OpenAI's groundbreaking DALL-E 2 model is a game-changer for image generation and editing. Don't be surprised if you hear everyone talking about this technology in the coming months. This article provides an in-depth look at how the program works. It's a must-read.

Big Tech's Highest-Paid Workers

Big tech's highest-paid workers are having fascinating conversations on Blind, the tech industry's semi-anonymous professional social network. It's become an interesting platform for sharing total compensation, getting feedback on job offers, and complaining about company policies. Do you think these conversations help or hurt employees?

Managing Your Mental Health While Running a Startup

Building a startup is one of the most significant challenges a person can take on. It can still feel like a grind even when things are going well. Okta Co-founder Frederic Kerrest shares what he does to manage his mental health and personal priorities while continuing to grow his company. 

 Product 

Designing Big, Complex Products From Scratch

One of the most prominent challenges designers face when building a new product is managing its size and complexity. This is especially true for products with extensive user flows, dense data, and specialist features. If you work on product design, this read will help you think through how to set yourself up for success early on.

Why Snapchat's Product Is Booming

Several years ago, Snapchat seemed like it was on the decline. When Facebook copied its most beloved feature, the company's growth story felt like it was coming to an end. But after a few challenging years, the social media platform has been booming. Here are some interesting takeaways about how this happened

How To Build a Perfect Presentation Deck

Dave Gerhardt has created more than 50 presentations for founders, CEOs, and executives over the past five years. He shares the four-part outline he uses whenever he starts building out a new deck. This is a fantastic model to follow if you're building out a presentation in the near future. One of the best suggestions is: Start on paper first so you don't get lost in the slide design.

The Future of Web Marketing Copy

Algorithms impact more and more of our lives. It affects how we start and scale companies, including market to customers. A new text-generation technology called GPT-3, also created by OpenAI, is automatically creating marketing copy that wins clicks and ranks highly on Google. It's a game-changer that will change how marketers think about their work in the future.

Setting Up Engineering for Growth

Tara AI is growing fast. In this article, Co-founder and CEO Iba Masood provides insight into the workflows and culture that drove 1500% YoY growth. I was fascinated to read her thoughts on how "PR zero is the new inbox zero" and how the company weaves product goals into weekly sprints. Read more here.

The Hyper-Growth Customer Support Problem

It's no surprise that hyper-growth companies are usually not great at customer or partner support, no matter how many people they hire to try and fix it. There's an inherent, systematic reason why. It may be wiser to shift resources to self-suppport. Do you agree?

 Management 
Ditch Your To-Do List

To-do lists are all too common, but in my experience, they are not the most effective way to get high-quality work done. Instead of making a never-ending to-do list, try creating a handful of these documents to be more effective and impactful in work and beyond. My two favorites are the snag log and the personal press release. 

What To Do When You're Burned Out

I recently came across this Hacker News thread that I think many people can relate to. Someone said they were experiencing burnout but didn't want to let their team down. The thread of responses is incredible. If you're going through a season of burnout, make sure you read this.

 Insight of the Week 
What's the Long Game?

One of the mic drop tweets I read this week was about how to evaluate projects better. It's easy to think short-term and consider what you're currently getting out of it. But the more valuable thing to do is play the long game and assess the impact of the projects you choose years (or even decades) down the road. To make the best decisions, think longer-term
