Bloc Party

Saw Bloc Party last night at the Fillmore with Arsie—like their first performance there, they played three encores. They really know how to play to a crowd—I’m stoked for Cut/Copy and Yelle coming up!

Feature Creep at the Gate

July 28, 2008

Re-blogging Eric’s post from our internal blog:

Here are my notes from reading 37signals book, Getting Real—it's an outstanding read. Money quote:

"Each time you say yes to a feature, you’re adopting a child. You have to take your baby through a whole chain of events (e.g. design, implementation, testing, etc.). And once that feature’s out there, you’re stuck with it. It’s like ‘Fight Club.’ You should only consider features if they’re willing to stand on the porch for three days waiting to be let in."

This should be tattooed on the back of the eyelids of any PM or founder.

Do Want

Completely floored—this car is beautiful. The Mazda Furai concept runs E100 through a Mazda rotary engine. It runs. This is the most lust-worthy concept car I’ve seen in years. I feel like I’m 10 again.

Parallels and the Overhelpful

July 23, 2008

Dear Parallels,

As much as I appreciate your marvelous integration with Windows, when I type “Address Book” into Spotlight and hit Return, I’d prefer to get the OS X Address Book—not launch Windows and get the Microsoft equivalent.

Love, Randy
