Airchat: A new AI-enhanced social media platform
In this episode of Ventures, I (https://linkedin.com/in/wclittle) reflect on my initial experiences with Airchat (https://apps.apple.com/us/app/airchat-talk/id1469462351), a new social media app that leverages AI/audio/video to mimic “rooms” at a dinner party by stitching together moderated clips (which they call “chits”). I walk through my impressions, hopes, and reflections on 20+ years of social media…discussing where we may be heading in the overall conversational metaverse landscape.

Will Generative AI widen or narrow productivity gaps in the labor market?
In this episode of Ventures, I (https://www.linkedin.com/in/wclittle) discuss cases for and against the skill/productivity gap widening in light of Generative AI such as ChatGPT and Midjourney. On the “for” side, I discuss a YouTube video showing how to go from MidJourney to Figma to Code, and I show how this - and tools like GitHub CoPilot - enhances the work of already-skilled programmers. On the “against” side, I show a recent study from the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) that demonstrated GenAI most greatly enhancing the productivity of novice and low-skilled workers.
Using Generative AI for Startup Landing Pages: From Mixo.io to Builder.io
In this episode of Ventures, I (https://www.linkedin.com/in/wclittle) discuss options for startup founders at the earliest stages of their journey using Builder.io, Wix’s Artificial Design Intelligence (ADI), ContenBot.ai, and Mixo.io. I discuss how rapidly advancements in this field are happening that are disrupting the “old-guard” of Wordpress and more recently Webflow. With Mixo, you can prompt an AI with a single sentence and within 30s it will generate a complete landing page for you, including standard subscriber management tools. From there, you can modify as needed and publish.

The Internet of Places :: with Greg Gallimore, Joel Fariss, and Mike Anderson
On this episode of Ventures, my guests Greg Gallimore (Digital Experience Design (DXD) Leader for Gensler’s Northwest region), Joel Fariss (Gensler Strategy Director), and Mike Anderson (CoFounder of Alphi.xyz), and I sat down for a conversation exploring how Web3 will transform the built environment. Physical places are now inextricable from the Internet. Our buildings have become “smart,” collecting, sharing, and applying intelligence to the “user experience” of the built environment. The metaverse has opened the door to entirely immersive virtual experiences of a place. With internet mediated communication, physical proximity is no longer a precondition for access to community and knowledge. What does all this mean for the future of human experience, collaboration, and community? We discuss multiple aspects of this at length in this episode.
