No Bullshit Estimation Cards
“What research repeatedly shows is that the most reliable productivity metric is simply counting completed work items. In the long run any approach that takes into account weight or size of work items doesn't produce any better results. Why bother then?”

The Pendulum of Bespokiness – this is aaronland
“In 2016 the cognitive overhead of not simply understanding what an object does but what an object might do, particularly when it is connected to the internet is overwhelming, on good days. On bad days it can feel like a betrayal.”

The Referendum – Tim Kreider
“The Referendum is a phenomenon typical of (but not limited to) midlife, whereby people, increasingly aware of the finiteness of their time in the world, the limitations placed on them by their choices so far, and the narrowing options remaining to them, start judging their peers’ differing choices with reactions ranging from envy to contempt. The Referendum can subtly poison formerly close and uncomplicated relationships, creating tensions between the married and the single, the childless and parents, careerists and the stay-at-home. It’s exacerbated by the far greater diversity of options available to us now than a few decades ago, when everyone had to follow the same drill. We’re all anxiously sizing up how everyone else’s decisions have worked out to reassure ourselves that our own are vindicated — that we are, in some sense, winning.”

The Myths of Product Management
“UX Flavored PMs are great at product/market fit. They focus on user functionality & experience, and are good at onboarding, help & error msgs. IN the Silicon Valey, you’ll often hear them referred to as ‘Product People.’ It’s frequently said in a tone of admiration. Product People really get their market and the humans in it, and care about making the right product for them that thrives and survives. They are the unique folks who can combine business and user needs into successful products.”

Maybe we could tone down the JavaScript / fuzzy notepad
“What’s *less* great is a team of highly-paid and highly-skilled people all using Chrome on a recent Mac Pro, developing in an office half a mile from almost every server they hit, then turning around and scoffing at people who don’t have exactly the same setup.”
