Hah. I love this so much:
Okay, so, this isn’t what you may think it is. In fact, it’s probably the very last thing that you might expect to read after reviewing the title of this blog post.
But, it is what it is.
My brother just recently launched (this morning) a new small (but growing) bitcoin and cryptocurrency community called The Bitcoin Pub.
If you’re into that sort of thing or if you want to learn more about this growing industry and technology and protocol… then “The Pub” might be a great place to get some friendly advice and counsel.
I’ve been thinking a lot about how to build fundamentally simple systems, especially as it relates to software products.
I think this is one of the best times for me to be thinking about them because I’ve got a startup and a team that’s building a massive and intelligent software solution for technology companies, especially for those at scale.
I’m working on a very small To-Do iOS app and I’m sharing my process and my thoughts candidly through the process in a new YouTube playlist affectionately titled “Let’s Build an App“.
As you already know, I’m heavily involved with my startup and that’s where 99% of my time goes, but, in the 1% I’m sloooooooooowly putting this thing together.
Just a few years ago I didn’t even know that this type of role and/or position existed and, if I’m to be honest, I laughed at the concept and thought it was particularly stupid.
I was wrong. It’s not stupid and it can actually be a decent place to be for a time as you find and discover your next gig.
I’ve been in “product management” for a long time, as long as I can remember and certainly since I first starting building my own small apps and digital products in the early 2000’s.
But that terminology wasn’t codified in my own head at the time and the culture around product management has rapidly changed, progressed and matured, especially in the last few years.
