Learn to love feedback.
Every piece of feedback tells you
something, even if it’s just about
how you are perceived by the giver.
Rejecting feedback is rejecting your own self

Nassim Nicholas Taleb, Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder
Some things benefit from shocks; they
thrive and grow when exposed to
volatility, randomness, disorder, and
stressors and love adventure , risk,
Yet, in spite of the ubiquity of the
phenomenon, there is no word for the
exact opposite of fragile. Let us call
it antifragile. Antifragility is
beyond resilience or robustness.
The resilient resists shocks and stays the same; the
antifragile gets better.
This property is behind everything
that has changed with time: evolution,
culture, ideas, revolutions, political
systems, technological innovation,
cultural and economic success,
corporate survival, good recipes (say,
chicken soup or steak tartare with a
drop of cognac), the rise of cities,
cultures, legal systems, equatorial
forests, bacterial resistance … even
our own existence as a species on this
And antifragility determines the

Data & Design
Digital is data driven.
Find noise in the signal.
Purpose driven nature of data.
It always starts with a problem.
You are trying to derive something.
Data can help you answer a
Get right data. It’s not the data, but how you
use it. Weave the data into your product story.
Data cannot tell you everything.
Data is interested in causality (causal
relationships, IFTTT). Because that is how
you derive power.
Derive knowledge is what data is for.
Data is no good if you don’t
understand what it can and cannot
You can derive knowledge from data
in a multitude of ways.
The data needs to add up to something that is
valuable for you to know.

The Snapchat app uses a principle Elman refers to in a
new blog post as "shareable design": the idea that an
interface is best understood when explained by someone
That type of design often is best applied to social-media
platforms, and even more so ones used largely by teens.
It's pretty likely that, in the course of using a new app, a
16-year-old is going to show it off to his or her friend.
That interaction adds value for both the newbie, who
gains knowledge about the app, and the explainer, who
feels the joy of teaching someone something they didn't
