Greetings all,

In this week’s episode of Ventures, I (https://www.getairchat.com/will.impact) 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.

The next Woo Woo

For those that don’t get the reference, check out this classic commercial from Adobe.

TL;DR; → markets are fickle and there’s always going to be a “next thing”.

Still, when Naval cranks out a thing, it’s worth paying attention to.

I’ve been playing around with Airchat along with everyone else. It’s an interesting mix of Clubhouse/Spaces meets Snapchat meets Voxer meets GenAI.  

I still think there’s at least two fundamental social apps that need to be built that I’m noodling on and testing (one regarding geography/cultural discovery, and one regarding more skeuomorphic trust networks) - but Airchat seems like a fun amalgamation of what I like about audio networking and Snapchat.

We’ll see how it grows. You should follow me at username “will.impact” (more coming soon about why I chose that username).

Have a great rest of your week (and don’t forget to fill out this form for the June 9th AI event in Seattle I’m hosting).
