    The Radical Minutia

    (EDIT: Audio has truly been fixed now... Sorry about that.)

    On Saturday, September 4th, I scheduled a Twitter Space entitled "How to Explain iOS 15 to Your Mom" a few hours in advance, not necessarily expecting any speakers or guests to show up, but an old friend and two new ones did! They indulged me for a near-2 hour conversation about a whole lot and I really appreciate it.

    Why I Didn't Follow You Back

    A recorded Twitter Space hosted by Sam Sheffer

    The Twitter Follow Explanation Gist (and identical Medium post.)

    Blocked by Kara Swisher, which was only resolved thanks to (yet again) Casey Newton

    “3 Reasons Your Twitter Follower Ratio Is More Important Than You Know | Inc.com”


    If you follow more people than follow you, what you are in essence saying to that person is "I followed all these people, but only some of them found me interesting enough to follow me back."
    Not only that, but you are also saying "Yes, I may have recently followed you, but don't take it too personally, I like to follow a lot of people, so really, the fact that I cared enough to follow you doesn't mean I am genuinely interested in what you have to say."
    Not doing great on the first impression scale...

    Clubhouse

    The "underrated rappers" room which was still overwhelmingly dominated by Big KRIT.

    NO THOUGHTS, HEAD EMPTY - The Third Culture Kids and their 100% sincere enchantment with the doge meme.

    "Metadata Mondays" From "The 808 Wave"

    "Clubhouse Feels like a Party" | The New Yorker

    There was something pleasant about meandering from conversation to conversation, as if I had walked into my own home to find a conference in full swing. But I also wondered, Why did I let all of these people into my house?
    ...
    It is hard to shake the feeling that everyone on Clubhouse is selling something: a company, a workshop, a show, a book, a brand.

    Brad Varol, Father of Whyp

    Brad Varol, Father of Whyp

    My conversation with Bradley Varol - a London-based developer who loves Hardstyle, drives an imported Toyota Chaser, and has bigger aspirations for his two-month-old audio sharing service than Vocaroo, Clyp, and Instaudio, combined.

    Support Whyp via Ko-fi.

    The Whyp Press Kit

    Discord

    Twitter

    Facebook


    We talked a lot about the future, but I think it'd be worth my time to thoroughly analyze Whyp's usefulness in the present, which you'll see soon on both Extratone and The Psalms. If you want to really go deep, you can follow and comment on its Issue in The Psalms' GitHub Repository.

    Once again, any thoughts of yours even remotely adjacent to the subject would make my day - do reach out!

    I thought it was lost forever!

    This test render is all that remains of a mix I intended to spend a lot of time on in 2018 to accompany my big ole' essay: Bandcamp: Streaming's Secret Savior.
