    I’m so(!) grateful for this podcast. Just noticed that I was going down the wrong route again- “chasing the algorithm”, as you put it. Social Media is such a complex creature, it has a way of sucking you into a black whole full of doubt and worries. One really needs these reminders over and over, to see the light again. Thank you both for providing this! It was very engaging to hear.

  2. Great chat guys!

    Dale, love the Toms analogy… I find it fascinating how our culture strives for this overnight success. But you think about context & already Facebook is an infant in the lifespan of what the future holds, but they are moving into 15 years in business.

    Unless you have some sort of special power that alters space & time… I’d say that’s a bit more than overnight. ha!

    Cheers
