I don't want to knock this kid's creativity, but I remember playing a lemonade stand flash game literally over two decades ago.

Congrats on the 1,000 subscriber milestone. Whatever you do next, I hope it includes crypto coverage! What is up with NYT on crypto coverage. So weird that it’s editors have such a blind spot.

1) I am glad to be part of that first 1,000 paid subs. Yay!
2) I just spit coffee on reading the Gitcoin bulleted list. Bravo, Ms. White, bravo!
I am glad to see Kenya is asking questions about the very questionable Worldcoin.

Woohoo! The comments are THE cool place to be!
Anyway, what I really wanted to say is that the one kid's college admission consultant is absolutely killing it. Next up is a ghostwritten book.
Congratulations, so 1k today, next target 5k?
Keep the uniquely informative journalistic reporting,
Seriously there should be a lot more than 1k who literally “need” your commentary.
