Over the course of the night a few of the highlights were…

Featured Product: (formerly known as Vintage)
exploring the product, its challenges and successes, from activation to rebranding(thanks to Andy Kennedy)

Minimizing Cost
from switching to opportunity

The Product Group meet-ups are an opportunity for Product People (managers, strategists, marketers, etc.) to come together to meet, interact, and network in a roundtable setting. It’s awesome to meet fellow Product People in a laid-back, conversational gathering.

If you are a Product Person and are interested in having your product featured or participating as a featured guest expert at an upcoming meetup of The Product Group, contact me (or email at jhorn (a-t.) tpgblog DoT com).

I am looking forward to seeing everyone at our next meetup

Thursday, August 7th @ 7PM

Stay tuned for more announcements about August’s Featured Product, Gusterly.

The Product Guy’s Weekend Reading (June 27, 2008)

reading_w_TPG_thumb5_thumb2_thumb2_t Every week I read tens of thousands of blog posts. Here, for your weekend enjoyment, are some highlights from my recent reading, for you.

On Starting Up…
Brief look at how to bring some ‘Google magic’ to your start-up.

On Design & Product Experience…
The balance between User eXperience (UX) and everything else can be, at times, tricky. Take a look at one way to quantify and evaluate the cost-benefit of building a great UX.

On Modular Innovation…
Venture capitalists are investing in the building blocks of the Modular Innovation trend while keeping an eye on Modular Innovation’s (investment) risks/challenges, which are simultaneously also the trend’s benefits.

Have a great weekend!
