Assets & Media
The Role of Product Management – this paper is written by Pragmatic Marketing. The topic is how a market-driven focus leads companies to build products people want to buy. It’s a great insight into the overall product definition process.
I’m Linux is a fun video we shot (around 2007) for a contest hosted by the Linux Foundation. The basic concept was a short video that promoted the use of Linux in a variety of different devices. A younger version of me makes an appearance at the 00:00:28 mark. It’s a nice example of how you can use video to market your products or message.
