Hi Alanna — can you DM me on Twitter and I’ll see what I can do? It’s been years since I worked on Blogger, but I can try and figure out who would be the right person to chat with.
Hi Michael — we’ve had an eero system working with our Circle for the last ~6 months without a problem. We have 60+ devices on the network, about 20 of which are managed by Circle. Haven’t noticed any network performance issues with the Circle in place.
Paul Wanless: Probably best to point you to the two prior pieces I’ve written on OKRs:
And if you’re a real glutton, the original YouTube video is here:
Chris Reardon: good point! I spoke about that in the talk I gave, but it seemed less critical to the written version of the story. I noted that not only was the 1890 Census the country’s first ‘big data’ experience, it was also a missed opportunity to get a disaster recovery plan in place.
Josh Hyde: I think that’s where this is headed (see eero’s new features, which start to get into this space), but I’m OK w/a purpose-built device that’s designed to solve a specific problem. In the past, other routers who’ve tried to do this have been consistently awful.
Alex Castro: the score is a reflection of the impact achieved; in an annual employee performance review, I expect other factors to be relevant. (Did the employee grow over the year in their contributions? Did they take on other work? Did they follow through on the career development work they committed to during the last review? Are they a jerk…
Andy Raskin: I love your post on Elon’s battery pitch, mostly because Elon’s delivery is so clearly not what we expect of world-class presenters. And you’re right: by framing it as a mission w/nothing less than the future of the planet at stake, he’s got people in the palm of his hand.
Not sure I really understand the question, Lucas. Ultimately the point of the pitch (at least in the context I’m approaching it — for an investor or potential customer) is to draw a distinction between the current state and the proposed solution. Ideally, the impact of the solution is obvious enough (and interesting enough) that there is interest in learning more.
