Fast Five
Brought to you by :

Hello Omni Talk Fans! Anne and I survived Groceryshop, and we are here to tell you that it was probably our favorite trade show ever.

We were busy as hell, and by last count, we delivered four stage presentations, streamed live nine times on LinkedIn, recorded seven podcasts, and probably drank our collective weight in dirty vodka martinis.

But the best part was that it felt like a real honest-to-god tradeshow again. The pandemic gloves/masks were off and everyone was so excited and enthusiastic to be there and to learn from one another.

To celebrate, Anne and I hooked up our microphones one last time Thursday morning on the couch of our hotel room at Mandalay Bay to bring you this week’s Fast Five.

In this week's Fast Five Podcast, Anne and I:

- Discussed the significance of Amazon’s record number of Prime sign ups during its Thursday night NFL broadcast last week

- Showered praise on Walmart for its new livestreaming efforts with Firework

- Got right and steamy mad about Instacart’s Connected Stores platform hokum

- Loved Lowe’s decision to create digital twins of its stores with NVIDIA

- And, mark this day down folks, also closed with a second salute to Walmart for its plans to offer customer checking accounts

There’s all that, plus witchy women, Anne singing Kanye, and the difference between “extra dirty” and “filthy.”
