The John Oliver Cryptocurrency Bundle: What’s the value now?
In May of this year I wrote an article that looked at the value of the 17 cryptocurrencies that had been mentioned by John Oliver in 2018. I don’t advise writing articles such as these as it resulted in me getting constant ads for “crypto.com, a metal credit card powered by crypto.” It turned out to be an odd time to write such an article because many of these currencies had limped along with very low values for years, only to have shot up in value in the last few months. This was in part driven by Elon Musk pumping up the crypto market for personal gain.
5 Ways Conventional Thinking About Going Green is Wrong
Going green is not always intuitive. There are a lot of business that use greenness as a selling point but that doesn't mean we should buy from them. Here are some points to consider:

Black Widow Script Doctor
Spoilers ahead. I spent a lot of time on tumblr yelling about how there ought to be a Black Widow movie. I shouted about how the character had an established fan base who wanted to see her in a starring role. I screamed about how Scarlet Johansson was a proven box office draw. I bemoaned about how studio executives were stuck in outdated beliefs about how female superhero movies didn’t work.
The violent creator of VHS dating.
Jeffrey Ullman was frustrated. He knew videotape was the future, but he couldn’t seem to figure out how to make his mark. He was filming golfers and tennis players and then letting them analyze their swings on instant replay for $25 an hour. However, this was not profitable. He was having to work as a traveling teflon salesman to make ends meet. Then at a dinner party in 1975 a friend complained to him about meeting men. Blind dates were awkward. Chance encounters were too risky. Ullman was instantly inspired. “Advertise” he told her.
