The first two Hacker Noon Podcast episodes are now available:
Episode 1: Starting Up with CrazyEgg’s Hiten Shah
Episode 2: The Maturing Crypto Market with Grace Kelly
Hiten says stuff like, “It is easier than ever to reach the customer; it’s harder than ever to get and keep their attention. So you can’t just say here’s my new shiny thing — it’s gonna solve all your problems. You have to really spend the time to know what problems it’s going to solve, describe it really precise ways, and basically level up so that you’re actually getting them to pay attention to you because whatever you’re providing benefits them.”
Grace says stuff like, “So it’s a maturing market right now. The teenage years are over. It’s time start looking for a grown up. Right now we have this thing called Fork. It’s like all we’re gonna fork and if you don’t like it we’re gonna fork you. We’ve taken all our intelligence as humanity and instead of improving the world — getting better health, getting rid of poverty, getting rid of war — we’ve programmed our smartest programmers to get people to buy stuff they don’t need.”
I have been listening to recordings — some good upcoming episodes covering how blockchain could combat healthcare’s bureaucracy, the behind the scenes look at a crypo public relations firm, what a decentralized cloud could actually look like, and where funding meets futurism. The Hacker Noon Podcast is available on Youtube & iTunes.
