Adam Robinson on Understanding

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 16:33:12 +0000

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



Tribe of Mentors

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 23:55:28 +0000

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



Heroin or Aspirin

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 13:45:03 +0000

The company Bayer is famous for inventing aspirin in 1898, which is arguably one of the world’s most beloved brands, and for good reason. But I was surprised to learn that just two weeks earlier, the same three guys who gave the world aspirin also created Bayer’s other big brand, heroin, which was marketed for … Continue reading Heroin or Aspirin



Peak Tea Demand

Sun, 18 Jun 2017 15:59:05 +0000

I found this funny anecdote from a CNET article about the future of power: Power and utility companies must exactly balance supply with what people consume at any given moment. UK grid operators famously must cope with a demand surge after the TV soap opera “EastEnders” ends, when thousands of people start boiling water for … Continue reading Peak Tea Demand



4.8 and What’s Coming

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 13:33:03 +0000

Last week we released version 4.8 “Evans” of WordPress, as I write this it has had about 4.8 million downloads already. The release was stable and has been received well, and we were able do the merge and beta a bit faster than we have before. When I originally wrote about the three focuses for … Continue reading 4.8 and What’s Coming



Remote Work Can’t Be Stopped

Tue, 06 Jun 2017 21:14:42 +0000

Christopher Mims writes for the Wall Street Journal Why Remote Work Can’t Be Stopped, also riffing off the IBM shift I wrote about a few weeks ago. I was excited to see an Automattician Julia featured at the top and a few other colleagues having their voice in the article.



Safe Avocado-ing

Tue, 06 Jun 2017 04:07:59 +0000

I’m glad the New York Times is covering how to safely cut an avocado, because I’ve messed that up 100% of the time I’ve tried to handle an avocado in the past month. It makes you almost want to forgive them for that green pea guacamole thing.



A Delicious Compliment

Mon, 29 May 2017 17:43:54 +0000

Once a little boy sent me a charming card with a little drawing on it. I loved it. I answer all my children’s letters—sometimes very hastily—but this one I lingered over. I sent him a card and I drew a picture of a Wild Thing on it. I wrote, “Dear Jim: I loved your card.” … Continue reading A Delicious Compliment



WordPress 14

Sun, 28 May 2017 02:38:33 +0000

Today is 14 years from the very first release of WordPress. The interface I’m using to write this (Calypso) is completely unrecognizable from what WordPress looked and worked like even a few years ago. Fourteen years in, I’m waking up every day excited about what’s coming next for us. The progress of the editor and CLI so … Continue reading WordPress 14



Profile of Anker

Wed, 24 May 2017 15:08:00 +0000

As a computer accessory enthusiast, I’m excited that Verge did an in-depth profile of Anker, which makes some of the best chargers, cables, and batteries around. It also makes me more curious about the story behind Aukey and Jackery.



What’s in My Bag, 2017 edition

Tue, 23 May 2017 17:05:50 +0000

I am a road warrior who has racked up several million miles over the past decade, and since I’m also working more-than-full-time running Automattic (a totally distributed company) and leading WordPress I need the ability to be productive wherever I can find a comfortable place to sit. I carry a backpack with me almost all … Continue reading What’s in My Bag, 2017 edition



Boarding Wrong Flight

Sun, 21 May 2017 22:45:02 +0000

The Economist writes about who’s wrong when flyers end up in the wrong cities. This has actually happened to me! Probably 7-8 years ago, it was an Air Canada flight from New York to Montreal, and I accidentally boarded the one to Toronto. The mistake was realized when we were on the ground, but had … Continue reading Boarding Wrong Flight



IBM Goes Non-Remote

Sat, 20 May 2017 19:21:45 +0000

Like Yahoo a few years ago, IBM, an early pioneer of distributed work, is calling workers back to the office. The shift is particularly surprising since the Armonk, N.Y., company has been among the business world’s staunchest boosters of remote work, both for itself and its customers. IBM markets software and services for what it … Continue reading IBM Goes Non-Remote



Candy Diet

Fri, 19 May 2017 18:06:54 +0000

The bestselling novel of 1961 was Allen Drury’s Advise and Consent. Millions of people read this 690-page political novel. In 2016, the big sellers were coloring books. Fifteen years ago, cable channels like TLC (the “L” stood for Learning), Bravo and the History Channel (the “History” stood for History) promised to add texture and information to the blighted TV … Continue reading Candy Diet
