Live from Ireland, it’s travel tech we wish would die, embarrassing tech fads we’ve bought, Apple products we want to bring back from the dead, and dream features for Siri and Alexa.
Edmond Lau, author of The Effective Engineer and a leader on Quip’s user growth and engagement team, shares how engineers can make a greater impact, avoiding the layers of product and organizational complexity that often block them, strategies for prioritizing work, and much more.

To celebrate reaching 100 episodes, Myke came up with a game.
With each episode of The Important Thing, I find a smart person on the planet and we talk about one thing… usually.
In the second episode, I am excited to be joined by my fellow Guardian John Siracusa to discuss the video game Destiny. Proudest moments, total time wasted, and the reality of the Hunter handicap – it’s all there.1

I’ve started a podcast.
Each episode, I find a smart person somewhere on the planet, and we talk about The Important Thing. I suspect we’re going to wander a bit, but wandering is usually the best part.
I’m just delighted to kick off the first episode1 with Tiff Arment where The Important Thing is pens2. In this first episode, we talk pen origin stories, we dive deep on fountain pens, and, uh, we talk video games, too.
Enjoy it now or download for later. Here’s a handy feed that I’m submitting to all the things.
Wow. There are a lot of moving parts in setting up a podcast. This is a beta release and I continue to tinker with all the things. Special thanks to Marco Arment for saving my ass no less than three times during this process. I’m working on getting The Important Thing feed posted to all the usual places. If you’d like to discuss this podcast, please join the #theimportantthing channel on the Rands Leadership Slack and let’s chat. ↩
Tiff provided this amazing shot of the pens we discuss. ↩
