One thing about market corrections is that it drives investors and clients nuts. You can see it in the conversations being had on twitter.
But more acutely, you will see it in the media headlines.

Marks Interview with Sam Altman at Y combinator:
Mark Zuckerberg has said that one of the best things Facebook did was invent the idea of a growth team.
“Making it so that we could grow faster was the most important product feature we ended up building for Facebook. The traditional approach to growing and marketing is you have a communications group or marketing team and you buy ads. Sometimes there’s a place for that.. But if you’re actually trying to grow a product, the best levers for doing that are often within the product itself.” He continues: “There’s no magic in the group we’ve built here that other people can’t replicate. It’s just being very rigorous with data and investing in data infrastructure so that you can process different experiments and learn from what customer behavior is telling you.”

"Minneapolis Federal Reserve President Neel Kashkari said Wednesday he’s unsure whether the central bank has raised interest rates enough to tame inflation. Speaking one day after he penned an essay suggesting that rates may have to go “meaningfully higher” from here in order to bring down prices, Kashkari told CNBC that the neutral rate of interest, or one that is neither holding back the economy nor stimulating it, may have moved higher... Some of his concerns stem from the fact that sectors of the economy that normally are affected by rate hikes seem to be ignoring them." Source: CNBC
