Hi and welcome to the 43rd Edition of this email.

I wish¬†you¬†happy¬†vibes from all you’ve achieved in¬†2017¬†and a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.

Here in Melbourne it’s time to go surfing, have fun times¬†at the beach with friends, eat delicious food and enjoy travels.

This newsletter has easy learning ideas for you.

Get Up To Speed With Bitcoin & Crypto’s.

After watching and reading loads¬†of¬†bitcoin,¬†blockchain, cryptocurrency, ethereum talks and posts, I’ve found “The Internet¬†of¬†Money” book written by Andreas M. Antonopoulos¬†the quickest, most engaging listen. It’ll take you from not understanding to really clever, easy-to-comprehend ideas.

If you’ve been thinking you need to learn about blockchain or have a twinkling¬†of¬†interest, there’s something there for you to uncover.

Here’s how you can listen to Andreas’ book for free:

1. Sign up with Audible to get your first book free for 30 days.

2. Login and use your free credit to purchase “The Internet¬†of¬†Money” written by Andreas M. Antonopoulos.

3. On your smartphone download the Audible app, login, then click the image¬†ofAndreas’ book to start downloading the book.

4. Grab your headphones and hit play. 4 hours 8 minutes straight will do it though I like to listen when I’m driving, walking, or while I’m doing something that doesn’t require much attention.

Let me know how you go.

Crypto’s to the end¬†of¬†2017.

With their wider utility, it’s great to see¬†increasing interest¬†in¬†Ethers. I’m interested to watch what happens with crypto values to the end¬†of¬†the¬†2017. Perhaps they’ll be in more holiday conversations and people may have time to setup online wallets and purchase.

Favourite Reads & Listens.

  • Excited to have started using web browser Brave, powered by BAT tokens, on my computer and iPhone. Less bugs than expected (still a few) though enjoying it as a alternative to¬†Chrome.

  • Nick Hand’s videos¬†are a calm, collected, usually fascinating watch. He has a respectful¬†and kind way¬†of¬†delving into the person he profiles. Impressive too as many¬†of¬†short films are gathered as Nick¬†rides his bike around countries.¬† I attended Nick’s Do Lectures video workshop in Wales and it was so good!¬†Next time¬†you‚Äôre in Bristol, visit him at¬†the Letterpress Collective.

  • Thinking¬†about a¬†cryptokitty? or buying a cryptopuppy?

  • Food¬†for thought on blockchain and the future. (thread)

  • Someone made it big on Bitcoin and is now giving¬†US$86M. Will you¬†apply? #pineapples!

Great online presence.

  • Delivering all the answers… this captivating¬†site¬†from Nick Jaffe helps you prepare your¬†adventure. Go stay!

  • Great tweets and replies from¬†Elon¬†about selling¬†hats to fund The¬†Boring Company ($20 per hat x¬†50,000 hats = $1 million). Last I checked he was at 42k and made a¬†Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy joke. So fun!¬†His twitter bio has me chuckling:

Bye!

the DO Lectures on Instagram Case Study

Here’s our latest Instagram Case Study. It’s the DO Lectures on Instagram Case Study and it’s short and so very sweet¬†–¬†just like the Do Lectures.

The day before the Do Lectures Wales Startup event in 2013, we started the Do Lectures Instagram account keen to connect the many people interested in the Do Lectures via another avenue.

Instagram¬†is a great platform¬†for the¬†many of the event participants and those who couldn’t be there.

the DO Lectures on Instagram Case Study

Once the account was started, the Instagram bio and Do Lectures photo was loaded, we posted high resolution, intriguing photos of the 2012 Do Lectures  Р4 photos over the course of the first day with relevant hashtags. Once the event was in play, we posted insights to the event, then since the event, we have posted photos from the 2012 event Рonce 2013 high resolution images become available, we may publish those, though the photos being shared are timeless.

The point here is that the new¬†contemporary Instagram¬†channel aligns well with the brand, plus we’re providing an easier way for followers to see insights they want, and we’re delighting people with photos so they can reminisce, enjoy, engage.

The Do Lectures Twitter account and other online sites has high engagement which is part of the success of reaching 214 followers within a month.

Runway Digital – the Do Lectures result:
A new channel & increased brand awareness via a fast-growing platform.
214 Instagram followers in the first month.
