The “MEAT” Edition

FIXED!

DON’T WORRY GUYS, FACEBOOK IS ALL FIXED NOW:

I am in NO way qualified to write a thoughtful look into Facebook as a business nor am I qualified to discuss its leadership. I leave that to all the talented business writers out there…and Kara Swisher. (See what I did there? 😇) We are only here to discuss the memes and the tweets that went down throughout this news cycle. BUT in case you do not care about business news or were traveling somewhere there was NO connectivity last week or you just truly block out anything related to Facebook…quite simply, Facebook effectively changed its name to Meta. Basically, it has a parent company now called Meta for which products like Facebook and Instagram fall under. Many tech media predicted it would be called Meta in light of Mark Zuckerberg’s increasing fascination with the “metaverse” which basically means we will never have to leave our homes again and can instead live in a virtual world and be a flying gorilla sitting around a boardroom…but I DIGRESS. Here is an actually good explainer of it:

SHIBA!!!

SHIBA INU: NOT JUST A DOGGO:

OK so you might be a crypto person and therefore this will feel like old news and certainly like an OLDS (that me) talking to other olds about this and you may be rolling your eyes HARD. BUT for the majority of you, you’re either still trying to understand crypto-currency or you sort of get it but not in a way you can comfortably discuss it at a dinner party or there are some of you who are like FUCK THIS NO THANK YOU. I get all of you. I am somewhere in between all of them, but the thing that was stopping me from understanding it was the ability to actually play around with it as all the places to buy crypto were so freaking hard…but then PUBLIC (full disclosure they are a client but a client because I LOVE THEM SO MUCH) introduced the ability to buy crypto on their platform (everywhere BUT New York at the moment) and it was like OK GAME ON.

AND JUST A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS (AND SOME DESPICABLE ONES TOO…)

TECH HEAVY this week I know. Meta verse. Crypto. Welcome to the new world. BUT there were a few other things this past week so do not despair…or maybe actually do.
