    Thanks for sharing the link, and especially for the feedback on your favorite slide. It’s been fascinating to me to see which part resonates with different people (it isn’t the places I’d have expected). Cheers!

      I’ve been trying to fit my head around what it means to be “lean” and I think that this slide pretty much synthesized what I view it as. The idea isn’t to just throw junk out there, but to start as small as possible so that you can get feedback back and make decisions.

      I found the entire presentation to be great. Is there going to be a video of it?
