A friend of mine is wading into the speculative NFT market. Now for those of you who don’t know what an NFT is – “A non-fungible token (NFT) is a unit of data stored on a digital ledger, called a blockchain, that certifies a digital asset to be unique and therefore not interchangeable. NFTs can be used to represent items such as photos, videos, audio, and other types of digital files” says wikipedia. To those still scratching their heads – welcome to the club. My friend purchased an NFT which, he informed me, is an exclusive sports-related clip. This led to the following exchange (click the image for full-size view):
I mean, I would but it hurts my brain.
I told him I was going to get an NFT of Charles Barkley getting off the team bus. How much do you think that would be worth in three years?
Anyway, here’s my friend trying to explain NFT’s to me…
Food, on the other hand, is something I DO understand. Yes/No?

Had another Powder Mage pitch today. I want to say it went well but, truly, there’s no way to know. I mean, everyone was polite and asked thoughtful questions. Nobody stifled a giant yawn like that time I pitched MGM, or hung up partway through the discussion like the creator-director of that financially-challenged “trailblazing” green-screen production (Inn all fairness, in the latter case I WAS pointing out the logic inconsistencies in the pilot he must have spent at least most of an afternoon writing, so I suppose it was understandable). Anyway, hopefully time (and the execs we are pitching) will tell.
Question for the room: What was the rudest behavior you have been witness to in a zoom, phone or in-person meeting?
