Over the course of launching this blog, a lot of issues came to the surface for us. Such as:

  1. What is publicly “shareable” for design and product people?
  2. How can the quality of writing improve to a level we can be proud of?
  3. Is there a central gateway or authority for publishing on this blog?

A few of my favorite discoveries in this process include the following:

  • This tool for inspecting writing quality is quite lovely: After The Deadline
  • Peer-to-peer, offers-to-edit among teammates emerge from grassroots.
  • In an international company, the freedom to blog in non-English is 👍!

Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy what you see here!
