Happy Friday! Yesterday we taped our weekly Fast Five podcast live at the CUE4 (un)Conference in Minneapolis. The crowd was pumped as we discussed Amazon’s new fashion store in London, Google’s new plans with JD.com, Singles Day in China, Instacart, and Shopify’s first physical stores. We also brought back How Millennial are You? and even took questions live from the audience.

P.S. Anne and I will be out at GroceryShop next week. We have a killer lineup coming your way. We will be sitting down with Takeoff Technologies, Myxx Recipes, AVA Retail, Delivery Solutions, and fellow retail influencer and Omni Talk fan, Carl Boutet.
Thanks as well to our sponsors Takeoff Technologies and Uberall for helping us to make it happen!
