That First Sales or Marketing Hire | Learning by Shipping
Find a way to have a few “what do you do” conversations with senior people in the job function. Maybe take some time to ask them to define for you what they think the steps would be to get to the outcome you are looking for, rather than to discuss the outcome. These “what would it take” conversations will help you to craft a skills assessment and talent fit.

Frictionless Design Choices | Learning by Shipping
Therefore the real design challenge is not simply maintaining minimalism, but enhancing a product without adding more friction. Let’s assume you built a product that does something very exciting and has a very low friction to usage and does so with a minimal feature set. The next efforts are not about just watching your product, but about deciding how to address shortcoming, enhance, or otherwise improve the product to grow users, revenue, and popularity. The risk with every change is not simply failing to maintain minimalism, but introducing friction that becomes counterproductive to your goals.

Washington’s War on Russia » CounterPunch: Tells the Facts, Names the Names
“The primordial interest of the United States, over which for centuries we have fought wars–the First, the Second and Cold Wars–has been the relationship between Germany and Russia, because united there, they’re the only force that could threaten us. And to make sure that that doesn’t happen.” … George Friedman at The Chicago Council on Foreign Affairs, Time 1:40 to 1:57)

Alan Klement: Focus On Causality, Skip Personas
20 years ago, when data was precious and scarce, personas made sense. Analysts needed to build models somehow and so they filled them with assumptions.  In today's data rich world, there is absolutely no need to make things up. The data is there, you just have to grab it.

Design for Time Well Spent
We believe in the possibility of better design, that let's us connect without getting sucked in. And design that let's us disconnect, without missing out on something important.

And we believe in the possibility of an economy that’s built to help people spend time well. An economy in which products compete to create net positive contributions to people’s lives.

Purple Reign - The Baffler
Yahoo’s present, blinding moment of self-devouring synergy is but the logical culmination of all the counter-journalistic practices that so transfixed company management during my tenure there. And what this process portends is only too clear. For all the clumsy rhetorical lip service Guy Vidra pays to The New Republic’s hallowed intellectual traditions, this is what his vision of a nimble digital news product finally translates into: a vaguely journalistic veneer strategically designed to conceal a rancid interior of “elevated” advertising. This, among countless other reasons, was why one could never make the case for sustaining a stable culture of reporting and editing at Yahoo News. At one bygone conclave of the Yahoo managerial elite, a colleague of mine tried to stress the need to redouble our commitment to our existing model of independent newsgathering, and his plea only earned him this spiteful rejoinder from a fast-talking Santa Monica power broker: “Past is prologue.”
