I’m Sam and welcome to my once-a-month newsletter. Each month I share the latest digital products, fascinating articles and resources from some of the best new and established online creatives.
🆕 Updates
  • Some big personal news! I’m joining Softr 🎉 After almost 5 years working with early-stage founders as a Lead Product Manager at a Startup Studio, I wanted a new challenge and to take all my learnings and focus on one product. As a few of you might know, I’m a huge advocate of no-code tools and their positive impact on the creator economy. Personally, I believe Softr will be a huge contributing factor to the future of the creator economy and democratising the ability for non-technical people to create digital businesses.
  • As if that wasn’t a big enough change I have also bought my first house and moving into it as I write this 😅
  • I updated a post I wrote a few months back. See below.
  • I launched a small tool over the weekend called Beta Directory.
  • Lastly, the newsletter has officially reached 3k+ awesome subscribers! Thanks to everyone who shared it last month, it means a lot. If you know anyone else that might enjoy this please forward it on 🙏🏻

🐦 Tweet of the month
It’s a fascinating human construct the Mon-Fri, 9-5 workday - and for the most part, it’s remained unchallenged for over 100 years. As Steph Smith points out with this great graphic we have yet to challenge this construct since the industrial era and its inception from the great manufacturing titans like Ford Motor Company. Does it still need to be this way?
Paul Millard also wrote a fantastic piece on the Future of Work which dovetails nicely with this tweet.

It's 2021 and the world still functions like we all work for Ford Motors in 1914 https://t.co/XdkxvxgwUV
⚡️ Flashback
I’ll leave you with this Seiko TV Watch launched in 1982. It included a 1.2-inch liquid crystal display screen set in a standard digital watch. The watch was sold in 1982 in Japan for 108,000 Yen (approx $425 at the time). The tiny TV can receive channels via an external receiver, which connects to the watch via a cable and connector and had 5 hours battery life. Pretty impressive right? well, you can’t see the huge receiver. If you fancy one of these rare watches, expect to pay between $500-1k for one. Check out this demo here.
That’s it for this month!
