Are you prepared for these 5 common Web3 job interview questions?

Bitboy celebrates token for guys named Ben. I say a lot about this in the podcast episode below (be sure to listen to Unkle Bonehead and I makes jackasses of ourselves. Okay, it was mostly me, but Unkle Bonehead laughed. Diversion aside, I do want to make this one point in print: This is plain silly.

@kryptik makes a pretty good case about how Hive is losing the numbers game. There is a lot to admire in this screed. But The Infinite Monkey Theorem is a joke. People keep repeating it, but there's little evidence of it being true. Outside of that, his broader point is well taken. If no one can clearly define "quality," why is it raised up at the herald of social media success? Not just on Hive, but on Web3 in general. Quality content does not a rich man make.

@danielallan.eth discusses music NFTs and the Family Affair. The NFT craze has moved beyond folk art and memes. Music and literary NFTs are taking off, though music NFTs beat literary to the punch. I recently learned that Hive has its own music NFTs, and of course, there's the digital art marketplace known as NFT Showroom, also on Hive.
