👋🏼Hello wonderful Whale Mailer.
Happy Thursday. Let’s get to it.
In the recommended readings, we have a stellar mix of essays and threads. Starting off we have a fascinating take on how Twitter maybe the last domino to fall before mainstream adoption of NFTs.
Super fun read.
Next, we have another exploration of Web3. I know, I know; I am just fascinated with it. Nevertheless, it is a unique piece totes worth the read.
Rounding out our reading section is the king of the sh*t post Trung Phan. In his essay, he pontificates on the impetus of why LinkedIn is so “cringe”. Like all his works, expect an intellectual center wrapped in expert level trolling. He is a master of his craft.
Moving on, we have an interesting thread exploring the value curve of investing in creative.
Remember creative might not be your biggest lever…
As always, we close with the Tip, Tool, and Fact of the week!
Thanks for being a Whale Mailer. Means a lot to me. You rock 🙌🏼.
Have a whale of a day.
P.S. Received my swag early this week and everything looks amazeballs. We will start shipping out next week. If you purchased a Pixel in the first pod, be on the look out in a couple weeks.
P.P.S. Don’t worry if you want some TW swag and you didn’t get in on the Pixel Beta. We’ll be launching a merch store very soon!

Sowwy. Nothing super major to report back in this Whale Mail.
Still waiting on the Googs to give us the green light and the Recharge integration is uber close; outside of that we are doing a lot of internal upgrades and tons of hiring.
Speaking of hiring, we’ll be posting a job board soon if you want to get more involved with TW. #LetsGo
Next week will be bonanza of new awesomeness; appreciate your patience ;)
So…I forgot the hard drive at the office again 🤦🏼♂️. Bad news, pod won’t go live until tomorrow. Good news, it’s really really good and Shack crushed it. To make up for my tardy delivery of the pod; here is a sensational Nick Shackelford meme 🤣. #LoveYouNick
P.S. You can watch all our past pods here in the mean time.
