🎙 @BenedictEvans #AnotherPodcast on #Publishing & #Media | space too chaotic, reliable: transparent content creators & ethical open web tools --- #tech

I see highly transparent individuals using open web tools ethically as the best bet. Hence next quarter prototyping on RSS curation & recommendations.
