This is a long quote/excerpt from Adam Robinson I’ve been holding onto for a while, from Tribe of Mentors. Worth considering, especially if you strive to work in a data-informed product organization. Virtually all investors have been told when they were younger — or implicitly believe, or have been tacitly encouraged to do so by … Continue reading Adam Robinson on Understanding →
Tim Ferriss’s new book Tribe of Mentors is out. I have finished it already, and can say it’s really excellent and I even liked it more than Tools of Titans even though I’m not in this one. 🙂 As I said in a message to Tim: Curious how Tribe of Mentors is different from Tools … Continue reading Tribe of Mentors →
In the lead-up to WordCamp US we’re in right now I chatted with Brian Krogsgard at Post Status in an hour podcast and we spoke about the core releases this year, Gutenberg, React, WooCommerce, and WordPress.org. On the 29th I’ll be talking to WP Tavern, so tune in then as well.

[Gauguin] was penniless and adrift, trying to paint his way through the devastations of his dying marriage, his rejection by the cliques of the Parisian art establishment, and the precarity of his friendship with Vincent van Gogh, who shortly before Christmas had assaulted him with a razor and, after Gauguin’s departure that evening, used the … Continue reading Gauguin to Olive Garden →
Matias Ventura, the lead of the editor focus for WordPress, has written Gutenberg, or the Ship of Theseus to talk about how Gutenberg’s approach will simplify many of the most complex parts of WordPress, building pages, and theme editing. If you want a peek at some of the things coming down the line with Gutenberg, … Continue reading Potential of Gutenberg →
Nautilus Magazine has an interesting look at the question of Is Matter Conscious? Worth reading to learn what the word “panpsychism” means. Hat tip: John Vechey.
