Whatever the state props up rises in price. Whatever technology disrupts falls in price.

Special Economic Zones People follow jobs. No use just sticking folks out in the sticks Why not start with employment? Lower the corporate tax rate in e.g. Adelaide, Newcastle, Geelong Locals will love it, bleeding to hubs slows Why is this a bad idea?

Most consumer companies have seen cost to acquire customers double or triple post iOS changes The most exciting companies spread their products like this, with customer love. To get the love requires category creation and inventing totally new value for customer.
The @eightsleep hype is justified. And all we’ve done so far is set up the mattress. The Pod is next. Have never slept on a finer bed.

Qotd @EricNewcomer: "Over my years as a reporter, I’ve grown less cynical. Sometimes the headline numbers look awful but investors have data that you don’t see. Of course, I’ve also made peace with most startups that seem self-evidently preposterous, turn out to be just that."

NFT projects by volume. Crazy just what amazing businesses these projects are. @axieinfinity, @LarvaLabs (CryptoPunks), and @ArtBlocks_io all grossing *billions*. Which projects will be in the top 10 next year?
