The latest news in tech, marketing, and what was actually interesting in tech and culture curated by @oliviameng from New York

Hello and welcome to this week’s OWI. labor day long weekend is ahead. Bye 🌞 , Hello 🍂 . 
Uber has a new CEO from Expedia @dkhos “I will not bullshit you” & “I am a fighter. I’m all in. I will fight with every bone in my body”
Facebook Watch is officially launched and it’s their first battle against TV programming. 
I used to think LinkedIn is just a recruiting platform. After talking with a product person who works on the video/news feed, I learned that they are dedicating a lot of resources to grow their content. Their business model, the user subscription, corporate business account for recruiting. I think the most attractive one is their valuable and highly reliable profile data, so check out the article about their strategy when pivoting to video.
I am pretty excited about September. Back to school season reminds me the beginning of a new cycle. This is my #8 issue, I can’t wait to hit my #10, #20 and #50 marks. Since I started working on this tiny letter, people often asked me why would I do this, why would I spend time on this? 
I wasn’t really able to answer the why or I still don’t have a concrete answer for it. Even now I still can’t. However, every Thursday night I want to sit here and write this intro to you. So what should I write more or less?
