👋Hello beautiful Whale Mailer.
Today’s issue is a banger. First, we have our State of the Whale and a new pod with the man, the myth, the legend: Nick Shackelford.
He drops so much heat on the pod. Truly a must listen!
Moving on to the recommended readings, we have an insane essay on how lucrative engineering can be…Roblox is paying over a million dollars for their principal engineers. #ProperCheddar
Next, we have a super fun read on the boom and bust of the 49ers’ famous golden jackets. The story is absolutely bananas.
Speaking of bananas, we included a mind boggling thread on what metadata is being used, mined and how useless most of it is.
Rounding out the recommended readings, we have a sensational thread by Chris Mulkin (one of our favorite Canadians) on some ways you could leverage an NFT loyalty program. Love this out of the box thinking.
Would you all want a Triple Whale NFT Loyalty program 🤔
As always, we have our tip, tool and fact of the week.
Thanks again for being a Whale Mailer. Means a lot.
Have a whale of a day!
