Our thoughts on running a company, tech insight, news, and nerd life.


Hello –
We redecorated and rearranged, but without the dust, spackle or paint. Or new furniture.
A little news first: Stephanie, my newsletter writing and editing partner, left Radial in March. She was one of Radial’s earliest employees. She was a valued member of our team, supporting, coaching and mentoring others.
Stephanie and I are both former journalists. She did broadcast. I did print. She left to become a developer. I left to work in public relations and marketing. We have different approaches, and our backgrounds complemented one another. Also, she’s a developer and she taught me easier ways to navigate tech. I’ll miss our weekly collaborations.
The newsletter is a work in progress. The sales and management teams and I will try out some new things and hang onto some others.
Read on. And please drop me a line, newsletter@RadialDevGroup.com, to tell me your ideas and what you’d like to see more or less of.
Be well,
Lori

• A teenage gorilla in Chicago is getting too much screen time and he ignores his roommates. Sound familiar?
• Miss the sound of typewriter keys? Tetris? old ringtones? Visit the sound museum. It even has the annoying screech of a dial-up connection you can listen to again and again to remind you of AOL and the 1990s.

Sparking genius
From our friendly neighborhood nerd Ariana F., at Rosabella Consulting:
Sometimes we get so busy trying to help that we forget to ask how to help. Baking a casserole might feel like the thing to do. Asking first opens a conversation about what a person actually needs when life is an uphill slog.
