I had dinner with Brett Terpstra in San Francisco recently and it was so much fun that he asked me to be a guest on his Systematic podcast. Half of the show covered the upcoming return of Meet The Makers and the other half covered my quest to find a startup religion that worked for me.
On each show the host and guest pick three things they want people to go check out. I believe they’re supposed to be things that make your work life suck less. I chose calm.com, iOS keyboard shortcuts and Sonos. Brett chose Belkin’s Bluetooth Wireless Keypad, the Mac note taking and brainstorming app Curio and the Exif Wizard app for iOS.
He diligently posts links for all the significant topics and products that were discussed:
- Meet The Makers is coming back
- “If you build something for everyone, it works for no one.“
- Because you can’t, you won’t and you don’t stop.
(Reid Hoffman telling me “In technology you are never the last anything.”)
- Tim’s Vermeer
- Sound City
- Vermeer’s paintings might be 350 year-old color photographs – Boing Boing
- Roger Dean’s paintings and album covers
- What is Bryce
- The Engadget Interview: John MacFarlane, CEO of Sonos, Inc.
(Engadget covering Sonos 9 years ago when I couldn’t afford them.)
- Ceros: A digital canvas for creating beautiful interactive content experiences without developers.
- Max Martin – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
