After winning the $WRITE race in June, Jackson Dame was the first person who helped me take my first steps in Web3. He jumped into the crypto bandwagon this year and became the Content & Community Lead at Rainbow. He’s become one of the voices that influence me most in the space, especially when it comes to making Web3 more inclusive and accessible to all.

Patrick Rivera is one of the most forward-thinking creators I've ever got to talk to. As a software engineer at Mirror, he works — and writes — at the intersection of crypto and the creator economy. Here is our interview. Enjoy the read!

Hi Patrick, thanks a lot for accepting this interview! I have been following your writings for some time and I have SO many questions to ask you. In my opinion, you’re the creator who puts the most effort into making technical topics like crypto, Web3, and NFTs (non-fungible tokens) much more accessible. And this is precisely what I wanted to do with this interview. How about starting this conversation by defining and comparing these three terms using your own words?

Just follow the white rabbit at your own pace, I’ll see you through the looking-glass. Here is our conversation. Enjoy the read!

Hi Sari, and a huge thank you for accepting this interview! I’ve been waiting for this moment for a long time and it’s a real pleasure to have you as a guest for my newsletter. I discovered your work a couple of years ago through the fantastic Check Your Pulse, that you describe as “a tech and startup newsletter designed to make you feel more human”. How did it all start?

Max Nussenbaum is the Program Director of the Writer Fellowship at the hottest accelerator/school/tech mafia of the Internet : On Deck. I had a great time talking about the future of writing with such a charismatic polymath. Here is our interview. Enjoy the read!

Nice to meet you Max, and a huge thank you for accepting this interview! Let’s start with your background: you’ve been alternatively a startup operator, a founder and a freelancer in product, design and software engineering. You’ve also been the coauthor of a business book, Oversubscribed. So I was wondering: why writing? And how did it come to your life among so many interests?

October 2020 marked the first anniversary of the “passion economy”. The term was first coined by Li Jin in a now famous blog post. Since then, she developed her investment thesis and founded her own venture firm, Atelier, to help entrepreneurs build the future of the passion economy. I had the pleasure to have her as a guest for my newsletter. Here is our interview. Enjoy the read!

Nice to meet you Li, and a huge thank you for accepting this interview! It’s a real honor to have you as a guest for my newsletter, which I started a little over a year ago, a few weeks before you gave life to the amazing concept of “passion economy”. To start, can you tell us more about the context in which you published your first article on the subject?

One year after our first talk, Anne-Laure had written more than two hundred articles that brilliantly illustrate how writing can transform one’s life. Her company Ness Labs has become an impressive library documenting her many experiments between creativity, productivity and neuroscience. The good news is that you’re all invited to learn more about her journey.

Hi Anne-Laure and thank you for agreeing to come back for the first anniversary of the newsletter. A year ago, you chose to put writing back at the center of your life, between the creation of your Maker Mind newsletter and almost daily publications for your company blog Ness Labs. So to start, can you tell me more about the benefits this new habit has brought to your life?
