What I talk about when I talk about product
Sometimes, software building can feel a lot like running.
“I'm often asked what I think about as I run. I always ponder the question. What exactly do I think about when I'm running? I don't have a clue.”
Haruki Murakami, What I Talk About When I Talk About Running
At The Browser Company, we have a belief that says assume you don’t know. It underpins a lot of how and why we started building Arc, and is the starting point to some of the largest decisions we’ve made. A steady mix of intuition, experimentation — and endurance.
Sometimes it’s thrilling.
Other times, much like running, software building can be meandering.
And hard to talk about.
Truthfully, we weren’t quite sure if we should share a true behind the scenes of what product discussions actually look like for our team — but we’re learning to do the things that make us most uncomfortable.
Some days it’s about the question behind the question.
Most times, we don’t have a clue.
