The Daily Talk Show Episode 47 Tommy jackets What is up Happy Wednesday night or
or just shuffle we're just moving our back office that feels good. Yeah When you bad posture it feels almost like a stretch you're saying doing naughty past. Yeah, yeah,
feels like a straight you know what I mean? Like, like,
Oh, really just, I can let me tonight, almost like planking on the chair right now
doing now the skillet making things as well. But that's more more than half a plank. We've got some for actually now. Well, I've got some feedback. Okay, I see feedback for your feedback from you feedback that has come through to me to my personal page. I actually wanted to just tell you so that we can work out how this is even come about. So I've got my personal website Tommy jacket.com. Yeah, I've got my company page for is being code.com today.
And then I've also got an email address Hello at frisbee and co.com, which is more you know, admin stuff. People when Amy's working with me to aggressively and I got an email through to my Hello at 15 car. How can you for the show? No, for my personal website, so you get Tell me. I'll just I'll just tell you the email so it's come through to Hello. Which Yeah, okay, go on. And it's from a guy named Jonathan Silverman. bionic. What's his business? bionic squid is just going to free plug Phuket. Dammit, anytime. Hi, Tommy Ray, and then he's put some text in there from my website. Tommy jacket.com people in my life have now come to accept the fact that I feel everything it's except not. Except. And it's kind of a big difference. Just FYI, Goodluck Jonathan fucked up. I've made him his failures. I I can't believe I haven't been pulled up earlier. Yeah, I can't believe I didn't factor to pick up that one. You should know the past me. But I know the difference. I just. Uh huh. But how we set like, look at the email. And he's what's the what's the title of the email?
So it's quick website typo feedback.
People in my life have come to accept that. Okay, who? How
is he? Is there a strategy? Because I went he's actually a website developer.
What do you reckon? Is he does he listen to the daily talk show? He's
a theory. Tell me.
I mean, this is an interesting, this would be a real fucking market like growth hacking. Yeah, you could do a search on Google. Yeah, quoting come to accept
and do the incorrect way like a phrase that people find up. Yeah, quote it. So you only get sites that appear on there and basically troll through all of them and find in it. Maybe he's gotten a safe, you wanted to maybe add value or connect with people, he could get a virtual assistant to go through and do this griping. And they have to assign sign. If they find it, they need to find a an email address. So then they go through a couple of layers, and they find what the virtual system finds one in the spreadsheet.
Interesting. Hi. And so we're on the same path. Because my mind got to that as soon as I saw that he had a website development business. I was like, this is like in a sort of boots on the ground marketing strategy. It's very clever. I think
it is. Because now I'm talking about I wonder if we just typed in, out of curiosity, if I typed in come to x, except that spelling how many times let's, let's just do it. And then we email them. Jonathan is contacted them to accept. So you spelled it e x see it as in like, except something. So it's time to start saving combat?
Does it does it do what? So it's,
it's done? A Do you mean, come to expect? Yeah,
Well, yeah, thanks, Google. There's all these things that has come up. So it's all these people who have made the same mistake. So the first one is a core question. There's, um,
he go, there's an insurance company on there about us page, they're called myki collation insurance.
And then if I do a command F, so I can search Yeah, they've Rick come to accept maintaining the same high level of service that our clients have come to accept for the last 20 years of service? Yes,
like me, you know what I should do?
And you know, I can do
we're going to contact them. I'm gonna do what Jonathan did right now. And I in Melbourne, now they're in Arizona, Phoenix.
All right. Should I just
do it? So what's your What's your purpose? Okay, well, good. Just out of saying what people if people
right back. Yeah,
and we can say what the tone is. So maybe I say I was just randomly on your website. And notice that there was just this spelling mistake. Well, I think I think there's always that just me trolling.
is Jonathan trolling me he hasn't learned anything he isn't isn't high. Might I've been watching your staff or, Hey, man, we build websites, you know, let us know if you want us to fix it.
Or he doesn't need that stuff. He's He's banking on the fact that
I heard a podcast and we're going to talk about his business. No, no, think about this. We need to actually we should hang on a sec. Let's let's try call him. It's got a phone number on there. I don't know what Where does he live here in
Massachusetts? I think we what I did was actually looked on. So on this email. Yeah, and I saw it kind of came up when you're actually in
Gmail. You can press it on there like little icon and it tells you some details about I Massachusetts, let's just check really quickly. Okay. three in the morning.
Just gonna turn on my phone. Should we just say food goes to voicemail yesterday so I can be sick? Yes. So we calling Jonathan from Massachusetts just to say thanks. Yeah, as always, we're not gonna wake him up. I won't. We won't say the number of it on air. We'll, we'll keep that. Yeah.
617 or eight at the first batch. Okay. 379210.
It's coming from Australia.
he's gonna lead through growth hacking.
such a different time
service Digital Services Agency? We're sorry we can't take your call at the moment Please leave a message
hi Jonathan. It's Tommy he just calling from Melbourne Australia just want to thank you for the correction on my website I feel like an absolute idiot I was obviously meaning accept or not accept thanks feel free to give me a call back Yes. Big soon. Thanks Mike. bye
yeah that's really fun. It's really cold in radio Josh back to the Jonathan we need a we need to have
we need that can be our second guest Jonathan clearly didn't answer because it was three I want in the morning luckily we didn't wake him up here we show fucking we're to that if he listens to the show he
i think i think it's too we'd if he was listening to the show because we've got quite a few listeners over in America that are popping up in different areas. Someone outside of Massachusetts someone new Boston so I thought maybe it to them. But
show weed man What a fucking great little strategy if this isn't what he's doing. It is a great little fucking ag. How can
we do it for video? Maybe we could find
Are you so yeah, was out
Nice. How you could we specialize in videos. I don't know if it's the right strategy. Because the thing is that
a friend of mine was doing some social media and they used a hashtag. And someone contacted them and said, Hey,
just so you know, that hashtags already being used for something else. And the reaction was a little bit like, like, it was a really nice thing for the person to contact and say hi, but it also had a little bit of the are you having a bit of a go like, so I'm
a bit I'm going to be damn reactive. The best of times, but I definitely feel that because I couldn't spell as a kid. I still fucking hardly can. I've talked about on this podcast. I've learned most of my spelling through writing him out. Yeah.
And making factor and Jonathan a Malik.
JOHN. Where we you? Jonathan? When I was in high school, and couldn't fucking spell. So yeah.
How do you feel about Jonathan? So initially,
I was like, oh, latest piece of shit. And then I was like, Ah, that's a mistake a bit is fix it. So I fixed it within three seconds of your email. And your skin got all prickly in you felt a bit? Oh, well, if you feel almost just a bit
for the equivalent of like having a bit of toilet paper stuck on Yeah,
I prefer that was a mistake. What about a shitty your roof? shitty pay? Yeah, not a good, nice to know. Not a good conversation to have. But it's, I definitely feel like I'm a bit triggered by not doing it. Because, you know, I'm not that great at Yeah, in my head. I'm okay. It sort of talking out loud. and communicating through that just ad lib. And but when I come to refining my words on a piece of paper, it's not my skill. And scientists easy. I did intrigue me. But you know, I've got friends who English is their second language and their social media people. And they really struck they're really good creative writers. But I just fucking struggle on spelling bee. Hi, because it's a killer. It's like you can't every single time they post something they need people. He's a business idea that I've been thinking about.
It's an app. Yeah. And you load in what you're going to say. And it actually you have a couple of different options. You can pay a subscription at a certain amount of words per month, that will automatically send it out to a bunch of people, these fucking grammar nazis or whatever, you want to call them spelling Nazis who pick up on all this stuff. So you could be we should probably use a different word as is how you could be one of the Nazis, you could you could you could be one of these checkers, right? Yeah, I imagine this. So it could almost turn into a game where you could we have thousands of checkers around the world. And they read your copy. And they highlight any issues that they think of having. And so they can arise. And they can have different levels. So they could be like a red is actual issue where they've used around apostrophe, right, then they could be like an orange mark, which means, hey, this is like a brand name of yours, but I just I'm not sure. And so you have a few of those things. And then it's every single time you do a post, at least 50 people check it for you. And then it appears as approved. So when you submit something, it all happens within five minutes, you'll get a response, whether like, 99%, you're okay, everything is done. And if you're a Chica and you check the spelling and grammar and stuff, you get like a point. And those points end up turning into hash or vouchers for things like becomes a bit of a game where it's like these fucking Jonathan who spends these fucking time we can actually get a push out and it can be push notification based, right? So it could even be I've got another dumb ass to fit exactly like, Oh, it's like what's fucking tell me written this time. He could be like, I'm sinking. Could be medical. Like you could have people who know more stuff that medical things or video things and they can correct and it's just like, it's correcting on a grand scale. Because that's like, you need five people to have highlighted this mistake for it to then proceed. You could also have checkers. Late internal. So say you work in social media. You could say that you need at least three people within your business to check it before it goes live. Yeah, I like it. Neither. This is James and I
my mate in the office. We have a we it started out as I've got a million dollar app idea. Now. It's a million dollar app ID shit. It's a billion dollar app. I did a million dollar apartment. You really know the app ID heroes? Did you like? What do you really think? mines? Good? It'd be quite hard. What's the unit? Yeah. Getting people on board, refining the how people actually make money? Yeah. Is there anything? There's an Jonathan's out there just to do it for free? Because he might have to find out. Yeah, so it is. Yeah, working that out the other
one very quickly wiki caption so you can upload any video that you've made. And people start fields, people. People's make changes, and wicked. The way Wikis work. They updatable by multiple people. So that's why we keep Hey, do you have different people. And so what would happen is, rather than using computer stuff, you actually have people around the world adding to a wiki. And you could do a private or public wiki. So a private sorry about the beeping, someone's reversing their track. If you're, if you have a private wiki, it could just send it to you make to make an update or people within your team or clients can do the original captioning. And then someone can go through and edit it.
I thought that's where you're going with the first one. Because I thought you're gonna say people champion, fix the mistake in the quickie. Get into fix the mistake, the more points you earn. Yeah. And so you're seeing it's like, accept or accept. Yeah, Jonathan just earned a point because he saw mine. Yeah.
And that's even a game of fine like that. Yes. uses a sick idea. Don't think
so much work. It is isn't it? There's a lot of work in that. But you know, I've been an Apple ID here. Go on a run past you. So this came from the experience of Amy having to book into see a specialist. Yeah, and she wanted it down pretty fucking quickly. Because, you know, she was worried and she wanted to see a specialist about something, there's something doesn't matter. But it's like, for instance, if you do your day to day and you really want to fucking say a really good need doctor or just someone quickly to get your MRI done. Yeah. to then get your surgery that
I was calling around these places trying to get me to get a scan and I called maybe five and she called a few and he took finding the right times, blah, blah, blah. I thought of like,
basically an app we jump on. You have problem? Yeah, you put in what their problem is determinate soccer and dislocation they recognized need an MRI. So that's what you're getting. You're looking for an MRI, it sends it out. And what happens is there's some on the ground work from internal the company. It's like Uber Eats. Uber Eats within a doctor's surgery. So they have a tablet that so lives in me. And then within half an hour, you have a burrito,
spit. So you've got you've got a tablet. Yeah, that gets put into doctored surgeries or MRI clinics that want to show their ability. You know, they're not even showing availability, because I thought getting onto their system to see their availability would be the hard bit. Yeah, but the other beauties put on like a job. And so people just go where available within the next two hours. Boom. And so it sends a notification back. Do you want to be in schools being half an hour? Well, leaving Glenn lively so yeah, not that far. Fact. I get to get my MRI and half an hour is a chip off the top for the connector.
And so you could it could be anything from fact, I need to get a mole checked ASAP. Yeah, because I'm fucking worried about it. And then you can boom, put it onto the app doing center that you accept the job. You've got your credit card into the app and the doctor surgery get paid instantly. You get if you get your check and done. I like it. Yeah, like that. There's some,
but there's an app that I forgot what it's called that a friend was telling me yesterday. It's called like meal match or something. There's some sort of one where it's like, a bunch of cafes around Melbourne have like, been a part of it. And you
know, it's cold now. I don't, but I need to tell you something. Okay, go ahead and tell me this yesterday. Go. Uber. eats? Yeah, this is fucking interesting. Okay. Jamie Hampton told me this. He's brother on the weekend. Got a booger so that I think there would have been sort of around the Brighton area so you probably don't have as many places to get if you're in Chapel straight or calling one because this shit loads of really cool restaurants. They saw this thing pop up. No. It's burger will get a burger. It got to their place. And it was a burger. It was okay.
People are starting their own kitchens at home group ID and using Uber Eats to deliver the food so
you can get so this I know a house in Elwood that has a commercial kitchen because they technically bakery yeah but what about a few
things though? It's all based on ratings
yeah but it seems like what would you call a gray market like it becomes a market with insider market yes like people doing this stuff it's like
little their own say you mom is Pastor mom is passed to me it's almost
like what I remember being in Philippines that was like a common thing right where it's like I think I've told you that before where it's like it's very very common that every family sort of has their little business that they're running so if they're good cooks you can go there and you pay a new age at their house
we had delivery the other day and we got it in a meal deal right we go to burger fries
onion rings good deal good deal good I wish I would have been just a fucking weekday would have been a Wednesday night anyway What do you Humpty Hump Day exactly anyway we get the we get the food delivered it's missing the onion rings ball share right yeah so what what do you think the correct way to remedy that is what do you think they should do in that circumstance credit you money back or give you now do you work out how much he credit back well by Sunday on your main costs so what they did i know i think is is fucking bullshit so like whatever it would have been like 40 something dollars for this like we got two burgers two chips and an onion rings and and drink really living living the dream don't get the onion rings Bray was very silky. She said I sort of wish more not I know that I wish that they gave us one fries and one onion rings rather than to fucking fry yeah makes
I agree with you. When I say break it was probably make the the funny thing was they were like there was only two options you get a credit instantly from delivered or you could wait 10 days to get money back praise like okay, I'll just get money back print clicks on it. The refund that she got. What do you think out of a $44 thing? What would you allow the onion rings? Five bucks. Minimum? $1. Whoa.
That's is that doesn't make sense as how do you know the most fucked up thing you've ever heard? That doesn't make sense.
How did I acquire I ended up emailing them about it.
What's great about working for somebody else brings it full time employee you can do shit like that she was
actually doing it on the clock with full stack when we were in Oakland. What are you doing like a melon delivery was she went about this shit guy. Yeah,
that fucking annoyed me a little bit. Any bullshit. I know that you've got money back from Uber over a bit more Uber he used to be so I reckon so. When Uber Eats first started I was a beta tester on Uber Eats so brain I both got a $200 voucher to us we probably use it within a few days he's will having breakfast lunch and dinner right we spent a few grand on it in like over a couple of months it would have been like it was like 18 maybe two grand over two months anyway the because I weren't charging delivery credit cat
you know that much of a bola yeah
I knew us yeah just racking up Uber Eats debt and the best kind of debt yeah that's a good debt bad debt or braids
a lie I am
they were at that time they were at a point where they were testing everything because well beta testers obviously so if the delivery draw at the beginning the drivers had to it was policy that that was meant to bring the food to the door yeah he's a thing there's not parking and around our place so they've never delivered to the door and so every time I'd be like did not deliver to the door and they would apologize and give us like sometimes a complete refund sometimes $20 credit the amount of credits that I got and you could see as they went more mainstream they just fucking they obviously had a budget aside yeah for credits and then they slowly just
got rid of them what's your favorite takeaway like what's your mind we live so close to shops to
sort of ways god you're lazy cap yeah it's true I love it. Um but a lot of I love that was almost merged into one set in fucking lazy Cambodia. Yeah,
and whatever I'm actually taught us to, I don't want to
always taught us or ever since you've had a kid No,
we we would definitely pretty loose I mean, I for a while eating out tapes and just wasting your money. Yeah, and you definitely have refined it a bit. But I don't, I don't want to pay five bucks to live refine. My point is it is so close. So I just the justify justification is not non existent. Because I go, we're walking down. We're getting a pizza, which is 200 meters from my house. We could walk and get tie whatever we want. I feel like we're just in Abbotsford where we are. You probably agree with just
outside like, there's a few options. You've got Dr. Morse returns. And that was actually something I was gonna say before returns are an example of a shop or restaurant that opened up a second kitchen, which is just servicing delivery, like Uber Eats. Yeah.
And so they just rock that sort of thing. Jimmy grants in St. Kilda, I think pretty much do they have one? Yeah, until you open up. But for ages, they had the kitchen running, it just wasn't open. Yeah, that would, there was Uber driver after delivery driver after packing food or a driver going in grabbing their food, because I'll just servicing the local area. So you probably get down to like, meanwhile, almost a hand you probably get five eight K's from St Kilda to service all that area with rates that they wouldn't connect up to the other one. Which is nice. So it was a good idea. So it's, it's amazing. Sitting in a store and you hear the dueling.
Yes. Like the cash money coming through. I think something. There's a burger place in Abbotsford. They spend a lot on their filled out an inmate went there. I think the chef said or like the owner said something like 80% of the business was Uber Eats Wow. And then fucking just spent all this money on this like crazy fit out to make converted actually into a parking bay for Uber driver. Good it How about this, there's actually a
supermarket in the states that have banned Amazon. I think it's like, I think it's Amazon. That from like parking. So I think that there's a there's certain companies now that like though, you know, buying groceries or doing different chicken of like, I feel like
hang on Amazon do delivery for groceries.
And I don't completely understand I'm going to quickly Google it. But the what I was seeing in the states is there's like there's these services where you can get people to come and buy your groceries and they just go to regular stores and get wearing t shirts and shit and if I can go and collect the stuff and you you can write them I think so like you want like a good person who's going to get the best avocados and shit like this. That's cool. But yeah, no, I remember saying
this. Yeah, the car park banning Dwayne mentioned yesterday yesterday about Uber killing the self driving cars and autonomous
autonomous what was it over? Yeah, it was it was Uber Uber. It was an autonomous Uber car. So means it needs somebody in the car. But it can drive but yeah,
so regular at the moment. They're having like I can people in the in the car. Just sort of keep keeping an eye on it. But a lady cross the road? 10pm jaywalking. She was in a box was sort of photo really lock on the ground. I really No, I just. I read pedestrian. This is
the hard thing. News for progression in this world is a few casualties. Yeah, okay. Uh huh. And that's such a like, what is it like a
factor I'm so Brian did from Ty but like it's a it's like the thought of you heard that. I'll just quickly do this. Sorry. Google Drive car. Yeah, it's like they're talking about autonomous vehicles that have fully autonomous by themselves Yeah, they have the option of crashing into one person or 4.0
Yeah, so it's the it's the morality Yeah, morality, that's fucking word. Yeah, so it's like yeah, it's deciding on okay, if they is can the car pick up? All right, there's an ID year old and a 20 year old and it's in a position where it's was left or swerves right yeah, it does it know that it probably should knock out the 80 year old because it's only got a few years left yeah it's to doc but do you think that's the F like is that the
I think that's what they're having to think about what would
that be would that be your approach
is just terrible thing to think that
because you have a kid nothing more than this right now yeah that makes sense yeah based around you if you're yeah if your measurement is nice left yeah
yeah and so that I guess that's the the area that we don't know was like what are we what are we gauging does the like maybe we could maybe we could really game a phi and actually might camera things they have a certain amount of karma points the car knows how many comma points you have so you returning the wallet might be enough just to notice work on the other way but it is just the bunch of math equations these cars are doing
so many equations per second like they're scanning the car in front and they can see the car to two things ahead so they're making judgments yeah well the
amazing it's using that like radar tech or whatever it is Sona I can't remember which one the fucking amazing thing that I've seen you can type it in like type in like YouTube on YouTube like Tesla car actually accident detection or whatever have you seen this where
a Tesla like a beeps right when you get too close to a car yeah how you're saying it can say a few cars ahead it can pick up if there's going to be a car crash ahead so this is video and you can see this shit all like heaps of YouTube videos if you type it in driving along in a Tesla the cars in front of you have a collision before they have a collision your test that goes BB BB BB and slows down because the car in front of the other car they've gotten too close to one another so they're about to potentially crash and your Tesla knows that yeah and slows down your fucking amazing actually Elon Musk and the helicopter dad binoculars Matt Yeah if I can set it off isn't any insight would you I've always wanted this like what do you How well do you think you need to be doing to drop 100 k on a car like 100 k isn't is a lot of money but it's not like exorbitant amount of money yeah
when you when you when you've got a business that's doing okay your family spend I really did i do you think you need to own a house to buy a Tesla and now there'll be plenty people who don't have Tesla's its privacy priorities right yeah you'd want some fucking money in the but you wouldn't want to be taking also a business can buy a Tesla yeah a business can't buy a house
yeah sure I didn't know this I don't know that
we can't ride a house off yeah just don't mania money from the business can buy a house in LA but so it can become a business expense yeah because you're driving to and from work and this appreciation all those things you can't get what the house so that's probably why Hey to business owners have nice cars but it is I really I should buy my we should buy a farm
every this trip. Maybe I'll get a Tesla
Bray. We're not going to Europe. But we can go I'm really nice ground road trips. Search Sam Harris on Google talking about autonomous vehicles. He's a very smart guy similar to Josh and
very similar while you're
bad talking about this stuff, and talking about
morality, morality, and also via
artificial intelligence and some scary shit that he's awesome to listen to.
I'm done. I need food. Bridges. texted me. What do you want from Uber? eats? We had a guy everyone is the daily talk show. Remember, send us an email and feel free to correct Tommy spelling and high that's h i at the daily talk. show.com and we have that p o box two which we check nearly every day. It's p o box 400. Abbotsford Victoria 3067. We'll see you tomorrow. Bye.
