Refactored #065: “Incremental Trade-Offs”

On this episode of Refactored…

  • The Increment Collector’s Edition has been cancelled due to production challenges. But the reply-all thread is the real story. Here are a few pulled quotes:
    • This is now the “I’m sad about my increment collector’s edition order” thread.
    • Woo! Hoo! My first user therapy group!
    • This is an awesome self-selected group of people who care about product engineering!
    • This whole email chain is some combination of ridiculous and amazing.
  • Frank makes a prediction that “something like Slack will always exist.”
  • Chris trips over both his old man walking cane AND his tin foil hat to bash modern chat.
  • Hey! Phrasing! TAM: Total Addressable Market
  • Feedback: Anonymous asks, “What do you recommend when you are told that you have to release a product that you know is not yet stable or ready for release?”
  • … and much more!
