I gave up trying to keep up with the yoof years ago. Too much time online wasn’t a healthy or wise use of life. But I miss understanding memes. The compromise was to let someone else distort their brain and summarise it for me. Ryan Broderick’s Garbage Day is that brain rot. It covers the zeitgeist—in as much as their is one online—in a critical way. He’s happy to call web3 a pile of ponzi bullshit. And it’s littered with funny tweets and TikToks that I was never going to see myself. If the phrase oh no they’re trying to milkshake duck jorts the cat” made no sense, give it a try.
