Daily Habits Checklist (September 4th – October 1st): “Pain + Reflection = Progress”

Pretty poor 4 weeks. Main culprits are the usual ones: visiting friends, short fun trips, and alcohol. Also, perhaps a changing of priorities away from writing & music to videos (10 East) & crypto.

Hopefully the next 4 weeks will be better, or maybe I will need to change my checklist again to reflect new priorities.

Introducing 10 East, a digital media brand we’re starting in Asia

So over the past month we auditioned and then interviewed on camera a group of girls who live and work in Taipei. We asked them what they liked and didn’t like about Taiwan, their relationships and stories about dating, and generally just got them to share about themselves on camera.

It was a first experiment and the final edited clips are below. We call the project 10 East, and hope it will become something much bigger: a media brand that tells stories about life and love and laughter in Asia – but content that appeals to the world. Think Buzzfeed, Refinery29, PopSugar…but with a touch of China, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, Singapore, the Philippines, and on.

We have lots more ideas including:
-Celebrity gossip and entertainment news
-Feminism and women’s rights in Asia
-Simple fun language learning
-Viral content in Asia – what’s the latest, why it works
-TV show and movie recaps
