My quick take on Clubhouse

(Originally published at The Conscientious Capitalist)

Since being invited to join earlier this month, I’ve only been able to find time to drop in to a handful of Rooms. These are my early thoughts. I’d love to see yours.

Top on my list is getting to listen to interesting people talk about a wide range of topics.

Yes, it’s kind of cool being able to listen to Bill Gates (the limit of my “celebrity” cadre so far) talk about tech, AI, and Covid, and to hear physicists and astrobiologists talk about the Fermi paradox.

That is to say, there’s opportunity for guilty pleasures.

And, yes, there are rooms seemingly for any interest.

Clubhouse has done a pretty decent job of matching up my profile to suggested rooms.

Clubhouse room Future of Education

As I write this, I’m listening to a conversation in a room called, “Future of education.” It’s really quite interesting to hear people from all over the world talk about their experiences, their struggles, and their unique vision for education.

So far, I’ve only asked to speak in one room. It was a room about professional selling — shocker, right?!? — and it was a fun experience.

I haven’t started a room yet, but it’s something I’m considering.

If you’re looking for a decent primer on Clubhouse, let me recommend this HubSpot blog, What is Clubhouse? [+Should Marketers Care?].
