Max Gadney on ten things learned after three years in business. Includes “No Hobbies” and “No Babyfoot”. Focus.
@adrianhon Yeah, my calendar is suddenly full of several years of things I’d forgotten!
@adrianhon I still like it. Putting its iCal feed in my calendar recently made a difference. Helps me remember what I’ve been doing!
Swarm’s taking the piss now. It’s stopped telling me how many check-ins at offices “Tom” has, and is now telling me about “Matt”.
@monkchips I didn’t say that. Take action! Everyone likes different kinds of action. I, me, personally, don’t want to run a conference.
@monkchips I’m not saying there *shouldn’t* be a conference like that. I’m just wary of people talking, feeling better, but not *doing*.
@monkchips Yes, as a thought experiment to imagine what a different kind of (part of) tech industry might look like.
@andylolz Oh definitely. I think that’s a fault of tech(?) culture - people like to start new sites/charities/etc rather than help existing.
@andylolz Thanks. I helped build the original They Work For You. Although that put me off doing more similar things :)
@andylolz Thanks. I’m currently working for Citizens Advice.
@hyper_linda I have never even tried, so have respect for anyone who’s tried.
@blaine I’m sure! I think they’re just not in the tech world that makes the most noise within my hearing. (Which isn’t their fault.)
A StackExchange site where you ask which StackExchange site you should post your question on.
@george08 Seems a bit pointless to start an organisation with no idea what it would actually *do* :)
More useful than putting on a conference along those lines: actually running an organisation along those lines.
@Thayer Thanks…. I barely like going to conferences, never mind putting them on :)
@chrislunch Any time!
