Notes:

  • (prioritization) the answer changes every day
  • how we pick the feature to work on depends on resources
  • where are we trying to take the app balanced against what the customer is saying
  • realize they don't know our long term vision
  • they don't see the full picture
  • ideas are not the problem, knowing what to work on next is
  • sometimes features are Pandora's box of other features
  • especially with a small team you have to be conservative about what you build
  • change something small, you'll get 50 praise and 50 hate emails
  • take user feedback and put it in a place that doesn't hurt you
  • we try to interact like human beings,...more than likely they are human too
  • gathering feedback, it's all hard
  • you give advice based on your situation,...don't know the full story
  • advice is easy to get, not right a lot of the time...just got to go with your gut
  • get the psychology behind what are they trying to accomplish
  • ...only takes 15 minutes to read all the daily tickets
  • everyone has baggage, perspective, shortsightedness...your job is to look above that
  • listen to everybody a little bit, and then ignore everyone
  • that state of chaos is what I need
  • wish we had more resources, but then we would be building a lot more crap
  • what the internet doesn't do for us is make you think you are the smartest person in the world

Good Job:
