The logical end outcome of the remote work-compensation debate is: compensation based on a global marketplace and location no longer playing a part in what you get paid.

If someone can do your job as well elsewhere in the world with a lower CoL, remote work will find them.
This is going to be fantastic for people in Eastern Europe/India/etc who have dense talent pools in tech but often constrained by location and access.
We might be in for a rocky time as marketplace/price discovery happens for every combination of location*role.

A KPI I would love to set for every CTO/CPO at a media org: reduce login-walls for existing subscribers. Every successful password entry should be a negative signal.

If I’m a subscriber, ideally shouldn’t hit a login wall on the same device ever.
Lots of little things that can easily fix a lot of my frustrations
1. auto-login from email newsletter.
2. Email me login link which auto redirects to logged-in article.
3. If coming from a known IP, assume I’m a subscriber first. Don’t make me search for a tiny “sign in” link.
4. Loosen the limits of max # of sessions per account. Account for phone/tablet/desktop/multiple browser cookie sandboxes

5. Easy ways to tie together account number/email/physical address if you have print version (looking at you FT).

Thanks to popular demand yesterday, I put up a page that will collect some good content on business strategy especially as it applies to tech.
It's work in progress so a) be patient b) send me stuff c) I'm trying to be specific to technology so avoiding most of business strategy lore d)picking things that have personally resonated with me.
featuring work from @benthompson , @sarahtavel , @kevinakwok , @stevesi , @bbalfour , @trengriffin and much much more.

Two schools of thought in tech strategy I think are fundamentally new, as impactful as ‘crossing the chasm’ or ‘Porter’s six forces’ and will probably be taught in B-schools in future.

1. @benthompson on “aggregation theory”

2. @kevinakwok on “loops”
3. @eugenewei on “status as a service”.
4. @sarahtavel's "Hierarchy of Engagement"

🚨👋 Thrilled to announce a passion project I've been working on for a while. Here's "The Observer Effect" with our very first interview w/ the one and only Marc Andreessen.
With these series of interviews, I wanted to document/chronicle how interesting people worked. In this conversation, @pmarca covers a broad range of topics. Some highlights below.

For starters, he has totally changed his routine from the old "Pmarca guide to productivity"
How he approaches his personal goals and systems.

Breaking into PMing - a 🧵 // A question folks from eng/design/other functions often have how to become a PM in a tech co.

It can seem non-obvious and differs with each company but here are some patterns I've seen work. All the below assumes you have no PMing on your resume.
1a/ First, here's a secret: everyone desperately wants to hire a good PM but good PMs are hard to hire and a bad hire can be disastrous for a team. This sets up various incentives.
1b/ It's *much* easier to do a lateral move to a PM in a company you're working in as opposed to joining a new one. highly recommend this over trying to find a new company to take a bet on you.
The below assumes you're going to try and find a role in your current co.

As someone who works "in tech", really proud of how the tech industry has responded so far

1/ Most important: stuff has just kept working. This is non-trivial given the excess loads. From video to collab to email to this very platform. Lots of folk working around the clock.
2/ every large tech co. doing their own version of efforts to help with CoVID-19 from removing limits, surfacing better information, etc (and I'm sure more to come).
3/ the social platforms been by far the best place to keep up to date on what's happening. Any large CoVID-19 story (lack of testing, what's happening in SK, etc) broke out on Twitter first for example.
