Hello Interconnected Readers:

I’m thrilled to launch our audio product: Interconnected Voices. All episodes are hosted on the Interconnected YouTube channel, so please subscribe to it!

Each episode is the recording of a discussion I had with top analysts, investors, entrepreneurs, and senior operators to explore companies or trends that impact the intersections of tech, business, money, and global geopolitics. Each episode is also supported with a simple slide show of the key discussion highlights and takeaways, so it’s both worth listening to and worth watching.

We are launching with three episodes of discussions that happened in the last two months:

Episode 1: What Does Agora ($API) Do? Guest Panelist: Rui Ma  (Tech Buzz China)

Episode transcript HERE.

Episode 2: Global Developer Growth; Guest Panelists: Rui Ma (Tech Buzz China) and Monica Xie (Matrix Partners China)

Episode transcript HERE.

Episode 3: Building A Global Company from Day 0; Guest Panelist: Clint Smith (Discord, ex DataStax, MySQL)

Episode transcript HERE.

Each episode has a transcript that is in both English and Chinese (Japanese upon request). Even though audio discussions can only happen in one language, we are committed to making sure their substance and value are delivered in multiple languages. Future episodes will include recordings of discussions like the 3rd Company Building webinar I'm doing Justin Cormack, CTO of Docker, Tuesday, April 6th, 10AM US Pacific Time. (You can still register HERE. Clubhouse link HERE)

This product has been in the works for roughly a month now and has been in my head for even longer. We all absorb information in different ways -- some like to read, some like to listen, and some like to watch and listen. As I referenced in a previous post “Building a Bilingual Newsletter: 2020 Edition”, knowledge exchange happens via multiple mediums, so we’d like to cover as many of them as possible, as we continue building this 10-year project. While writing will still be the main medium of Interconnected -- and my personal preferred medium of communication -- we hope Interconnected Voices will be a nice supplement to your experience.

Special thank you’s go out to Tony Nagatani, my old friend of many years from our Obama days for producing the audio, and our Interconnected research and product intern for bringing the visual element into each episode and transcribing them.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please let me know! We are always looking for ways to improve, build stronger information bridges, and bring down walls and barriers.
