Here are Qwilr we all spend a bit of our day reading about tech, startups and the business world (among other things). We even have a special Slack channel devoted to reading and discussing interesting stuff.
We’ve already written one post sharing some of what we’ve been reading, and we thought it was time today to share another one. We present these posts because we found them interesting for one reason or another, not necessarily because we endorse what they have to say. Where pertinent we’ve added a bit of commentary from the team.
What we’ve been reading lately
- As we come toward the end of negotiations for new office space (exciting) we found this post from the Customer.io blog interesting in challenging our assumption that we actually need an office.
- OkCupid ran another batch of interesting experiments on its users. They were unapologetic about this: “But guess what, everybody: if you use the Internet, you’re the subject of hundreds of experiments at any given time, on every site. That’s how websites work.”
- We can’t wait for the Copenhagen Wheel to launch. It promises to really transform cycling in a hilly city like Sydney.
- At least someone thinks too many people call themselves storytellers (NSFW language).
- Amazon gives more detail on why it’s at war with Hachette. Mark, who knows the e-book space very well from his time at Google doesn’t quite agree…
- Some incredible stats about the size (in revenue terms) of Apple’s product lines. E.g. the iPhone alone generates as much revenue as Coca-Cola and McDonalds combined.
- How to create a Youtube Angular.js directive.
- Apparently launching big is a myth. Phew.
- [Paywall] Mark Carnegie and FIIG partner to launch loans for high growth companies. A really interesting development in the Australia startup financing space. Potentially a partial solution for the immature post-series A market in Australia.
