“It’s hard to believe it’s been just a year since cryptocurrency ads made a splash in the Super Bowl, because a whole lot has gone down (and down and down) in crypto since then. Marketplace’s Meghan McCarty Carino got journalist and book author Jacob Silverman on the line to look back at the ads from eToro, Crypto.com, Coinbase and FTX in the 2022 “Crypto Bowl.” They might not have aged so well.”

“Perhaps the biggest obstacle to establishing a data culture is building trust in the data itself, making it vital for organizations to have a robust approach to data governance to ensure data quality is as high as possible.

“It’s episode 300! I thought I’d wax poetic on the top 10 things I’ve learned from both running this show, and the guests I’ve had on. After that, I talk a little bit about what’s in store for How I Built It, and where I’d like it to go in the future. Plus, in the PRO show, I talk about what life without Twitter has been like.”

“Technology has not only changed the way we live and work, it is also at the forefront of economic growth in America’s heartland. Remote workers and an influx of new investments are slowly transforming the rust belt into zoom towns, each flourishing with innovation from artificial intelligence and robotics to biotech and military tech. In this episode of One Vision, Theo chats with Rebecca Fannin, journalist, media entrepreneur, and author of Silicon Dragon, Startup Asia, and Tech Titans of China, on tech innovation in the East, local innovation economies in the U.S., and what gives her hope.”
