I - Haxlr8r on Hardware '15

Haxlr8r, "the World's first mentorship-driven seed funding hardware accelerator program, published 192-slide deck on the state of hardware.

Kind of Meeker Report for hardware & IoT. Too much in fact to comment individually, but slides 49, 114 and 127 caught my eye.

I - UsTwo on Car HMI

I didn't know that UsTwo (tpbMV - the people behind Monument Valley) have an Automotive team.

If you want to know what they are up to, have a look at their take on instrument dashboard. They might have tackled a fairly obvious point, but they have done excellent job of explaining it.

I - MacKay on Interviewing

I'm not sure exactly what Jory MacKay, does as editor at an upmarket freelancer marketplace Crew. Whatever it is, the output is excellent.

Here is a great primer on how to ask questions to get most out of any conversation. It comes from journalist angle, but it works a guide for many conversations - customer . . .

I - Heilmann vs. Flipboard on Canvas

Mobile-first Flipboard has made the move to the web this week and their engineering team revealed more details about their approach.

Christian Heilmann's response is the pick of the ripostes - making some great points while staying respectful of the Flipboard team.

Small Wins, Big Mistakes and Fine Margins

This week the team was invited to present to a prospective customer. To impress the prospect we came up with a "wow-factor" feature and then jumped on building it.

Turns out the feature did the trick, impressing the prospect. In the office, there were high-fives all around. It's a small, but clear-cut win. It would be churlish . . .
