Notebook

I try to follow the motto, "if you think every day, write every day."

I take a lot of notes and have frequent insights that aren't ready to be turned into a full article. Some of them may never be.

Sharing these insights from my personal notebook is a great way to take the pressure off and develop ideas in public.

If I develop a note or set of notes into something more polished and thorough, it will end up in the articles section.

My Lastest Notes:
Startup Growth vs Enterprise Growth

Product and Growth Growth teams and product go hand in hand. Good growth teams can do 3 things: Optimize a metric. Help get products to product-market fit. Help validate learning. Can help launch new products, scale M&A, and of course scale existing products. Scale existing products (they do this best) Pick a Northstar metric and […]

Web2 vs Web3

Many people misunderstand the difference between web2 and web3. I believe a big contributor to this is that the term “web3” implies a linear upgrade that replaces “web2” but this is not an accurate portrayal.

Web 3.0 is Coming

I've been thinking a lot about what makes something "disruptive." Sorry, I know, that word has been played to death. I wish I could think of another word that doesn't make me sound like a soulless tech bro douchebag but it's descriptive and the copywriter in me mandates "clarity above all else." The thing about […]

The Ultimate Roam Dark Theme

I really, really love Roam for many reasons. One of the cool things about Roam is that creating a custom dark theme is easy because they support altering the CSS directly within the app. Well, I looked for a great dark theme and ultimately found that what was out there was either incomplete or poorly […]

How to Create a Free Google Cloud Platform Account

Google's Cloud Platform is awesome. It's amazing how much they offer for free. For amateur techies like me who love to automate things it's kind of amazing.
