided the most benefit to humans is more subjective and can depend on various factors like technological contributions, societal impact, environmental considerations, etc. Some may argue that companies like Tesla and SpaceX have brought substantial benefits through advancements in electric vehicle technology and space exploration, respectively. Companies like Google and Facebook have dramatically changed the way we access information and connect with others, but they've also faced criticism for issues related to privacy, misinformation, and other societal impacts.

In the healthcare sector, many biotech startups have made significant contributions to medical science and patient care, such as Moderna and BioNTech, which developed mRNA-based vaccines for COVID-19 in record time.

This list is not exhaustive, and the success of a startup can be measured in many ways beyond financial return and broad societal impact.

Wren: What public companies that have issued common stock for at least 3 years seem to be the best investment risks today for investors planning on holding the stock for 10+ years?


As an AI developed by OpenAI, I don't have real-time access to current market data, specific company information, or the ability to predict future market trends. As of my last training cut-off in September 2021, I can't provide up-to-date investment advice or recommendations. Additionally, investment decisions should always be made based on individual financial circumstances, risk tolerance, and investment goals.

However, I can share some general principles that many financial advisors and investment experts often consider when evaluating long-term investments:

  1. Strong Historical Performance: While past performance is not indicative of future results, companies that have consistently performed well over a long period might be considered less risky.
  2. Stable and Growing Dividends: Companies that consistently pay and grow their dividends can provide a steady income stream and may be a sign of financial health.
  3. Healthy Financials: Companies with strong balance sheets - low debt, strong cash flows, and high-profit margins are generally considered good long-term investments.
  4. Strong Competitive Position: Companies that hold a strong position in their industry, have a unique product or service, or have other competitive advantages can often perform well over the long term.
  5. Capable Management: Companies with experienced and competent management teams can often navigate challenges and capitalize on opportunities more effectively.
  6. Future Growth Prospects: Companies operating in industries expected to grow or in a strong position to capitalize on future trends can be good long-term investments.

As of 2021, many investors were looking at sectors like technology, healthcare, and renewable energy for long-term growth potential. Large, stable companies often referred to as "blue-chip" stocks, like those in the Dow Jones Industrial Average or S&P 500, are also commonly considered for long-term portfolios.

Please consult with a financial advisor or conduct thorough research before making investment decisions. Investing in the stock market involves risk, including the risk of loss.

Wren: Given those 6 criteria what common stock seem to be the best for investors expecting a high rate of return if held for 10+ years?


As an AI model developed by OpenAI, I don't have real-time data or the ability to predict future market trends. Therefore, I cannot provide specific stock recommendations or investment advice. However, I can suggest you to look at companies in growing sectors or industries that meet the criteria mentioned. As of my last training data up to September 2021, some of these sectors include:

  1. Technology: Companies like Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Google's parent company Alphabet, and Facebook have shown strong historical performance and dominate their respective market segments. Their continued innovation and solid financials make them potentially interesting for long-term investors. Emerging areas like cloud computing, artificial intelligence, and cybersecurity also present potential growth opportunities.
  2. Healthcare and Biotechnology: As the global population ages and technology advances, companies in healthcare and biotechnology such as Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, or smaller innovative firms in the biotech space, could offer strong long-term growth potential.
  3. Renewable Energy and Electric Vehicles (EVs): Companies like Tesla and NextEra Energy are at the forefront of the transition to a more sustainable global energy model. The growth potential in these sectors could be significant as the world continues to move away from fossil fuels.
  4. Consumer Discretionary: Companies that have been successful in e-commerce and digital transformation, such as Amazon and Alibaba, could continue to thrive as online shopping and digital services continue to grow.
  5. Financial Technology (FinTech): Companies like Visa, Mastercard, and PayPal have been successful in this space, and there's also potential in younger companies driving innovation in digital payments, lending, insurance, and more.

These are broad categories, and the risk associated with individual companies can vary greatly. Additionally, a "high rate of return" typically comes with higher risk. It's important to diversify investments and align them with individual risk tolerance and financial goals. Always do your own research or consult with a financial advisor before making investment decisions.
