Why Is There a Silent “C” in Connecticut?
Someone on Twitter asked me that question. I thought it was a trick question and then I looked at the spelling of the state and had a 😳😳😳😳😳 moment.
That’s where I have been this whole week having out with my daughter at her boarding school. She needed some support this week and I got to hang with her and some of her awesome friends.
While I was there I promise I wasn’t an obnoxious crypto bro, I only shared Giddy with like 7 people. I even gave a student 4000 giddy so he could Learn Defi and even have some funds to start an idea we made up together called “Dorm Dash”, which is basically on-demand delivery from the mailroom to the rooms of students.
Also, yes, I shaved my face for the first time in 18 years.
I took a few days off of Linkedin but had a friend keep my multi-year posting streak going. This post today is great if you want to know how Giddy works. Austin does such a good job, which makes sense. He was an early YouTuber and made videos about living on bitcoin before bitcoin was a thing.
The street NFT event was a total hit. We had over 50 projects do what I dubbed “shill fest” which was a 30-second fast pitch on the mic.
Jack Levin, who was #19 at google in 1999 was the reason I threw the event. He wanted to see what we had going in Utah. I think he’s excited after seeing all the buzz.
WeCrashed is required viewing if you don’t have a startup but want to get started and think it will be a rocket ship. I am 3 episodes in and fully hooked.
One day I’m going to try to work on this email for a straight hour and just get it done in one sitting. As of now, I throw it together over the course of a week one paragraph at a time. Only Adderall or a gun to my head can get me to do it all at once. But I really want to do something in my life that takes an hour to complete. So for only pickleball matches, MTB sessions and Netflix can get me to stay focused for an hour.
Shout out to a Convoi Ventures portfolio company Zapmoto. They will make it so you can test drive a car without salespeople. Think “concierge test driving”. It’s gonna be big and you can try it if you are in Utah right now.
This was the 2 biggest tweet of all time. Our boy Elon posted this the same week he bought Twitter.
