Anyone know how to generate HTML from Google Slides suitable for use in an HTML email?

We've found Google Slides to be great for page layout and newsletters (HT +Joshua Pomeroy). But we'd like to be able to send our newsletters as HTML emails. The "HTML view" option in Slides includes JavaScript and CSS that don't seem to work well with email.

How is your team prioritizing its web roadmap and backlog items? Have you used a spreadsheet to prioritize them? How'd that go?

Spreadsheets are a lousy way of prioritizing product features. Here's why.

Excellent video series from designer +Joshua Pomeroy shows how easy it is to use Google Drive for nearly all your graphic design and page layout needs​.

Have you used Docs, Slides, or Drawings for graphic design? If so, how?

I receive group texts to my Google Voice number just fine in the Android Hangouts app, and I can reply to the sender. But do those replies go to the entire group, or just back to the sender?

+Joe Rosenthal​​ if this is your only issue, wait till you try to send "short code" message and Hangouts puts a "+1" before the number and the messages fail. Still waiting for that to be fixed and it has been being reported over the last year or more. I discovered if I turn off "Show (Google Voice) SMS & voicemail in Hangouts" that this issue doesn't happen. As soon as I tick that back on, the problem comes back.

This app has reduced my blood pressure.

I run a "server" on an old HTC myTouch 3G that sends text messages using Servers Ultimate Pro. Unfortunately, the wifi connection would drop unpredictably, and the text messages would no longer send.

After installing Wifi Fixer,  the problem with wifi drops went away (or at least the app fixes the wifi drops so quickly that they aren't noticeable).

A real lifesaver. Thanks.

How should teams that are #runninglean  prioritize their roadmaps and experiments? Have you used a spreadsheet? How'd that work for you?

In Running Lean, +Ash Maurya tells us that our product's activation flow should demonstrate the unique value proposition. I argue in this article that we should do most of our prioritization through the lens of the UVP and what we can learn.

Now that you've had a largely buzzword-free introduction to lean startup methods, you may be interested in a bit deeper understanding of the concepts and terminology.  Lean startup methods incorporate scientific methods and p...
