  • New Inc 5000 dropped… basically a holiday.

  • Public APIs is such a gem of a site. I would have just browsed this all week if I didn’t have a newsletter to write.

  • I signed up for the annual Starter Story membership. It’s dope for real, they have a ton of content.

  • Found this awesome tracker to watch the floors on Art Blocks projects. I still don’t have any Art Blocks pieces but I want one.

  • Been checking out some alternative chain NFT marketplaces this week. Solsea launched on Solana (but I wasn’t vibing with anything on it). But I have been digging HEN on the Tezos chain. This site is a good way to browse it.

  • This is some next level spy gear that was on Hacker News.

  • Niche. Accountability is hot right now. Dip.Chat facilitates accountability groups for developers. Commit Action is making accountability coaches available through texting.

  • Fvckrender is a French artist I like.

  • If NFTs weren’t mainstream enough yet, the dude behind Entourage is making a show about Crypto/NFT culture.

  • Newsletter Spy was an awesome product. It just got revamped.
