Ecosystem Clubhouse: Marcin Brukiewicz scored an invite to Clubhouse and started spending hours on the audio app. Brukiewicz, a Polish physician, joined rooms discussing the future of healthcare and medical technology, and met people from all around the world in spaces like the Healthcare Innovators Club and the Global Health Club. Brukiewicz sometimes talks, but he mostly listens. “I’m an introvert, so I don’t like to speak up,” he says.
He’s also not a native English speaker, and sometimes finds the language barrier intimidating. Then a friend complained that it’s difficult for moderators to know who to call on in a large audience, and Brukiewicz had an idea: What if there was a Clubhouse feature where you could type your thoughts?

Some ecosystems are marine, others freshwater, and others yet terrestrial—land based. Ocean ecosystems are most common on Earth, as oceans and the living organisms they contain cover 75% of the Earth’s surface. Freshwater ecosystems are the rarest, covering only 1.8% of the Earth’s surface. Terrestrial, land, ecosystems cover the remainder of Earth.
Terrestrial ecosystems can be further grouped into broad categories called biomes, based largely on climate. Examples of terrestrial biomes include tropical rain forests, savannas, deserts, coniferous forests, deciduous forests, and tundra. The map below shows the broad distribution of biomes on Earth.
An ecosystem can be defined as the biological community of living beings, communicating with the physical environment and other nonliving components. It can also be defined as the chain of communication or interaction between the living organisms and their environment.
An ecosystem differs in their size, which can either be small as an oasis or vast as an ocean. The two main components of an ecosystem are:
On Clubhouse, it’s no different. People have been working within the app’s constraints to make it work for them. For example There’s no way to share images, so some people use their avatar to show charts or other visuals that may be relevant to a room.
There’s no way to share notes or links, so some people add link trees to their bio where more information can be found. Clubhouse does not have the UI to show which rooms are on-the-record, so people add red dots in emoji to the names of rooms being recorded.
The effort to monetize Clubhouse is in full swing. The $4 billion audio app recently announced its first monetization feature for creators, but a new startup is looking to beat them to the punch.
Clubmarket is a newly launched third-party app that facilitates dealmaking between brands and influencers on the app by allowing Clubhouse hosts to monetize their content via partnerships with brands. Basically, it does what Clubhouse creators have been discussing since the app gained popularity late last year: Allow creators to make money.
“A lot of people are creating a lot of really great content,” said co-founder Tomer Dean, tech entrepreneur based in Tel Aviv, Israel. “And they’re doing it all for free. It should and could be a very cool business, but it should be paid.”
A booming U.S. economy is rippling worldwide, leaving global supply chains struggling to keep up and pushing up prices.
The force of the American expansion is also inducing overseas companies to invest in the U.S., betting that the growth is still accelerating and will outpace other major economies.
U.S. consumers, flush with trillions of dollars of fiscal stimulus, are snapping up manufactured goods and scarce materials.
U.S. economic output is set to expand by more than 7% annualized in the final three months of the year, up from about 2% in the previous quarter, according to early output estimates published by the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta.
We opened by discussing the human traits exhibited on social media today. It is up to these companies to design platforms that encourage the human behaviors they want to see.
Think of it in the same way we would design a building. People act differently in a comfortable home, unlike an abandoned warehouse.
Leaving it as a free-for-all will always see the louder, more aggressive traits win. In the real world, barbarians ran the place before we built up some laws and institutions.
Clubhouses can seize the fertile land left by Facebook and Twitter. How it builds on it will define its lasting prospects.
We know Twitter and Facebook will leverage their existing data and networks. If Clubhouse mimics this framework, stealing its audience will be a straightforward task. The incumbents have all the resources.
