Platforms 20.47 — A weekly digest

👋 A weekly round-up of what was written or said at the intersection of #platforms, #marketplaces and #business, and stood out.


DoorDash and Societal Arbitrage:

Doordash capitalized on a much bigger mistake: a labor market in flux, a society not ready to grasp with the power of technology companies, a political system in complete disarray, and a genuine shift towards online purchasing.

The future of online education:

I proposed this idea of Universal Creator Income. Basically, creators get a stipend from the platform if they are creating great content consistently. .. You are a publisher functionally at that point, but the way you structure it can be really different from a traditional publisher.

Understanding Airbnb:

Airbnb’s capital assets are both the most ubiquitous on earth and the most adaptable, because what Airbnb offers is the package of home-plus-host. An Airbnb unit meant for an overnight stay is not that different from one meant for a six-month escape, so Airbnb was able to deploy its assets to where they’re most effective.

😎 Adapt, aggressively—The Diff
