Here's another post that covers two themes I've been writing about lately:
i) organization size and the power of small over big
ii) quality products
37 signals does an excellent job. They've released a bunch of different items. They're making good money. They've evolved into a kind of rock star in my world. That said from some one who still listens to Journey and Boston as if they were present day musical stars.
We at Judy's Book have #1 above nailed down. We're small and staying small. The thing we're working on -- at times struggling with -- is making the right product design decisions in line with our constraints. The person making most of these decisions for Judy's Book is my colleague and friend -- the esteemed Rahul. He's writing about his use of the 37 signals spoon on a new blog that is worth checking out.
