One recent Saturday morning I got sucked into watching neat things on TED. If you haven’t seen it, go look now!
I found one that was very relevant to product management called When it comes to tech, Simplicity Sells. Oh, and it’s realy fun to watch or listen to! It’s about how simple technology really should be – with lots of the common examples we’ve all seen from Microsoft vs Apple. That said, in its basic form, it is a good reminder to product managers since we are creating software with lots of features – stop cramming features in and build something that works.
There are some neat products highlighted in here, like the voice recognition software that seems to work pretty well. That’s got great potential for those of us in a field that spend a lot of time typing!
P.S. If you like math, this one is fun: http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/view/id/199
