So many people writing good, evergreen content in newsletters.
The issue is that this model ***umes you’ve been a subscriber from the beginning.
There’s no easy way to look through archives by topic or category.

On one hand, politicians will crack down and break up FAANGs, while ad revenue declines as impressions drop.
New models like Patreon and Substack are still growing, and authenticity carries a premium. Regardless of MAUs, social media as a sector is screwed as an investor.
