StoryApp Icon

The Stories media format is now used by billions of consumers and copied by every major social network on the planet. In this very special episode, we take a peek inside the call that started it all. This was recorded a decade ago, in 2012, and was just found in an old, dusty place on the internet.

The link above gives you an inside look into the creative process for how the Stories new media format, and StoryApp, was concepted and created from scratch. It also includes the animated emoji that understood emotion from your voice and reacted accordingly (referred to as the Artifact in the call).

Ingenuity Podcast by Everett Advisors

We just dropped two new episodes on the Ingenuity podcast:

  1. Incentive Design — Compensation & Web 3 Internet Economies
  2. Duration & Growth Rates

In the first episode, we take our experience from years of designing monetary incentives for employees, salespeople, executives, and the board of directors of the biggest companies in the world and apply it to new economies talked about in Web 3 circles. There’s one fatal flaw that most white paper designers forget.

As we’ve described in prior episodes, Duration Beats Everything™. So in the second episode, we tell you why that’s not the full story. When you combine duration with a growth rate, the continuation of extra cash over time can create magical returns for you. And this is why the venture capital community is so obsessed with finding these very special businesses.

Collect ’em all.

Do you want to win the infinite game of business? Where do you even start? We think it all starts with people, more specifically, talent. And once you have the talent, then it becomes all about how they work together and what direction are they pointing. Then it’s how you increase speed by iterating faster than competitors. If you do that, then the outcome is pre-written. You will grow at a line so steep it’ll give you a nosebleed.

A bit cheeky, sure. But we’ve seen it work in multiple environments. With that, let’s get into the show.
