Hey there, savvy builders and AI enthusiasts! I've been burning the midnight oil to roll out some pretty rad updates that you've been asking for. My mission to make AI more accessible and usable isn't taking a break, and today, I have some exciting progress to share.

What's New 🎉
Search Functionality Overhaul
🔍 Creators search is broken - fix it...
You said it, and I listened. Now you can search all creators using a search feature that's faster and more reliable. The old search was showing a limited subset of results and lacked debouncing. Not anymore.
Content is King
📝 Several blog posts
I've been busy writing high-value content for you. Don't miss:
- Custom Funko Pop AI
- Midjourney Alternatives & Kandinsky AI

📅 Monthly build in public update
In case you missed it, the July 2023 Build in Public update is out.
Better Sharing and Navigation
🔗 Pass params for search into URL so you can share results
Found something interesting while searching? The search results URL is now shareable, thanks to a little parameter magic. So you can now just type what you're looking for ("3D or point-cloud shapes or models") and copy the results URL (this link in this case) to share the models you find with your friends or coworkers.
🚀 Added a quicksearch bar in the top nav
Time is money, and I get that. That's why I've added a quicksearch bar in the top navigation. Search made simple!
💡 Add "Describe your project feature" (semantic search)
This one's for the nerds. You can now use semantic search to compare your project description with my entire collection of model metadata. Stay tuned for a full technical write-up.
🎨 Redesign landing page hero
A fresh coat of paint for the landing page. You'll find fresh copy, snazzy icons linking to publications for that social proof, and a "Recently Added Models" section. It's still a work in progress, but feel free to check it out: AIModels.
That's all for this update. I’m stoked about these new features and hope you are too. Feedback is gold, so don't hesitate to reach out.
