Are there ways of being paranoid without being an asshole? Or, All your hot takes are belong to us – Software Defined Talk #45

Summary


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.

With Brandon Whichard, Matt Ray, and Coté.
