Scrimmage Notes #1

Welcome to the inaugural Scrimmage Notes. I hope that you find this useful!

I want to use this to showcase interesting links about Product Development in Community. These aren’t always going to be recent links, but they should be good ones!

Worthwhile Links

F Yeah Side Projects Stories like this are why I encourage folks to have side projects. They don’t need to be amazing. They don’t need to be comprehensive. They need to be shipped.

A Manifesto for Small Teams Doing Important Work Seth Godin produces a lot of really excellent stuff. This is a short list of rules for doing important work that resonated with me as I got around to launching the Scrimmage Product Lab.
