INFLECTION News - Uncut Gems Was Trash / Botnet / Engineering Marketing Success
By Frank Denbow • Issue #30 • View online

Startup Showcase
Botnet is a social network simulator. You’re the only human along with a million bots who are obsessed with you.
This started as a fun thought experiment around how can we use bots for good? What if there are always people to talk to and share opinions with? Maybe the world would feel less lonely (albeit simulated).

.@chamath is on point re: the general trend. People who give up their principles, whatever they are, for short-term gain aren't just standing on shaky moral grounds, they are engaging in an inability to see the future. Aligned values will come to play an increasingly vital role.

Why is “having paying customers” not an option? 🤷🏻‍♂️
