πŸ“ƒ A4 paper, fake meats and Gen Z

#64 September 6, 2022

Hello there!

I spent most of the week finishing up the next version of Karma that I've teased earlierβ€”I'm super happy with how everything looks and even had someone beta test it out and fixed up some more things!

I've also worked on a light mode (!!) which looks pretty amazing (in my unbiased opinion, obviously), and I'm hoping to release it all later this week. ☘️

  • The data model behind Notion's flexibility "We built Notion on a framework that allows information to stand on its own, free from any constraint or container, instead putting the power in the hands of the user at a granular level. That framework is built on blocks. [...] The block model makes Notion unique, and it’s the foundation for how Notion thinks about bringing to life what pioneers thought computing, as a medium, could become."

  • Why Instagram is Losing Gen Z: We Asked 100 Users to Compare TikTok vs. Reels "Your app is only used by grandmothers. Your user base loves videos full of dad humor and posts for Metamucil – the exact opposite of teenage cool. So experiments that boost cringe content and annoying baby videos increase watch time; clips of high schoolers lip syncing to Dua Lipa decrease it. You’re stuck in the short-term optimization valley of A/B tests."

  • How sustainable are fake meats? "Marketed to meat lovers, plant-based burgers like Impossible and Beyond claim to taste like the real thing and to have far lighter environmental footprints. Here’s what the numbers have to say."

  • I ran the worlds largest DDoS-for-Hire empire and CloudFlare helped "As the operator of theΒ largest DDoS-for-Hire empireΒ in the history of the internet, I have a unique perspective on the situation CloudFlare finds themselves in."
