Joe: “Crypto is non-sovereign and theoretically can’t be manipulated. Where as every other currency that’s run by a sovereign entity can be, if not is, manipulated and we’re seeing it all over the world,” (20:45).
Joe: “There’s a financial issue we’re seeing play out in front of us. The disinformation or no information getting out on certain channels. It plays to smaller content creators and influencers. Because if you have state run media or bias media run by certain entities … that level of trust has started to move away from traditional media outlets to smaller players.” (29:19).
Robert: “I think Salesforce announced this too early … There was no reason for them to make this announcement public … what is your message for those that push back on this story. You have to think it through and they didn’t.” (41:11).
Joe: “Could that go to NFT AWS service that Salesforce would run? Sure! Does it make sense to have it in the sales and marketing area because brand people are going to go crazy in with this stuff? Absolutely! Makes perfect sense to do this." (43:52).
Robert: “The conversation you end up having with someone else about TikTok is fascinating to me. It inevitably turns to ‘what’s in your TikTok feed?’ And it tells you about the person’s personality.” (49:48).
