Why Chefs and Soldiers Make the Best Product Managers
Super agree on military, some of my best colleagues. But chefs? Interesting. 🤔
If you're in tech and not reading @rands (or @cagan), you should. Smart. Understanding. Helpful. Sharers.
Love these every year. Hope this tradition doesn't end ever. Images are so powerful.
Rocketships are hard but worth it. @slackhq is very much a great opportunity for someone.
Another side to an empathy argument. Challenges though include whose definition of morality is used.
Empathy, integrity and character. Yup, I'm a Theo fan.
If you genuinely want to become better, you must surround yourself with people who will hold you to a higher standard than you currently hold yourself.
The stand-up meeting is currently a necessary step in my org. But it's a step toward less.
Pretty sure there are only a couple companies in the world who could write this post on PHP.
There are still many people I talk to who don't get this shift is going to happen. Impacts are too great.
More I work with people at Google, more I get their loyalty. Good list here for employee first thinking.
What people recognize as “bad product management” can almost always be traced back to deeper organizational challenges.
Heck yes. Be happy for another man's success. Hard not to like the culture Carroll establishes.
Be happy for another man’s success.
More of this. Make this "normal."
This thinking on tech leadership seems a bit pessimistic, but I get the gist. Not everyone can or should lead.
My fave tip isn't listed. Shift+Z puts a file in multiple folders w/o duplication. #TypeA
Late on sharing this. But it's a continuation of what we already know. Today's foods are most often fake.
Yup. It's not one site or one domain. Nicely done, @williamwglenn.
Domains. Not domain.
Belinda is indeed super smart. Worked with her (more her reports) at Broadcast.com/Yahoo!. Nice profile.
Amazing perspective/read during late lunch. Hard to not be a Hawks fan, they affect real people. (h/t @mikeindustries).
Great visual of a simple concept.
.@mcuban is right. Couldn't finish this article, it's like a root canal. Thank goodness for 2011.
Not a big fan of listicles, but I've done all 11 (most days) since in the #PNW. And I feel happier, so there's that.
Pretty great stuff in here. And it's not always startup team management.
Not bad for 12-man team advice. 9 & 6 ups the ante. Especially the "stank."
Finally read this. Amazing piece of work.
Seen so many publishers with this exact issue.
For instance, adding a feature to perform a specific function means you will have the choice between literally thousands of plug-ins. It’s a bit like picking an app in Apple’s or Android’s app stores among hundreds purporting to perform the same task. Due to the lack of independent and reliable recommendation systems, you’ll be lucky if you find a good quality plug-in. For instance an add-on that updates in sync with regular Wordpress updates. If it doesn’t, you’ll end up with an important feature of your blog suddenly not working and creating havoc. Not to mention the headaches of erratic rendering between various platforms (web, mobile, browsers), difficulties in making proper imports into a responsive newsletter, a horrible image management system, and buried sub-menus with obscure box checks to solve annoying issues.
Via @trwhitmire. I agree -- there's a balance between active participation and travel participation. YMMV, and that's cool.
I stopped using @evernote last year after ~7 yrs premium. I do hope new CEO can regain lost glory.
Running is an antidote to my mind wandering.
“It’s hard to run and feel sorry for yourself at the same time,”
Many American houses have two cars, some more. Moving to one car seems more likely for next urban house builds than no cars. Condos & townhomes are different.
If you ever skated -- or still do -- these board tricks are crazy cool. Those spiral stairs tho.
I did app installs with my Harmony remotes & use my phone often. This takes it another step to remove actual remote.
Several things in here I've not heard of in my 8-9 months in Seattle area. Bookmarking for future use.
Yup. And yup yup yup.
“Nobody is running a cloud business as a charity,” says Dropbox vice president of engineering and ex-Facebooker Aditya Agarwal.
Pretty solid all around view into thinking about product solutions.
Big if. But a worthwhile bet if Pocket is your business.
If Pocket can convince users that these articles would be worthy of appearing in its app even if it wasn’t sponsored, it could become the home for the future of content marketing.
When I was in my 20s, being 40 sounded old. How naive I was.
Really appreciate what @Google did in partnership with the city for public spaces.
This is pretty true/hilarious. Says the guy happily married and still trying now at 14+ years.
Lots of smoke around the theory Twitter is going to become irrelevant.
Installed @nuzzel myself about 1.5 years ago. It's a must have if you get news from social.
No question Stewart is a leader.
Not comparing myself, but I started this several years ago. Just a couple hours, not 5, but I find it invaluable.
Major spoilers. But unique theory. Got me thinking.
One of the things he said was, at every order of magnitude (1, 10, 100, 1,000, etc) — expect every process to break.
f you’ve logged on to Twitter and Facebook in the waning weeks of 2015, you’ve surely noticed that the Internet now seems to be on constant boil. Your social feed has always been loud, shrill, reflexive and ugly, but this year everything has been turned up to 11.
