There was a time when John McAfee was mentioned alongside the names of the biggest tech pioneers of the 1980s and ʼ90s, with a fortune to match. His eponymous company, McAfee Corp., would become a household name thanks to its Windows-focused antivirus software. "Although John McAfee founded the company, he has not been associated with our company in any capacity for over 25 years," a company spokesperson said in an email. Suddenly wealthy after selling his company, McAfee spent the next two decades relatively quiet. In the documentary "Gringo: The Dangerous Life of John McAfee," a former business partner accused McAfee of drugging and raping her in Belize.

Crypto companies are about to start a marketing blitz with investment and interest rising. Exchanges like Coinbase, eToro, and Blockfolio have hired ad agencies in recent months. But crypto companies have attracted $8.6 billion in funding so far this year, easily surpassing 2020's $3.4 billion total. The crypto exchanges are still new to traditional advertising channels like broadcast TV.

For more than a decade, BuzzFeed has competed against other digital media companies for consumer attention. BuzzFeed announced its intentions to become a publicly traded company Thursday by merging with special purpose acquisition company 890 Fifth Avenue Partners. BuzzFeed will be the industry's guinea pig -- the first of its kind to test public investor appetite. Vice, Vox Media, Group Nine, Bustle and other digital media companies have all discussed going public via SPAC with varying timelines. Still, BuzzFeed will need to convince potential shareholders it can capture those digital dollars rather than watching them flow into Google, Facebook and Amazon.

Many creators rely on established tech platforms and build leaner "storefronts" on Instagram and YouTube. If you're a creator, you need to be thinking about next steps.
