Yo, Nic here

Decided to go back to my roots and add a good ol' gif this week. 

For the last few weeks I've been pondering to myself on how I was going to write this, but I thought the best way was just to let it flow in the natural "Nic" way of things, so I'm going to do just that! 

After 71 consecutive issues of sending out The Slice, I've decided that it's time for a change and a new face will commandeering the newsletter. This decision is not something I have taken lightly, but has been about a month and a bit in the making. I'm currently in this very weird transition period of my life where I've said goodbye to the previous version of me and this new version of myself in now culminating into the man I hope to become. With this comes a new career and new life path that both scares me and excites me at the same time and I felt that now is maybe a good time that I let go and make room new projects and ideas. 

I'm the type of person that will always have some project going on, and boy do I have a backlog of so much cool shit that I want to do! The Slice was originally just a lockdown experiment that became one of the best decisions I've ever made. Not only did it teach me so much about people but also about myself and what it really takes to create a micro business and how to succeed at it. 

So what's going to happen to The Slice now?

Absolutely fucking nothing!

I've decided to pass the torch onto Jonas. He's both a creator and also a founder. We connected way back towards the begining of the year and we share a lot of the same values and vision, and I know that he will take the newsletter to new heights, something that I know he can do a lot better than I probably could have. I will stay on as an advising editor, so I'll probably pop up from time to time, but I'm super to stoked for the future and for what Jonas has in store for all of you guys. He'll be introducing himself to you in next weeks issue 👌

But dont worry, I won't completely drop off the map as I do have a personal newsletter over here if you'd like to stick around and follow my journey.

The metaverse is bullshit because it already exists, and it's called the internet. 
We have Neal Stephenson's 1992 novel Snow Crash to thank for popularizing avatars as our digital personas, from early internet message boards to full-body VR CHAT. We also have Snow Crash to blame for the absolute hell we find ourselves in today, as every tech billionaire on the planet slobber all over themselves as they declare the metaverse—the next phase of human culture!!—is within reach.

Games, NFTs, crypto, VR, AR, the blockchain, they're all wrapped up in this idea of a virtually-integrated society in which our Fortnite costumes will carry over to our Onlyfans accounts and we will never, ever have to log off. Read more

The lesson to unlearn.
The most damaging thing you learned in school wasn't something you learned in any specific class. It was learning to get good grades.When I was in college, a particularly earnest philosophy grad student once told me that he never cared what grade he got in a class, only what he learned in it. This stuck in my mind because it was the only time I ever heard anyone say such a thing. Read more

Evolution of the dad
Lee Gettler is hard to get on the phone, for the very ordinary reason that he’s busy caring for his two young children. Among mammals, though, that makes him extraordinary.

“Human fathers engage in really costly forms of care,” says Gettler, an anthropologist at the University of Notre Dame. In that way, humans stand out from almost all other mammals. Fathers, and parents in general, are Gettler’s field of study. He and others have found that the role of dads varies widely between cultures — and that some other animal dads may give helpful glimpses of our evolutionary past.
