Big Tech News Last Week
  • Bitcoin is down ~50% from its all time high and brought the whole crypto market down. The cause was a mix of Elon Musk’s energy concerns, China’s miner crackdown, and mass deleveraging. 
  • Even if your Facebook settings are set to not track location, they still do via the exif data from your photos
  • Cool to see Ford coming out with an all electric version of their F-150 truck.
Deep Dive Posts
  • Marqueta - a financial infrastructure company that provides virtual card services to Doordash, Square, Instacart, and others filed their S-1 to go public. Here is a teardown of the filing.
  • I don’t agree with everything in this post but here are the arguments to not work at a startup. Always good to hear the other side.  
  • Here is a profile of Shein, a startup you probably never heard of doing $10B in revenue last year. They are pioneers in the category of “real time fashion” going one step further than fast fashion or any of the traditional e-commerce concepts we are accustomed to.
