“It’s really hard to design products by focus groups. A lot of times, people don’t know what they want until you show it to them.”
– Steve Jobs, interview with BusinessWeek, May 25 1998
We were pretty nervous about how our world was going to look last week. Knowing the Mayan “End of Days” was only a few days away, we decided to go out on a limb and put together a focus group.
We chose to focus our focus group on how improving our current integration with Harvest could make life easier for people using both applications. We’ve already got a working integration, but we really want to build a powerful add-on for Harvest users.
We couldn’t agree more. We see it as we work together as a team on projects. We recognize that we are members of our respective communities. We’re are all a part of our own village, whether that’s our culture, neighbourhood or city. We know that we have a responsibility to recognize others as we strive to do what brings good things to the world.
