Slack vs Rivals

It takes 32 steps to sign-up for Teams, Microsoft’s horrendous designed Slack competitor. Facebook Workspace needs consultants from big firms such as Deloitte to get companies going. Let’s just say Slack is so simple that even a CEO can sign-up and start using it within a couple of minutes. Yes, that is the main reason why I am proud to be an angel investor in Slack. Much like Jeff Weiner, who currently works for Microsoft.

What is Cartography in the 21st Century

Mike Foster of MIT Urban Studies and Planning has put together a great slide presentation around cartography, its evolution and how it is changing and adapting for the 21st century. What does a modern cartographer do, and how do they compare to those in the past.  The presentation is packed with wisdom. I love Foster’s succinct and presicent comment: cartography is communication.
