The Jared White Show

Twitter is Like a Decentralized Twitter

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey dropped a bombshell announcement yesterday about the decentralized, open-protocol-based future of Twitter, and The Jared White Show is here to talk about what it means for the "fediverse" (the existing federated social networking world of Mastodon, etc.), why Twitter is even doing this, how Dorsey has never been a clone of Zuckerberg, and much more. This just might be one of the most important episodes of the show to date!

The touristy areas in and around Portland, Oregon are—for the most part—actually awesome. Multnomah Falls is no exception! It’s not that long of a drive from the city, and the views are breathtaking. I’m glad the upper bridge is open again after the past fires!

This has been a year of extremes. Some of the most emotionally painful and gut-wrenching moments I’ve been through in close to a decade. But also some of the most thrilling and rewarding times in my entire life. For all of my journey, for the yin and the yang, for the growth, for the joy, for the loss, for the art, for the love…I am truly THANKFUL. 🙌

OK, I went to see A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood last night and

OH MY GOD I’M AN EMOTIONAL WRECK…PASS ME THE TISSUE BOX STAT

😭

(Seriously though, it was a great film. Just wasn’t prepared to blubber like a baby through half of it!)

On my last day in Seattle, I strolled across the campus of University of Washington, and oh wow was that a magical experience! Hear me geek out over the amazing architecture and dream-like walking paths, plus additional thoughts on the nearby shopping district of University Village.

Top vloggers who have reached the pinnacles of their career tell us not to obsess over views and relative performance over time and other metrics of “success” in their creative field. But that got me thinking: what SHOULD we obsess over? How do we know we’re crushing it as content creators? What should success look like?

Here are my four measures of success—they’re by no means the only ones possible, but I believe they’ll serve you well no matter what you’re making as a content creator.

  1. Have Fun
  2. Grow in Your Craft
  3. Be the Content Creator You Wish to See in the World
  4. Streamline Your Pipeline

If you’re pushing hard on all four points, good for you! You’re well on your way to becoming a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious creator. =)

Well OK, it’s one of the top “pop up” markets (meaning everyone completely sets up and tears down everything in a day) in the United States which is open year-round. I think that’s pretty awesome. Plus lots of great scenes of traversing downtown Portland in the fall!

Apple TV+ Review Roundup

Ryan Christoffel: Apple’s streaming video service, Apple TV+, launches this Friday, November 1st. Ahead of its launch, today the first reviews dropped for the service’s tentpole originals: The Morning Show, See, For All Mankind, and Dickinson. Overall the critical takes are extremely mixed: though I haven’t seen any reviews that are outright negative, and there are a few which are very positive, the majority of reviews seem to lie somewhere in-between those two extremes.

I am having a really difficult time getting excited about Apple TV+. I think at the end of the day I just don’t like the idea of Apple, the computing devices company, becoming a Hollywood-style entertainment studio. It smacks of the 90s when Microsoft was trying to be all things to all people. I’m more understanding of Amazon doing TV shows…Amazon has always been a company that sells media to people (starting with books).

However, there is another new Apple service I’m very, very happy with: Apple Arcade. I’ll have to write up a whole article about it soon…
