It seems that I just can’t catch a break on the getting sick front! Well, I take that back, since I still seem to somehow be Covid free, despite the fact that apparently everyone is gonna get it by the end of March. But yet we soldier on, turning as rusty cogs in need of oil or replacement or whatever the proper metaphor here is for seemingly purposeless wandering in a world on fire.
This time my sickness is likely a sinus infection based on symptoms and the fact that my partner was diagnosed with one a few days prior. All I know is that this week I’ve felt the most sick that I have since before the pandemic, which I guess could also be a positive way to look at it?
At this point I don’t have a ton to go over while resting, despite the number of stories out this week that would be right up my alley. Twitter making a potentially very bad or very forward thinking decision with NFT profiles (I’m leaning toward the former)? TikTok and Instagram both announcing paid subscription support? Something that I think is very worth looking into further.
In my mind they’re basically the same story to an extent, figuring out how monetization is going to work for creators when the bottom drops out on click based advertising. I want to give this more attention when my mind isn’t wandering quite so much. I’d also like to hear from yall what you think about new forms of scarcity and subscription funding online and if you think either are worth it.
For now, I’m going to drink more DayQuil and take a little break from email. Have a good weekend!
If you made it this far, why not share this newsletter with a friend? Or share with me some of the things that you found that you liked this week. Either way, I’m thrilled!
