Apple vs. The Creator Economy
Apple is beginning to reach Facebook popularity. That's in terms of being disliked (mostly by entrepreneurs). This comes after the soon-to-be changes in email privacy, incredibly low opt-in rates for ad tracking, and now the "unofficial cold war" against creators.
For years companies have fought (aka Epic Games) and complained about Apple's infamous 30% commission on app store purchases. What's now being realized is Apple's app store restrictions and their impact on creators and creator-focused companies. Few people have been able to highlight this like Jasmine Rice of Fan House viral thread.
Bryce Hall vs. Austin McBroom, Aka More Celebrity Boxing Matches
Early this week I highlighted how boxing is the new WWE. Now with the troves of influencers rushing to Miami, it seems to be holding up. Who's boxing now? TikToker Bryce Hall and YouTuber Austin McBroom.
Boxing is going through an "interesting transition", to say the least. A transition fueled by the growth of the creator economy and likely to extend to other industries and professions. In short, an audience is leverage, and with an audience, anything seems to be possible.

Talking Social & Platforms
The Future Of Clubhouse
The buzz around Clubhouse has died down exponentially; however, that doesn't mean the CH is out of the game for good. Especially since they raised $110M since January. With big pockets comes the opportunity to build a stacked team.
New CH hires include Kelly Stoetzel who led speaker curation at TED, Justin Uberti to take over streaming, and a number of Coinbase engineers. Based on CH's version of the avengers, the company isn't going down without a fight as it finds its footing in a post-pandemic world.
