Some personality types might just be better, politics and pro-wrestling are more similar than you think, and the first rule of Bite Club is to talk about Bite Club

I signed up for this Under the Radar trend-spotting tool and I love it.
9 CryptoPunks from LarvaLabs sold for $17mm at Christie’s. They have come a long way. The craziest thing for me is how popular NFTs actually are and then how few collectors there actually are on the major projects.
Remember StumbleUpon? Stumbled does the exact same thing.
Live Nation talking about the NFT game. I think they should think bigger. I want an Iron Maiden NFT that only the 1,000 best Maiden fans bid up - it would get you backstage access to any show, autographed guitars, meet the band etc. Seems like table stakes that tickets will be on chain in the future, duh.
This Neurosity product looks wild, I want to try it. Apparently it helps you find flow state.
I recently stumbled upon this fellow Indie Hacker, Nikita Kolmogorov. He builds some really cool stuff - I spent some time looking through his projects this week.
Asia is a good place to look for alt coin trends.
I liked this podcast with Kenny Rose, the CEO of Franshares from my dude Stefan over at AlternativeAssets.club. Right now, they essentially have a mutual fund type vehicle where you invest in the franchises they choose. What was interesting to me would be having a community-based vehicle, where you could invest in a franchise pool in your own city.
Your phone accelerometer knows a lot about you… like seriously, a lot.

Marketers, listen up. People don’t have short attention spans, they have short consideration spans.
Until next week,
