🆕 Personal Updates
This month I have continued to fall down the Web3 rabbit hole and I’m deep 😅 No doubt I’m in a bit of a vacuum chamber but it seems to be all everyone is talking, writing or reporting about currently and it’s hard not to get sucked in right?
My particular interests currently are NFT’s, Defi and DAO’s which is perhaps a little much to digest at once, however, I’m trying not to get too sucked into the hype as I tend to do with new technology, but instead, treat it with a healthy pinch of scepticism until I fully understand it.
In saying that, I find the best way to learn is to get involved and not sit all day on the fringes watching others. I’ve joined various communities, am a member of a DAO and have small crypto investments so let’s see where this takes me. Wish me luck! 👨‍🚀
Right, let’s get to it - time for this months roundup 👇

Hardware Showcase
This month I found 3 aesthetically pleasing new hardware pieces to discover.
  • 1. Nothing Ear: £99: stunning transparent veneers to highlight and celebrate the craftsmanship. Built-in noise cancellation.
  • 2. Computer-1: £195: a build it yourself a flat pack, sheet metal PC computer case. Shame I’m a mac guy.
  • 3. The Light Phone: $299: A phone without distractions. Includes alarm, a calculator, directions, a simple music player, and a podcasts tool. The phone also supports hotspot tethering.
⭐️ Community Showcase
This month I want to share an awesome newsletter I’ve been reading called ‘Jungle Gym’ by Nick deWilde. Jungle Gym is a bi-monthly newsletter that helps you build a more fulfilling career by integrating your work and life. This past issue is one of the most inspiring posts I’ve read in a while, where Nick explains why he left his job to “go independent” despite a great career and newborn.
🐦 Tweet of the month
Andrew Gazdecki - founder of Micro Aquire posted this tweet that really resonated with me. It’s a strategy that has worked pretty well for me in the past launching side projects. Writing content about the problem and solution really helps you formulate and articulate your idea, but also allows you to validate the concept through your writing and learn from what is resonating with your readers. It’s a simple but yet effective strategy.
Andrew Gazdecki
Start with a company blog. Write about your startup’s idea, the problem, the solution and share it with people. Get customers lined up prior to launch. Simple.
⚡️ Flashback
I’ll leave you with BusinessWeek’s 1996 assessment of Apple.
“There was so much magic in Apple Computer in the early ’80s that it is hard to believe that it may fade away. Apple went from hip to has-been in just 19 years,” wrote the publication at the time. And Fortune said, “By the time you read this story, the quirky cult company…will end its wild ride as an independent enterprise.”
Apple’s CEO at the time, Gil Amelio, split the company into 7 separate divisions, each responsible for its own profit or loss. In just the first quarter, Apple saw a $740 million loss. That loss led to analysts and journalists predicting it would perish.
The company ultimately turned it around by Q3, which saw a $30 million profit, and by Q4, had brought back co-founder Steve Jobs, who had resigned 12 years earlier. The rest is history.
That’s it for this month!
