Patrick Campbell wrote a nice text on how to properly increase software prices. He boils it all down to linking the prices to the value of the product, but that’s only the price model. Four ways of increases the product’s prices are then elaborated on:
- Grandfather Discounts
- Clockwork Price Increases
- Communicated Increases

I ran across this checklist of requirements that it takes to create a strong product team. It’s more than the usual five-item list, and it’s worth a read. I personally do not agree with every item, especially not with the timeframes, but in general the checklist is pretty inspiring. It contains four fields:
- Team Staffing
- Team Context
- Dual-Track – Discovery
- Dual-Track – Delivery
When I read this post, stating that Tumblr calculates the URL character length of shortened URLs correctly, I thought: No, it’s all done wrong!
Even though the feature mentioned is a good idea, the character counter still counts up! What is the user supposed to do with that information? A better counter would decrease the number of available characters instead of simply increasing the number of used characters.
