TIKI Talk Episode 51! TIKI Vibe Check with Mike!
I am pretty sure "vibe check" is something the youths say...
I didn’t know what to put here so here’s a backdrop from our studio

TIKI Talk Episode 51 is a classic internal podcast with Shane and Mike, and serves generally as a vibe check for Mike, Shane, and the state of TIKI in late February 2023.

Listen in to learn how Mike’s been feeling personally and regarding TIKI at large, Mike’s pirate ship mentality, Mike’s reflections on TIKI’s past, changes in data economics, AI’s influence on data, future legal decisions, Búzios updates, the creation of the doc portal, UI, and better APIs, finding a brand voice for dev docs, communicating with pilot customers, Mike’s feelings on his new content, and Shane’s reflections on recent content and Búzios. Complete with the usual random jokes and rambles, as is tradition.
