I just read your series of posts. Do you think you can go "No Manager" with 250 people vs. 70? Is there a limit on the size of the organization?

Do you have a child or friend in high school? High Schools in Oregon are now using Treehouse (http://teamtreehouse.com/) for "Apps Class".

This new elective class will teach high schoolers how to make iPhone or iPad apps, Android apps, websites or web applications. Once they finish the class they will have the skills to get a job in the Tech industry that pays $30,000+ annually.

Check out this TV news report! :) http://www.keprtv.com/news/local/New-App-Creating-Class-in-Umatilla-means-more-jobs-for-students-215161641.html

If you'd like to get an App Class started at your local school, please email me on ryan@teamtreehouse.com. It only costs $9 per student per month.

Switching to the Nexus 4 is something I've been considering lately.  The thing that's keeping me from it is that I'm so tied into the Apple family of devices and services.  Still, though, your post is making me think :)
