If you have an iPhone or other iOS device, you may not realize it… But you probably have about 1,000 open mobile tabs in Safari on iOS right now.

Sucky Internet Copywriting Insight…

I first learned about Laura Belgray through the Sidehustle Nation podcast.

The result is that they tone their message and language down… They repeat just. the. facts. ma’am.…

A Boring Substrate

Elon Musk offered many useful insights during his interview with Joe Rogan. One was about the probability of all of us living in a simulation.

Elon used the example of filming an action movie… Watching the movie be created is incredibly boring… Not cool at all. It looks hard, overly complex, confusing and slow. But what comes out the other end is an exciting distillation of the most exciting things about being…

Limbic Resonance and Success

One of the best insights from Elon Musk’s interview with Joe Rogan was his comment on limbic resonance and how powerful it is in media. Our limbic system is driven by animal instincts, our amygdala, aka our “lizard brain”. The level of social media platform success may be in direct correlation to the platforms limbic resonance… Or its ability to strike a nerve within us that makes us react.
