Fear and Loathing in Las Formas

While we haven’t posted a set of values or beliefs or whatever the catchy trend is today, we still have them. Maybe we should? I don’t know. Feels a little disingenuous.

Unpopular take. Most companies say they have values. Hand out cards with them printed on it. Put up posters. Ask the people? Almost all will tell you they don’t resonate or even reach the level that matters. Those people who actually talk to your customers.

The Party Postel

One of the things we’re most grateful for is our (mine and Mease’s) time at GMAC Mortgage. We both started at 20. For the record Jared is older than me, by almost a year!

SouthSide Cares – Fundraiser

When our team first met with this group to see how we could help we were awestruck by how many people were there. We pitched to a packed room at the #109 FOE Hall in Des Moines. The more we learned the more we saw how big of a difference they make in people’s lives.

Your authority should be inconsequential, but people should always want to follow you.

Google Site Kit – We’re Not Worthy

So Google right? Analytics, Tag Manager, Console, Optimize, Page Insights. Mainstay products for websites and free. They love us (or want our data) so much that they made it even easier to use these products.

What’s UP with ClickUp?

Do you develop software? Project Manage? Set Goals? Roadmap? Need to organize about anything? Did I cover enough keywords there? I’m about to tell you about the dopest solution I’ve found for these and more.

Cash or Credit

One of my most important mentors taught me this lesson and it applies wider than I think he thought.

State of Play

State of Play So we have Stadia and we have Apple Arcade. Both seem to undercut the traditional revenue relationship between developer and parent. Subscription service for unlimited access. Breaking from the freemium tradition. Based on the headlines it seems developers are somewhat in the dark on how they’re going to get paid long term or at […]
