Are There Ways of Being Paranoid Without Being an Asshole? — Software Defined Talk #45

5 Oct 2015 8:08pm, by

After discussing the Horns of Moses and beard butter, we talk about how big companies seem to always “miss it.” We use a recent write-up of Nokia as the launching point, and sort of conclude that the problem is: people get fat and happy and don’t stay “paranoid” enough. We also discuss ad blocking and how little most tech vendor marketers probably care about the topic. Brandon gives a good rant on how to do marketing right: have a great product.
