"Owners don't always approve of Elon Musk, but they still love the cars he makes. I'm Jeff Calvin of fortune magazine with the fortune business update, must seems to enrage large numbers of people every week with tweets about politics, Ukraine, employee relations and much else. But a new report says Tesla ranks number one among all carmakers for overall brand loyalty. So says the S&P Global mobility research business, which doles out the awards based on its analysis of 12 million new vehicle registrations. It deems customers loyal when they acquire another new vehicle of the same model maker manufacturer. But Tesla is slipping at least a little in attracting first time EV buyers. Historically, more than 70% of U.S. consumers acquiring their first electric car bought a Tesla, now that shares declining and it will likely continue to do so as more carmakers introduce their own EVs.

American manufacturers are finding less to like in China and much more to like in Mexico. I'm Jeff Calvin of fortune magazine with the fortune business update. China has long been the factory of the world, but it's no longer as reliable after its zero COVID policy disrupted operations at thousands of factories, including those making Tesla and Apple products among many others. U.S. companies are moving operations to countries that are closer, and perhaps friendlier. The trend isn't new, but it's accelerating dramatically, and Mexico looks to be a big beneficiary, besides being next to the U.S., labor is much less expensive, and its trade agreement with the United States is the most up to date. Plans by the U.S. and Mexican governments are set to modernize ports, telecommunications, and infrastructure, including roads, railways, and airports in 2023, the U.S. and Mexican governments will present more joint agreements to encourage more companies to move their businesses from Asia to Mexico.

This is a Bloomberg money minute, zoom exploded during the pandemic with so many people stuck at home that kind of growth has slowed and now the company is trying to boost its bottom line through business customers, zoom said those customer numbers grew by 14% last quarter, but it also posted its slowest quarterly revenue growth to date. The shares look set for losses at the opening bell. Elon Musk has cut more Twitter workers from the sales side of the business further trimming the ranks that had already been decimated by cuts and resignations. A source tells Bloomberg that an internal counter of employees currently reads at 2750, but some resignations and cuts may still be in the process of being counted.

How times have changed most workers who quit their jobs or having a hard time finding a new one. I'm Jeff colvin of fortune magazine with the fortune business update. It's a strange time for job seekers, the number of open positions is still much larger than the number of unemployed people looking for work, yet now with the economy having slowed way down most of the unemployed are saying they wish they'd started their job searches sooner. So says a recent Harris poll. Most job seekers say their search has dragged on for over 6 months, and many say they've applied for more than 50 jobs. It's especially frustrating for those who quit their old jobs without having a new one, part of the so called great resignation. Now it's more like the great remorse about half of today's job seekers say that, as it stands, they take any job offer that comes along. I'm Jeff Colton.

You never know what's going to happen from one day to the next. I've been in the space for a few years. It feels like a few lifetimes. But these past few weeks have been especially crazy, our poor guest hasn't slept in a week, we're seeing this incredible domino effect right now of a few businesses going down, taking the industry for a ride along with them. And so we're going to get into all of that today with our guest, Jeff John Roberts, crypto editor at fortune magazine, Jeff. Thanks so much for joining in the crypto cafe. Randy, thanks so much for having me. First of all, because this is kind of an audio metaverse cafe, set the scene, where are you? What is your life like right now? What do you drinking? I'm drinking coffee, of course. I'm looking pretty disheveled and unshaven because you have coverage crypto for a decade and I've seen things, but nothing like this past ten days. Yeah, usually I'm drinking coffee. I feel like today I'm drinking like the salt water of my own tears. I don't know. It got dark this week. Give us give us the lay of the land. I mean, I feel like everyone has heard about what's happened with FTX and now there's a bunch of new companies that have been filing for bankruptcy since then, but give us the kind of the quick lay of the land. Yeah, I mean, in crypto parlance, everyone got wrecked. Well, not everyone, but I mean, this is FTX was the star they are the one who, until a week ago, we're going to make crypto mainstream. Help pass legislation and build the domestic crypto industry in the U.S.. And that ain't happening because it all blew up. And of course, the dominoes are in terms of their balance sheet with fiction. So people are out a lot of money. And yeah, I think BlockFi went down. Looks like genesis is paused withdrawals, which is a very bad sign. And this is going to continue for a while. And I mean, FTX, like you said, they were going to go mainstream. They were going to sponsor a stadium in Miami. They invested in everyone. I mean, what happens with all of that now just poof? Poof yet good description. It's kind of sad in some regards too because of course the FTX is CEO Sammy when freed was in this effective altruism, this kind of goofy philosophy of giving money away. So there's all these entities out there media ones and charities that were supposed to get all these grants and that base their plans around this. Now all their money's gone. Sequoia Capital's money's gone. It's hard to shed tears for Sequoia. Capital. But it's just, yeah, it's a lot of people are being badly hurt by this. A lot of poof.

"Fortune magazine with the fortune business update. There are far fewer accountants today than there were just before the pandemic, but the number of companies trying to hire accountants just keeps rising. The mismatch arises from a couple of factors, accountants are being asked to do more than ever, regulators are on their way to requiring that companies report their environmental and societal performance, as well as their financial results, and in many companies accountants are supposed to keep tallies on those measures. Advancing technology is revolutionizing the way accounting gets done and employers need experts to guide them through the changes. At the same time, students aren't stampeding into the profession, the materials hard, and becoming a certified professional accountant requires an additional year of school after a bachelor's degree. High demand, low supply, run the numbers on that job and it looks pretty good.

Inflation seems to be making holiday shoppers feel a little less generous this year. Lisa Chan reports on how this will impact retailers. A recent survey shows that some Americans don't expect to buy any gifts this year because of high prices. Higher prices at the pump, the grocery store, housing costs, all things that affect all of us every day. But you know, I think, you know, you have to remember too, that's affecting retailers, shipping costs, for example, packaging those kinds of things. So that's affecting them as well.

How do you sell beer in a Mideast country where it's strictly regulated? Budweiser has a plan for the World Cup. I'm Jeff colman of fortune magazine with the fortune business update. The World Cup starts on November 20th in the country of Qatar and Budweiser is the World Cup's official beer. The company expects more beer will be consumed during the tournament than would typically happen during an entire year in the country, making it happen won't be easy. All beer must be shipped in by ocean freight, then held in refrigerated warehouse space to protect from the country's ultra hot weather. Beer can be purchased at many restaurants linked to high end hotels and in certain areas of the stadium, but not in the stands. It can not be advertised anywhere except where it sold.

It comes from the French word core remaining hard. It's because we love our country because we love our community because we love our fellow citizens because we love the men and women who we serve with, that we are willing to act with courage.

Fortune: A New COVID Wave; America Just Doesn’t Seem to Care
"Just read an article in fortune magazine that very interesting take. There's a big new COVID wave they're warning us. COVID COVID COVID is coming back. Coming back fall winter, here's the headline. A new COVID wave is probably coming and America just doesn't seem to care. I mean, fortune magazine is writing that people just don't aren't really panicking about another wave. Perhaps because we know there's going to be wave after wave after wave, and if you get it, you get it. That's the mindset. And I believe that there's more and more people coming to that conclusion. Anyway, a lot to cover, but my first question for you on this Monday. Let's start with Pocahontas ranting and raving. Definitely on the warpath, shrill, screeching, screaming, is that real? Is she acting? Is she just performing? Mike and Houston just sent me a text message. And the Academy Award goes to dot, dot, dot. But what about what do you think?

That's republicans democrats and independence. Who now do not believe that biden is providing the right information and you scratch your head a little. Dr paul wonder why well here's a couple of clips that might kind of make you wonder what the administration saying reality might be at odds with each other. Look this next and this is from fortune magazine this morning. Harvard business school top business school in the country. They've decided to move their schooling and move their lessons back online after a surge in breakthrough cova nineteen cases. Last thing. dr. Paul is the paragraph explaining it if we can put that next one on and this is maybe why people are kind of stopping and not trusting as much and we talked about it. Yesterday they have a problem. It's been very difficult for the administration to explain this to people. But here's harvard. As an example ninety six percent of their employees and ninety five percent of the students were vaccinated. that's a much higher rate than the us adult population. Which is currently just that sixty four percent but they said. Here's the spokesperson for the harvard. Business school quote in recent days. We've seen a steady rise in breakthrough infections among our student population despite high vaccination rates and frequent testing. So they are all back online. That might be why americans are saying something. That's not making sense here. Well i think the opposition to a more sensible approach voluntary approach. Who would be the number of people who are catching on in regular meetings. They don't have to read internet's a remote and people who are in the conspiracies. All it they say well if They everybody has to be vaccinated. And you just made some point. They're not doing much better but but the whole thing is if if they worked at all why is it that the enemy is the unvaccinated and they don't want him to get near to stay away from a dangerous so it it doesn't work but they they have to have somebody to blame. It can't blame themselves in. They're not giving up on the Vaccinations and i think you made the point yesterday. You put a few dollars signs out there that people make money on this thing so they're not gonna walk away soon but It does seem strange that you see this evidence doing one thing then all of a sudden you know that they do the opposite thing so But on the long run. I'm still remaining optimistic. That more and more people are going to wake up. And and i think more and more people now say why. Why do i have to get vaccinated. You're vaccinated. you should be protected but it seems like the evidence but but you know even citing this evidence. Sometimes it's risky to. Because they might. They might claim that we Cow through some some type of a cult. of course. i think we talked about a call yesterday. That was all about well. I think the real issue is messaging. That's that we're both scratching our head because you know that poll second question is that you know having a booster just those that scientists are adjusting things to reality and they're coming up with new ways of dealing with some unexpecting. I think most people would accept that because we know the science is not settled in the things do change and i think that would be something that would be more accepted by the american people if the white house said look..

I said i finally had this opportunity. I remember then a fulltime job or not full-time but a paying job on that. And i remember i went to my boss also bear and he goes. What did you learn. What did you learn got to sit next to. This guy told me legendary stories about what did you learn. And i said it's in forbes magazine said something even dopey was something because the biggest thing that i learned from him was. He gave me something that was a cliche. I knew it out as i walked out the door. He stood up before like to end the awkwardness and he said andrew. One of the things i learned from my boss was if you love what you do. You never have to work a day in your life. All right thank you for combined okay. Maybe there's like some deep wisdom in there. Maybe i know it sounds like a cliche but this the thing i got so i'm going to hang onto it and see if i could find interest court for can chew fortune cookie. I shouldn cursor. That's all right. That's all right. We're getting worked up rolling here. I i i love. I mean that's the way i when people interview me in You know that the time. This is the time to share. This is what i'm asking. This is a this is why you're on the show to go deep into these subjects and ticket like these these nuanced interactions. That made this book possible and You brought up a e in the process of of going deep in there it clicked. You started creating creating this podcast. You're interview show before the word content was even a thing you like. Why did you even want to go that direction. And then how cool is it. When did you have that sense in your mind like oh there could be a business around this or was it like oh. This is natural progression of me falling my passion and content. We can we contents attention attention cells. Let's go even have that. What i had was. When i graduated from school i wanted to create an on i wanted to create a magazine and sell subscriptions of it. I said i know people still pay first. Subscriptions for paper. I can make hold calls. I want to create a magazine with Biographies if people. I admire because there was a period there when forbes magazine created something called audacity magazine and i loved it so much. I hunted down mint copies of the magazine. I wish i hadn't thrown it out and maybe ask her. You don't wanna hold onto stuff in life. i don't anyway. I want to pack light but it was so beautifully written these stories that that had a clear message of people. You didn't know that you learn from more than you would in school. And i wanted to create something like that and i said i could sell it and if i get a subscription that i can keep rolling it over and then i ended up with a real big business here. Meanwhile my brother created online dating site. And i said oh maybe i should go to online. There's more money in that. But i still love the idea of storytelling and learning from entrepreneurs who who built the boo built the world for us. And so anyway. That's the background. Then i started hosting these events and microsoft sponsored them and lynn langat who worked for microsoft at the time said to me andrew. We're happy to sponsor but you need to better job of telling people about the events. Said i'm sending out invitations. All the time said no invitations. That's great. I see you're packing these places up. What you need to do is show people who didn't come. What was going on here and brought in your reach. Which i then understood later on also helped her with her reach and wasn't just that she was getting more eyeballs. She wanted to be able to go back to the people. Microsoft was were funding. Her to me and say we back this thing. Now if it's this thing that's ephemeral happens in in In someone's office is like this big party. That i threw it. It's not a thing you can show anyone. But if i could do something it would be. It would be an event. It would be content that she could then take to her bosses and so she pushed me. She pushed me and finally. I said you know what i'll interview the people who came to the events and i started interviewing them and then i interviewed this woman who over the years. We've done millions of dollars in business with. I've been to her house. She'd been to my. I didn't really have a house at the time but she'd been to my office we'd had dinner for for years as we just kept working together and then i said let me interview you. Let me go outside of my my People who come to my party and interview. And i got to hear her story like i'd never heard anyone else because like i've never heard her story before because when i had dinner with her it would be awkward to spend an hour going deep on how she started her company where she came up with their idea it. It feels too one-sided if i if you just you don't have places in life for you could press but here. I had an hour to ask to see who this guy was what you did there. What she why. She ended up with this company. What happened when she took the company public and so on and so is her name was rosalind resnick a published interview. I remember them looking over. My wife said. I found the thing i want to do for the rest of my life because now i get to. I get cds exciting stories. I used to love reading. In real life customized to my needs and have conversations with people that i thought i knew in a whole new way. Nobody'd ever done that before. Yeah and early on. Did you sense you had a strength a knack for having these conversations or e and what has changed Let's say from not not what has changed because probably a lot has changed. But what are they key things that made you get from like that first interview to your two hundred interview like what are key things that like made your inner interviewing process that much better for your guests kind of asked him what i had in. The beginning was imitation. I really like this american life and how thoughtful they were and so it was what you're about to hear in. This interview is a conversation about something. I've really been wondering about. I had his style copied almost exactly. But i did also have sincerity. I knew that i was on some online webinar where someone interviewed Wasn't an interview. She was kind of introducing a presentation. By seth godin and then these two other authors and i thought it was a great idea right. Seth gets to bring his audience in and then he gets these two other famous authors in. So now i get to hear set and i get to hear his two other famous author people and it was great and then they all get to like expand their audiences in this whole thing but when she introduced him she she said something that just rubbed me the wrong way she said. And now we're going to hear from seth godin. We're going to hear. His secrets is marketing secrets. They're not as marketing secrets. The guy franken wrote a book. He's trying to publish besides it. You can't when you're publicizing a book. You can't call them marketing secrets and i and obviously that's a little thing on being pedantic there but the thing that bothered me was i could see. She wasn't being sincere. She was being a performer doing things. She thought she needed to do which is introduce him and give the thing that he was doing some specialness and what i wanted her to do was just be open and say i've followed this guy for years. I can't believe i'm allowed to be here. The thing that i liked about him was he said purple cow. And then i decided to create this little thing. And that's what happened to me. And because of that. I got to grow my business bit and i want to hear a little bit more and frankly a little more connected to set. Just do the thing that opened. And i said since i hate the way she's doing i have to then do it the way that i want and not hate myself and so i would be open and i would say things like i'm not comfortable in this interview. I feel like i screwed this up. I feel like. I'm going to two week here and that helped. That helped a lot to be that sincere yup yup and then and then man. There's there's been a couple tangents. I wanna i wanna pull from that idea from this idea. we we touched upon The things that you As far as when you're putting the content of the book and you're trying to put all of your ideas into two hundred pages around two hundred. How many pages are we talking here. I don't know we don't.

Let's say really largely on the cover. And the so you know for example. Say lorsch and vice the bed that it would just be laura's face like plastered all over the counter something and is this meant to be a fun like interactive experiment. You know especially just trying to do something a little bit new with Nafta's and even now. It's like i think the the api's along platforms are still a little bit limiting like for example open sea was lower slough to update their data. So you know in an ideal world when somebody plays a bad it went immediately update but in this case just because that was just not ready on and so it was taking a few minutes to update so you know a really intense auction. Actually that wouldn't have really flown by well. Because then you like laura plays an auction. I'll place one right after. It doesn't even have time to update the laura version you know. So that's how we know our start early. I think just because many of these things are so lacking when we have here ideas and can taste the possibility of it happening a lot of the platforms and everything. Just slow to catch up. I mean on open sea actually couldn't ended up having one of issues on there and even just supporting the auction at solve because there was too much traffic got dawson hacked and so two of the pieces closed prematurely. There were all these issues with the auction itself. Which is unfortunate like. I said it's just an indicator of how early we earn in so oakland the future one kind of black but these are things that affect financially right because of these two auctions on being closed prematurely due to the platform they sold for one of them sold for less than half of the value that it was supposed to software does a real financial impact. And so you know just talking about like finance tea's like obviously it's great that there's this new wave for us montage their work but there is a lot of other dependencies that factor into like the finance of things. Were nafta's for sure. So hopefully you know working towards a future where Along these things along worse one quick question before we move on. I really wanna discuss dow's soon. However during the week this episode was recorded we saw two institutions by an tease these about crypto punk and budweiser bud beard dot e which is a domain name and f. t. obviously you have now worked institution fortune magazine and i was curious to know where you thought this institutional interest in of would go. I feel like there's almost like two tracks of this interest in. Nfc's kind of the discord chat rooms where people are waiting for the tea drops. But then you've got this other end. So i was curious to hear how you're perceiving these two constituencies that are interested in nf nfc's well. I think purely you know a lot of. I'm sure without a doubt. A lot of is financially motivated. Let's be really you know. I mean us. Being in crypto we find technology really cool and everything in it for the attack a generates headlines is at the end of the day all the headlines i ever see are just done not sold for this much money or this company makes this much money selling and after the number and so i feel like that's initially attracts. You know a lot of these major corporations to dapple. But i do think that you know there is a difference between the ones that actually are open minded and willing to learn about the space bow and honestly i really felt out a fortune just after this whole experience they were like we're gonna open like a fortune vaults and start dislike holding tease now also. I think i've got really cool right. Know we help them set up their first thing. I'm changed any they bought or Media or east. They have a harbor wallet now and then. I didn't even think they would want to start collecting teeth. But they do you know it wasn't just a and they're holding their reptile so this is just an example right. I'm i'm just using this directly or sewing. I can actually say does or at least i know my information is accurate and i'm sure there's other corporations who obviously after having these experiences also certainly opened up their eyes to what is possible within the space and it's not just come into your nfc's cash out and you don't go back to the old copper lines kind of situation. Which i hope happens more and more. Because it's i think you know there's so much at at this point i feel like it's almost hopefully like undeniable that this is just a technology that will be so existing in our lives constantly in the near future and sell the earlier accompanied him. The on warranted probably better for the new trend. In crypto is this trend of dow's and he's specifically curation dow's though i don't know all the different terminology for these different types of dow's how dow's changing and of teas are curation collecting etc. I guess the sort of elephant in the room they should bring up at this point episodes one. I sold my in south of tea. In march.

You thought you were going to be working at apple and and said that you know you're kind of your own brand and you're connecting directly to your fans So i think it is a really good example of how. Nfc's changing things for creators before we get into a broader t. Discussion would you like to tell us about one specific project that you're especially proud of you have to choose from either. Your old defy videos or your fortune cover. You can pick whatever you like. I can probably talk about the fortune one because it's just like more recent and fresh in people's minds. Basically i think monster alex i'm gonna turn his last name lodge. He's like the founder of showtime at. But that's what it looks like. Sorry yeah yeah so. He originally made that connection basically at diet somebody from fortune. Want to talk to me on five interested. And i said yeah sure those subtle finger originally thousand few months ago i i just thought that maybe they were trying to do another of ta collaboration or something. But then i know nothing. Nothing happened until like a few months. Later when their creative director evert just called me and said hey. Do you want to do the cover for fortune magazine. The next issue that we have coming as a special one. That's covering difference in defy gal like they were just like we watched your unit saw like behind the scenes video. Thought that you would be really perfect for us. And then you know for me. I think right now. Hopefully trying to make all my in collaborations or an empty projects. Something meaningful worse elevates the community and so this seemed like of her platform for it. I was obviously down. But you know it wasn't blank slate. In the beginning i didn't have actually and diaz or what i would actually do for the cover and it's one of those things kind of similar to the utah using just like i think this is going to have a lot of is on it so i'm better take seriously our i need to really make the most of it and then i was chatting with leighton cusak founder full together later and i was just serve lamenting my woes about. Oh i don't have any ideas for cover and a lot of pressure to and then he being a genius obviously went home that night and the text the next day he goes. I was thinking about your fortune power and i. It'd be kind of cool if he did something like a portal or something that represents like going on around the whole of kirk though and then you know inside. There's all these flank of down on his twitter avatars or some we had previously flooded around. You know some ideas because around the time there were some nafta projects that were either including famous. Vc's or famous influencers crypto pants or something to serve gouge engagement and then so but then fortune Yuan on one of our previous like covers I think there were some legal issues with including like actually famous real people or something and so laden was like look if you did it with anonymous twitter people wouldn't have that and that was like this genius and so credit to him for the idea but you know i i still had to obviously like think about how i was actually going to visually present this and put together and so. That's pretty much all my time. Doing you know. And i made a tweet. Those sort of. I guess you could say crowd source where i was just like any contacts to are the most famous anonymous profiles. And then you off you save a lot of you've had attributed so in the future if people want to know like you know about things like they should look out in my tweets sometimes and then so yeah i kind of source that together put it together and obviously we've spent the rest of the time making sure that the artwork looks polished and professional and presented in visually pleasing way my job after all and then they worship really going through collaborative partner on it. They were so willing and open minded to learn anything. More about current on defy your leg. I was saying oh probably name these pieces like they like to do as a chad. What does chad. it's like. And they started. They started using the term now themselves like it's great and so yeah when i posted on twitter initially the first time i think in shock on a lot of people thought it was a joke at first there is no way this real i mean. I also feel like almost can't believe they let me do this. He got away with murder or something you now a lot allowed like. It was a pretty provocative title. Hang line that they. How howard crypto verses wall street seven being origen the fortune five hundred companies mostly. Are you know sort of not that. And so the whole issue. I think you know meant a lot to me myself. You know because obviously crypto awareness. Something that i care about on. I think the community while and so that's kind of why does cover is currently still like sold at only stands because everybody just felt very league rivers ended by this issue and even just the articles inside over sir. Educating defy the cover art is nearly just an initial traction by the whole issue itself as one so. I'm just glad it turned out but coal based on your experience how would you say the way artists make creators make or can make money with. Nfc's differs from how they made money previously.

How us let's start with you telling us what it is that you used to do before crypto how you got into crypto and what it is you do now high so i basically i meant to artists specialized in sort of like three d. animation. I've been doing it for the past. Six years plus Sales working in film and television and commercials also was on the team at blizzard. And then on starting last summer i got into working with collaborating with defined protocols and just working crypto and also hannah teas and so. That's what i'm doing full time today. Yeah and one thing. I love about your story. Is that kind of what. I don't know if it was the precipitating event but you had accepted a job at apple and then that got rescinded because of the pandemic and basically after that you stumbled into crypto and so your life i think would be quite different if you up with that job at apple i we would not be having this conversation right now and i would probably just fee rendering iphones somewhere and and you would definitely not be allowed to talk about your work. I'm pretty sure probably we can. Maybe talk about your unicef v. Three video i. I mean i know you had done defy videos before then anything. That was the one movie that was kind of the the first big one that you did. So why does she tell us that story about how that came about. And then what happened with it totally so basically what happened was yelich starting from last summer house was cooperating. When goals on think they would just be animated short form videos or hype videos that just you know sort of as my visual representations by defined protocol represents and everything in january had reached out to me asking on actually reshot Who asked if he knew me and like fight He could put them in contact me because they wanted to talk about something. The someone they did they ask environment the interested in making and then reached for them for the three launch. Which obviously anybody who was in defy at the time what if and like those of biggest announcement of the year basically so i was like oh course i can't believe you guys but let's trust in me to you. Know basically help set off such a big announcement and so on conversation started kicking off like earned january I really started production on it. Probably sometime in february and You know my hospice usually west essentially with bigger projects like this because there they did give me more time. I wanted to be able to wear vicious with that. You know. I make a story board and we go over the idea. Sketch out You can see this in my sort of behind the scenes video on that you find on twitter and then you move on from the story of war to like making what we call an antibiotic or just just a very very rough on animated representation of what the ammunition might look like and that was also when we kicked off a scoring the the video as well so i originally put in a piece of music from this underground musician that i really like as sort of like a reference and we found an actual Composer has named as isaac. Isaac cores on instagram. Like he's so. Isaac leader is a correspondence. Gram he's so talented anyway. And so he basically like drew my the one that i put in as a reference and It was inspired by that but It was kind of like a. I was doing the animation with the help of tooth friends because it was a lot of work on the four five second along enemy shed that overall basically from start to finish took about at least a month and a half to finish and so yeah i mean the whole process know also obviously directing it like giving notes on everything six of music to just creating the whole vision really and then when it came out and and of march which is one day announced v. Three i mean. I tweeted out the video porn than half million views within twenty four hours. I think everybody on krypton. Twitter had always seen video at that point and really special moment. This is sort of like my magnum opus. I guess and it kind of falling that. Obviously we sold it. Isolated isn't enough tea which charity than that's sort of. What put me on the map for you know when the nfc community but a lot of people think that oh that was like the headline of alcohol. Please raised as much money. Not because of teas were all talk at the time right but to me least the most special part was just when unicef tweeted out the video before it was even an nf tea and just to see everybody sort of react to that and it just that my animation has an impact on people on was so cool and so that was obviously a project that has a very special place in my heart. That nf t. If i recall it raised it went for like three hundred something. If y'all three hundred tiny theory yeah so were you expecting not or was that a surprise definitely a surprise iowa's speaking of a dear friend of time about what i think what the piece of gopher and i sat like a range i said. Okay i think you know maybe low on the low end of expectations. Maybe we'd go for single digit east and then high end of expectations of probably one hundred k. And us dollar which at the time. Because specifically when i sold the piece the dollar value theorem was kinda low. It was like you know. I actually almost didn't drop it. He's losses like the prices are so bad right now. I'm not sure if this a good time in the market dropping an empty. But at the end i was just like you know what i'm just going to go with whatever i originally planned.

They didn't like it. And there may be retribution underway. Aaron pressman writes about tech for the boston globe and had the story and it just went straight to my brain and aaron welcome. It's nice to meet you. How are you doing sir. Good morning mark thank you. This is crazy first of all how. You've been writing about tech for the boston globe. The boston globe.

They sort of started making a tip sheet for people who aren't to sell on ebay and it became this big newsletter. They started making a lotta money from advertising to people who want to sell things on ebay so it was a great little business. They had Ebay over the years you may have noticed has shifted to emphasize more selling like big retailers and increasing the fees on little guys who want to sell things so the newsletter became i think a little more critical overtime and kinda got under the skin of some of the top people and ebay where they were. Who would've who's eyeballs would have seen this in order to think this isn't right. We're going to punish these people. Where's he bay headquarters out in silicon valley like everybody else.

"Sixty five eighths to two hundred and fifty eighth. You're not expected by the way to know what any of those projects are. I think the key thing is the trend line that this handful of specific buying actions reset the price floor for absolutely everything in the space this contributed to an overall record. Week trading volume. Hit one hundred and seventy one million which was up three hundred and thirty eight percent from the same week a month earlier and if team marketplace open see-saw record volume as well and the average price of a crypto punk now stands at sixty six eighth or about one hundred and seventy five thousand dollars. So what's going on. Well certainly a part of it is some mainstream coverage. Fortune magazine did a most influential list for the nf space. And while the list is sort of suspiciously full of accessible types to me they do feature summons as well who feel pretty clearly more at the center of that world the coolest part of the fortune piece might have been the cover which was created by artists people pleaser and featured a boatload of the avatars of a and crypto twitter folks the new yorker also published a piece titled white board ape. Avatars are taking over twitter. Subtitle was nfc. Clubs are all the rage among crypto currency enthusiasts. Are they get rich. Quick scheme or the future of culture so it's entirely possible that institutional capital saw not one but two mainstream pieces and said this is good mimetic fodder to fuel foam. So we're going to get in in other words. You see a couple of mainstream publications about an nfc space that you've kind of been lurking around the sides of and you figure why not happen..

Hbo has entity has heavily influenced. What cable television is and what entertainment delivery services are in general. If it hadn't been hbo our landscape would be dramatically different today. So that's why we're doing it in fact think about it without hbo. You don't have a cable. companies cable. System operators pushing cable copper cable into cities anywhere near as quickly right. You might not have seen it happen or it might have taken a decade longer. Which means you would not even have the infrastructure that the internet relies on today for high speed internet. We'd be using telephone lines still. Yeah you might. Furthermore not have had people adopt as quickly the idea of using satellites to beam information at television information out too many far spread networks. Exactly so like we said landscape very different without. Hbo whether you love it or hate it. It's a large part of why the world is as far as the cable world and entertainment world's why things are the way they are so so A little tiny bit of back story very tiny. Hbo owned by time.

Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex: ‘If you listen to what I actually say, it’s not controversial’
"Meghan Markle is sharing how she deals with her haters and a discussion for Fortune Magazine's most powerful women summit. She says that she has a sense of humor about it and just keeps real. It's about being authentic, and if you look back at anything that I've said. It's really interesting because it often ends up what ends up being inflammatory. It seems is people's interpretation of it, but if you listen to what I actually say. It's not controversial. And actually some of it is is reactive to things that just haven't happened. Okay. So she talks about being authentic guys thing Meghan Markle is authentic that girl in your group who's like I'm real I like to say like it is I'm always real. Things that you say because I truly think that she is very careful with her words because I do some very smart with it. She's very smart. It's the things that she doesn't say. The things that she didn't say about moving her family from one side one side of the world to the Knicks how hard that could be. She's not saying she hates her inlaws everybody as their in laws give us a little. She says what? Sometimes it's hard. We ever is the Queen. I. Don't think you could say that I mean I think she has to show respect to the authority that the clean has and says, she can't be wine. Lovely. As much as anybody else. But every now and then you can admit sometimes crosses the line. Is. Not. Her mother law is not the Queen of England or or the Prince of England like it's totally different think and she's tried to navigate I think I think I will say in their defense I think she realized that she was not going to be able to survive in that reality of being a part of the royal family, the Royal World and the Royal Protocols they have now moved to the United States. They haven't been here that long we've been in a quarantine for the majority of. The time that they've here. So I feel like now she's going to figure out and navigate and see how she's going to navigate through becoming more authentic and approachable. But also you think about it with the royals are the only sort of old old school institution where like not everything is on and not everything is on instagram. They're not putting all of their business out there and so I think she's authentic to the level that she can be authentic actually don't even really do that many interviews so. We just bits and pieces here and there and maybe. Not, working down more she's up breaking her breakfast smoothie in the morning for.
Yahoo's Ugly Death
"The name is synonymous with a time when all of our lives were simpler when facebook was an actual books full of students faces computers made weird sounds when the connected to the Internet and downloading a one minute long video can take all night. Eddie tight yet who was one of the four or five most popular websites in the world with billions of views, every month and evaluation well, over one hundred, billion dollars. But as the two thousands turned into twenty tens, the web changed massively and your who was faced with the difficult task of changing with it. Their web portal service model was going out of fashion. We all moved to g mail and Google Search, McCain the front page of the Internet. Despite the fact that ask Jeeves was obviously way better. Many of Yahoo's services remained relatively popular, but they were no longer trendsetting no longer growing and the company's market capitalization dropped to a fraction of what it once was any remnant of the mindshare or what we might refer to as v Cultural. Capital they once held fell off. So to those of us on the outside yeah, who's fall seemed utterly quiet gradual and most of all inevitable but was it really Forget what you think. You know at least for a moment and consider this from the peak of the DOT COM bubble. Some say the beginning of the end for Yahoo to two thousand, eight, their revenue increased tenfold that success was no fluke either as print publishers struggled with the incoming revolution of online advertising, Yahu was very much on top of it. They were positioned Willie enough that when Microsoft attempted to buy the company for forty, five, billion dollars in. Two Thousand and eight CO founder and CEO Jerry Yang swiftly rejected the offer it was over the following few years that things would start to ten at the company transitioned through five different CEOS in just four years, and in the meantime Google took over the Internet. This would seem like the end of the story except in two thousand and twelve yen made arguably the most significant tire in its history and new CEO who could finally get things going again. Marissa Mayer. was distant for such a role from the beginning. Some college students have hard time in the job market, but after completing her degree at Stanford, Marissa was offered fourteen different jobs including teaching Gig at Carnegie Mellon One of America's leading engineering schools and consulting role at Mackenzie. Arguably, the world's premier consulting for the Young Maria turned down both those offers to become the twentieth employees at a fledgling startup called Google. At Google, she was star in fact, there's hundred percent chance you've run into her work. She oversaw the design of Google's homepage. You know the one you use probably ten times a day she was also one of the three people behind Google Edwards. It's difficult to overstate the importance of Edwards to the Internet as a whole and to the company itself to give you some sense of it. Though, at one point Edwards provided ninety six percent of Google's entire revenue. In fact, you could argue that Edwards and by proxy Melissa Samaya was at least partly responsible for the fall of. yahoos revenue multiplied tenfold between two thousand and two thousand and eight in no small part because of their online advertising. But he declined even faster when Google they're smaller competitor designed a better wage, you connect advertisers with users based on search results. Edwards. So, by the principle that if you can't beat him, you should join him Yahoo in two thousand and twelve hired Marissa Mayer. It was bald and popular choice. The company's stock rose two percent.

Burger Kings Bold Advertising Goes Even Riskier with Moldy Whopper
"You seen the picture yet? The ultra gross. Close up photo of a Burger King Walker sprouting white fur and vivid blue. Green Mold If you haven't seen it yet you probably should. The ad campaign breaks all the rules of advertising the high resolution video and photos so shocking that ad weeks David Greiner wrote quote. There are only two eras in advertising ads. That came out before Burger King's Moldy Walker and adds that came after Burger King's moly robber at the heart of the campaign is a forty five. Second time lapse video that shows a freshwater growing mold over about a month. You know like an old national geographic film of say a butterfly growing in a cocoon. Or maybe the life cycle of a cockroach set to a nineteen fifty-nine recording of Dinah Washington's singing that old classic what a difference a day makes and yes that sparked a chuckle maybe an outright guffaw. The campaign is also sparking a lot of controversy in some circles. It's considered so bold that it's brilliant in others. It's considered a total flop. Nowhere is it. Forgivable in it's endless war with McDonald's Burger King has made a name and won awards as an advertising risk taker but this particular campaign takes the cake. But why why do this to call attention to its plans to roll out a whopper free of artificial preservatives throughout the US. By Year's end the whole point of the ad as evidenced by a Burger King Tweet. The beauty of real food is that it gets ugly given enough time. What Burger King Chief Marketing Officer? Fernando Machado is counting on here. Is that by implication will remember and savor only the good part of that equation. How great fresh food looks and tastes. When it's new you might say. This is a gamble. Burger King says it's already removed all artificial ingredients from walkers in many European countries including France Sweden and Spain according to Market Watch. And it's taken them out of whoppers in four hundred American locations. That's out of about seventy five hundred burger kings in the US going further. The company said all menu items will be free of artificial colors flavors and preservatives at stores in the US and in many European locations. Mcdonald's made a similar announcement three years ago saying it would remove artificial ingredients from seven of its ten burgers market. Watch reported at a wonder what the three are didn't have it removed. Burger King Machado told Fortune magazine that he was inspired by social media photos. People have taken a food so laden with preservatives. They didn't ever look old like six year. Old French fries without a speck of mold or as some have noted it could be an intentional day at the so-called last McDonald's cheeseburger in Iceland which has been on display since two thousand nine when the last McDonald's disappeared from the country. It looks conspicuously unaffected by the ravages of time. According to Ad Week according to the Iceland Review you can watch a livestream although well you know. Nothing happens so far. The Moldy Hopper Campaign has received twenty one million social media impressions that according to Ad Week but sixty percent of those called it disgusting. Still Ad Week writes. That doesn't mean the campaign failed. However since Burger King itself pointed out that fresh food gets ugly. But the nauseated reaction does elevate a criticism that often dogs burger kings out of the box advertising.

Just spaces were delivery drivers lineup to pick up their latest stash of Burgers and onion rings. Some like cloud kitchen owned by Uber's ousted. Ceo Travis Kalanick's go to great lengths to hide their kitchens. Locations calendar clearly takes the ghost named seriously. Here's what else they have in common. They are suddenly everywhere.

India and China according to Fortune magazine funding growth with four hundred million dollars of cash from the Saudi government. Last week ghost kitchen company TOPI which already has thirty locations announced it had secured another sixty million dollars in funding to build out fifty more kitchens in the US Saudi Arabia Dubai Kuwait and the UK.

The Wall Street Journal reports restaurant business questions whether it's a setup for a bubble especially should a recession set in. Here's the logic when employment looked shakier. We lose a job. We start cooking again. Takeout sales Wayne and ghost. Kitchens can't fill their spaces. Ghost kitchens become ghost towns.

Texas roadhouse are shunning third party delivery reports industry publication FSR restaurant executives at these restaurants. Say Third Party. Delivery hurts business. Diverting potential customers who would otherwise dine in order drinks at the bar and develop bonds the bartender in waitstaff. Some say their food doesn't travel well. And if it arrives at a customer's home or office cold well. The restaurant gets blamed. Not Grub Hubbard posts. Mates FSR says these restaurant leaders also questioned the wisdom of paying high commissions to outside delivery services for an outcome that well while it can raise revenues by twenty or thirty percent can shrink profits nearly as much still plenty of business leaders.
