Busse's Weekly Retrospective - Issue #3: Sunday! Sunday! Sunday! ☀️

Chris Busse

This week was a busy one with two consecutive days of marketing workshops for Terazo. We did a rebrand about two years ago, but now that we’re growing to a national footprint it’s time to iterate and level up — some design tweaks, but mostly around messaging. It’s a different world than it was two years ago, and it’s definitely interesting brainstorming brand personality and messaging for an emergent-post-pandemic world.
Really though, this is just my long way of saying that I meant to get this out on Friday, but here we are on Sunday. Hope you enjoy a few things here, and let me know what feedback you have! - Busse [chrisbusse@gmail.com]

Outputs
A few weeks ago I recorded a podcast with RVAtech/talks, and it’s out now. It’s mostly non-technical and I thankfully I sound better than I though I did after giving the interview. They have a good studio engineer!

No matter how embarrassing you think it is to say “I don’t know but I can follow up and get back to you” in a meeting, it looks a whole lot worse to fumble through an answer that shows everyone you have no idea what you’re talking about.
Business
I need to go back through this and give it a deeper read, because there’s many ways to define “integration” and I’m not sure this guide applies to all approaches:
Third-party integration — Product Manager’s guide on how to choose a vendor
I joined the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts the other week; the couple that owned Best Products (headquartered in my native Richmond, VA) were major supporters of the Museum. I have seen articles like this before discussing the architecture of their stores, and this one happened to catch my eye this past week:

Technology
Justin hit the front page of Hacker News and got something like 200k+ views on this post — and it’s a great read both for software engineers and people who work with software engineers:

I’m in the “most NFTs are scams” camp, but ones that offer real utility intrigue me…

If I were to join *only one* Discord to learn more about the NFT community, which one should I join?

NFT project leaders, please don't hype me your project unless you really think it has the best overall community. Which Discord did you learn from? #NFT #NFTCommunity
