Learning in Public

Sharing the process of building/learning something in public is better that sharing the goal of building it. Advantages of sharing the process...

  • Creating tight feedback loops early in the process.
  • Forces work to be done in publishable chucks
  • Increased creativity - talking to others will get you more ideas
  • Network effect - people with similar ideas come to you

Process

  • Make it easy to share. Tweets rather than blog posts.
  • Find people excited about your content.
  • Do it regularly - on a schedule.

Once you are comfortable with the rhythm, increase the sophistication - do podcasts, videos, etc.
