Shoot This One

  • Why read?

    Proof that product isn’t unique: this essay by a veteran TV showrunner (Lost, The Middleman, etc) is my bible on how to work with people, communicate across departments, iterate and more. The only difference between what Javi does and our jobs: once an episode airs, he doesn’t have to support it as legacy tech. Bonus feature: as a TV writer, his essay is far more entertaining than most business books — and as a 25 page free PDF, it’s a no-brainer.  PDF available at:
