Demand Generation: Learning About What It Is, and What It’s Not!

After reading 40 articles about demand generation, I’m here to say that you would be surprised at what these articles have in common.

There was surprisingly little distinction between demand generation and lead generation.

At times, it felt like what was needed was a true back to basics positioning, where we are educated in not only the definition of demand generation, but what the point of demand generation even IS.

ConclusionIn a very roundabout way, I ended up believing that the secret of demand generation is actually… listening.

There’s a lot of variation possible with iso tiles, but it basically come down to picking out a cube style and texturing them to represent the desired environment.

While it’s possible to create a complex set of iso tiles that includes slopes, I’m going to stick to cuboids, which can still make surprisingly varied and interesting environments.

You can even have tiles with no sides, but these can only go flat on the ground with no elevation.

The tutorial depicts various styles of tiles from flat color, to more detailed texture (not a step by step progression).

I think the flat color, and simple texture versions could be combined for a nice look, but stylistically don’t match well with the hig…

TSMC Arizona will reportedly now make 4nm chips to support its big US clients (pic: Ascannio/Shutterstock)The new chip factory, or fab, will cost $12bn and is part of TSMC’s global expansion plan.

Surely you're publishing, Mr. Feynman
Surely you're publishing, Mr. Feynman Surely you're publishing, Mr. Feynman

In an ideal world, publishable would be synonymous to substantial, but sadly, that is not the case.

Once again, in an ideal world, we’d have incentivized reviewers who would heavily scrutinize each submitted draft before recommending it to be published.

In his famous book Surely you are joking, Mr. Feynman, Feynman writes about his time in Cornell as a young professor after being fresh out of the Manhattan project at Los Alamos.

As the plate went up in the air I saw it wobble, and I noticed the red medallion of Cornell on the plate going around.

An ideal Research should truly ever be ignited by curiosity.

Age that kids acquire mobile phones not linked to well-being: study Age that kids acquire mobile phones not linked to well-being: study

In the Stanford Medicine study, children were 7 to 11 years old when the study began and 11 to 15 by the conclusion of the research.

At each assessment, parents were asked whether their child owned a mobile phone and whether it was a smartphone.

It doesn’t mean you can’t take your kid’s phone away if you think it’s taking too much sleep time.

They also performed analyses to test whether children’s well-being differed depending on the age children received their first mobile phone.

When the analyses were conducted only on smartphones (vis-a-vis any mobile phone), the results were similar.

Tailwind is a leaky abstraction
Tailwind is a leaky abstraction Tailwind is a leaky abstraction

Tailwind is a Leaky AbstractionI have to admit: as I've watched Tailwind enthusiastically adopted by more and more of the frontend community, I've remained skeptical.

You can accomplish the exact same thing without Tailwind by using two properties:display : flex; column-gap : 0.5rem ;Originally, I was going to write about how Tailwind doesn't support attribute selectors.

I'm referring in particular to the “arbitrary variants” feature that allows you to include CSS selectors in your Tailwind classes.

But even after working with it for months, there's still a mental translation layer between “Tailwind CSS” and “real CSS”.

Ruby 3.1 adds a new core class called Data to represent simple immutable value objects.

While the Data class is not meant to be used directly, it can be used as a base class for creating custom value objects.

C code is written in .c source files.

Each source file is compiled to a .o object file, which is like a container for the compiled function code in the .c file.

We put these “declarations” in their own .h file, so other .c files can #include them.

To avoid duplication, a .c file will typically not define its own types/macros etc.

Macros vs inline functionsMacros can have parameters, which can then expand to C code.

Using Rust at a startup: a cautionary tale
Using Rust at a startup: a cautionary tale Using Rust at a startup: a cautionary tale

My primary experience from Rust comes from working with it for a little more than 2 years at a previous startup.

Basically, the problems that Rust is designed to avoid can be solved in other ways — by good testing, good linting, good code review, and good monitoring.

Another secondary factor is that using Rust will almost certainly lead to a schism between the people on the team who know Rust and those who don’t.

✍︎What is Rust good at?

There are definitely things I like about Rust, and features from Rust that I’d love to have in other languages.

For faster development instead of running npm run build you can run npm run build-watch in another terminal session, this will recompile as you change files.

If it's not listed in Supported devices, support can be added (fairly) easily, see How to support new devices.

The course helps anyone who knows Python and a bit of math go from the basics to today's mainstream models and frameworks.

In part one, we cover text preprocessing, how to turn text into numbers, and multiple ways to classify and search text using "classical" approaches.

Show HN: How to start integrating your site with Web3 Smart Contracts Show HN: How to start integrating your site with Web3 Smart Contracts

Users pluginThe Users plugin treats Web3 as an external platform, just as it does with Facebook or Telegram.

The answer is to build an ecosystem of smart contracts that are produced by factories, which are themselves smart contracts that simply clone a code template, and set some parameters.

In 2017, we spun off a company called Intercoin, which has been building smart contracts that can serve entire communities.

They can be loaded on demand, from either the client or server side, and used by Users methods making requests to Web3 providers.

When a page loads the next time, the Users plugin checks in localStorage for any transaction hashes you were waiting for before.

I like the tab-switching behaviour in Chrome/Firefox and wanted Safari to have something similar. Another wish of mine was for it to be a web extension that feels native to the browser vs an app extension that looks out of place.After waiting long enough, I decided to build one myself. A little preview of Tap Tab - https://taptab.manibatra.xyz. The web extension APIs for managing tabs are pretty locked down in Safari, but I have already found a lot of value in using the extension. Some of the features that I find very useful(in the middle of building a few of these) :- Driven by keyboard shortcuts.

Intercom’s Product Principles: building solutions that fit the bill Intercom’s Product Principles: building solutions that fit the bill

As we’ve scaled, we’ve distilled and fine-tuned the foundations that shape what we build and how we build it.

Principles tell us where we should focus, how we make decisions and move forward as a team, and help us consistently build great products at scale.

For starters, our Product Designer, Eugenia Ortiz, explains why designers should take ownership of what they ship, even after launch.

We believe that is a flawed approach, too heavily skewed towards building solutions based on weak problem comprehension”Looking for a little more?

Solving the Innovator’s Dilemma: How successful companies are embracing innovation units Solving the Innovator’s Dilemma: How successful companies are embracing innovation units

For innovation hubs to be successful, the leadership must clearly articulate the vision and create space within that vision for innovation to happen.

Innovation, or more specifically, innovation units.

I’ve been chatting to our customers Gartner, Atlassian, and Vermeer about the benefits of innovation units and adopting next-gen technology like Intercom.

When you’re talking about how these innovation units are breaking down traditional rules and regulations, how do you think that autonomy fuels innovation?

Many products in our portfolio have been written in different tech stacks, so it hasn’t been too much of a problem for us.

This leads marketers to under-invest in campaigns with higher (but uncertain) payoffs in the long term, and over-invest in short term small wins.

They’re designed to generate small wins that will move you up to “local optimum” within the framework of what they’re already doing, and nothing more (a small improvement but not a step-change winner).

Therefore, having constant access to customer feedback data is a critical piece of the puzzle.

Some startups, seeing that issue, created tools that generate a so-called feedback river – a stream of customer feedback connected to multiple sources.

To help you start, we’ve created a customer feedback analysis template that will allow you to start creating topics right away.

People are often tempted to over-engineer problems with machine learning.

Machine learning starts with offline experimentation.

Says Graham: “Machine learning can create outcomes that you’re not ready for, that you haven’t planned for.

Claire says sometimes machine learning technology can be so hard to develop, that researchers will introduce a user experience to make the algorithm easier.

SUNDAY REWIND: Mastering the problem space for product/market fit by Dan Olsen SUNDAY REWIND: Mastering the problem space for product/market fit by Dan Olsen

This week’s Sunday rewind is Dan Olsen’s talk from mtpcon San Francisco on mastering the problem space for product/market fit.

In it, Dan, author of The Lean Product Playbook, tackles the key components of product/market fit and how to achieve it.

Many new products and companies fail because they don’t achieve product/market fit and Dan argues that this is because too many teams focus too much on the top two parts of the pyramid – the solution space of features and UX – while ignoring the foundations of the problem space.

A product manager’s job is to focus on the problem space, says Dan.

My company recently had a big layoff - about 40% of engineers are gone.

Besides just enjoying my job, I’ve just moved house and I have a baby on the way, so I’m highly motivated to have some stability (and get paid parental leave.)

My gut says give it the 9 months to see how it all plays out - but my brain thinks my gut is an idiot.

Interviewing while taking care of a newborn for the first time feels like an incredibly difficult thing to do and the job market may not be getting better.

Do you have any advice for how to navigate this situation?

Listener ninjamonkey says,I am a new grad who is half a year into the role now at a very large company.

Recently, a senior engineer on my team asked me to create a ticket for an infra team for a problem with a service.

From these interactions and comments on the ticket, it feels the infra team will likely not work on the tickets I report or de-prioritize them.

While each acquisition took a different approach to podcasts, Spotify had to find a way to measure all podcasts (and thus each acquisition) equally.

A remote work dilemma is emerging.

In fact, a Gartner survey of 5,000 workers found that remote and hybrid employees reported higher culture satisfaction than on-site employees.

In the face of this, companies that don’t adapt will bleed talent to their competition, and companies that embrace remote work will replace companies that don’t.

As an audio-visual artist, she is the true owner of the "flow" and the chanting. Her songs go beyond the trap and urban genres – they are revealing lyrics that tell the beauty and also the horror of growing…

Brandon Kyle Goodman discusses his/their book "You Gotta Be You: How to Embrace This Messy Life and Step Into Who You Really Are." From the time we’re born, a litany of do’s and don’ts are placed on us by our families, our communities, and society. We're required to fit into boxes based on our race, gender, sexuality, and other parts of our identities, being told by others how we should behave, who we should date, or what we should be interested in. For so many of us, those boxes begin to feel like shackles when we realize they don’t fit our unique shape, yet we keep trying because we crave acceptance and validation. But is “fitting in” worth the time, energy, and suffering? Get the book he…

Your heart is a miracle in motion, a marvel of construction unsurpassed by any human-made creation.

So in this article, I’d like to focus on this more fundamental topic, which gets to the very nature of product, and the foundation of what it means to be a strong product team.

The product manager must establish relationships with these people, where the product manager has put in real time and effort to learn the concerns and needs of the various stakeholders, and the stakeholder genuinely believes that the product manager understands the relevant constraints, and will ensure they are considered and addressed in any proposed solution.

And for anything in that gray area where the product manager isn’t sure if something is viable or not, the product manager will discuss with the stakeholder …

Product Sense Demystified
Product Sense Demystified Product Sense Demystified

As in, some people have a strong sense of smell, and others have strong product sense.

If you’re a product manager, this is often one of the most meaningful differences between an entry level product manager, and the more senior levels (e.g.

senior product manager, group product manager, principal product manager).

This happens when the person doesn’t realize the true source of product sense, and instead they think they have some sort of mental gift, but this is just arrogance, not product sense.

Product sense can definitely accelerate product discovery, but it’s more like having a compass as you navigate the product risks.

This type of insight-driven product strategy usually requires developing new muscles for the company, but the reward for strong product strategy is to get the most out of your technology investment.

In the feature team model, the feature on the roadmap is designed by the designer on the feature team, and then built by the engineers on the feature team.

This is why in the feature team model you can’t hold the feature team accountable to business results.

SOLVING PROBLEMS FOR OUR CUSTOMERS AND OUR BUSINESSLet’s contrast this with an empowered product team.

In this case, rather than providing the product team with a roadmap of features and projects to build, the product team is instead given a set of problems to solve and desired outcomes to achieve.

Instead, the product team has a full battery of tools and techniques in order to quickly test out ideas and approaches.

One consequence of my efforts to shine a light on this problem is that I’m often asked something along the lines of “what about the SVPG process?” (or “the INSPIRED process” or “the EMPOWERED process”, or yikes, “the Marty Cagan process”)?

In fact, in the book INSPIRED, I structure the book around four major concepts: people, product, process and culture.

They are simply the practices and techniques we observe being used in the best product teams and product companies.

But it’s often because not enough attention was paid to market fit.

Beyond a product’s usability, feasibility, and viability, product discovery work around value is intended to find this answer.

Determining market fit is about taking inputs from discovery work and applying them to what people are likely to truly do in real-life conditions.

Discovery work led by product managers should always cover product baselines:Are your customers who you think they are?

I encourage people to be creative and get out of the building to really understand market fit.

Some have a sizable war chest because they raised funds when it was easy, and were conservative about their spending.

My personal theory is that this belief contributes to many failed product companies.

In any case, when the money dries up, the product deficiencies become plain to see.

This means focusing on the core competencies of figuring out what precisely you need to build (product discovery), and getting that product to market (product delivery).

Once you have established product/market fit, then by all means invest in marketing, sales, and customer success.

To be very clear, I’m not suggesting that this dimension of excellence is critical for every product team and every product company.

Similarly, when a product leader reviews the work of a product team, beyond ensuring that the team understands and delivers on their key results, that leader sometimes also weighs in on this topic of product excellence.

Certainly there is sensitivity to how this opinion is shared with the product team.

My favorite place to capture this dimension of product excellence is in the product principles, which typically are developed alongside a strong and compelling product vision.

Oh sure, Musk and his coterie of advisors have narratives: bots are bad and blue checks are about status.

Narratives are tempting but too often they are wrong, a diversion, or based on theory without any tether to reality.

I suspect the distinction is that both companies are rooted in the physical world: physics has a wonderful grounding effect on the most fantastical of narratives.

There are now more than 140 billion Reels plays across Facebook and Instagram each day.

Meta is still the best option for that sort of top-of-the-funnel advertising, which is why the company still took in $27 billion in advertising last quarter.

Meta has huge data centers, but those data centers are primarily about CPU compute, which is what is needed to power Meta’s services.

That won’t be a concern for China when it comes to chips for military applications.

That was the year Apple was, for the first time, coming out with a non-top-of-the-line iPhone, what ultimately became known as the iPhone 5C.

To be sure, Apple’s services revenue numbers are impressive (although it should be noted that services revenue on a per-active-user basis actually decreased year-over-year).

It does, though, make all kinds of sense for a services company, which is focused first-and-foremost on increasing its install base.

To measure its business based on users, not products, was to measure like a services company; to lower the prices of the products that lead to services revenue is to price like one.
