“More data increases our confidence, not our accuracy”
Last night futurist, journalist, prognosticator, and author Malcolm Gladwell told pretty much the most data-driven marketing technologist crowd imaginable that data is not their salvation.

Just found out this (old, yet) inspiring blog post from Joel Spolsky:

"Thus, the upside-down pyramid. Stop thinking of the management team at the top of the organization. Start thinking of the software developers, the designers, the product managers, and the front line sales people as the top of the organization.

The “management team” isn’t the “decision making” team. It’s a support function. You may want to call them administration instead of management, which will keep them from getting too big for their britches."

Brilliant!
Today's guest blogger needs no introduction. Joel Spolsky one of the best bloggers out there. He also runs one of our portfolio companies, Stack. And his approach to management is unorthodox at times but amazingly effective. I asked him to tell us a little about how he does it.

For starters, it’s not flat, and it’s not a matrix.

Take aways:
1. replace policy with principles
2. all managers start as individual contributors
3. the only way you can affect cultural change on an organization is through positive reinforcement and social pressure.

Good reminder of data management 101 : Always need to think on your data querying needs when choosing a database technology and building your data model.
Disclaimer: I do not build database engines. I build web applications. I run 4-6 different projects every year, so I build a lot of web applications. I see apps with different requirements and diff...
