The Rabbit Hole #027

The one that was a day late

Thanks for the emails and concerns about why there was no Rabbit Hole yesterday (Sunday 6/6/21). Your boy was in Vegas for a few days for some R & R.

This takes some time to put together each week and it’s just me writing it. Back to regularly scheduled programming.

The TL;DR

LaMelo Ball joins the BAYC, the creator economy is booming, and a dumb app is topping the app store charts.

Good thing we have Texas and Florida.

If you don’t follow Francis Suarez (mayor of Miami), follow him to see what a city official is supposed to do to attract businesses.

Until next week,
