#15: Clubhouse is Amazing
Updated: Aug 16, 2021
I had no idea what Clubhouse was 1 week ago. 1 week later, after diving into the app, I'm blown away.
Clubhouse is a live audio app that allows people to listen to or actively participate in live discussions around super compelling topics. Nothing is recorded. When the room ends, that conversation is gone forever.
By removing the barriers of physical location + video (set up your backdrop, requiring you to always be on while looking at the camera, staying put in a camera appropriate setting etc), what you have left is your voice.
Your voice, your insights, ideas + perspective on any topic you choose to engage with and curated by you to engage with the folks you find most compelling.
Personal, professional or somewhere in between, Clubhouse democratizes access to killer conversations that are the personification of what the best talk series and intimate conferences are all about.
Focused on what you're most interested in with incredibly interesting people you might or might not have ever met before. Establishing new relationships that extend well beyond the room.
You jump into any room, start listening without any obligation. If you want to engage, raise your hand and a moderator can call you up on the stage. If not, all good.
The vibe I've experienced is incredible.
People are all about the community, how can they help by sharing knowledge and even more specifically, how can they help specific individuals with specific, nuanced challenges.
For example, I was in a Sports Marketing + Tech room hosted by Nick Hayden last night and I heard a 15 year old aspiring Sports Journalist contributing to Sports Illustrated for Kids share that she wants to meet the Toronto Raptors sideline reporter.
A person in the room, well connected to the Raptors, responded "done deal and I will follow-up with you after this and make the intro".
I mean, wow.
