Yellow Highlighter: Cranky Product Manager

I am enamored with this new (to me) site, The Cranky Product Manager. First, I love the title. Second, I love the premise. Third, I love that I’m getting what looks to be an inside look into her world. Fourth, she gave me a good idea over at lifehack.org (I ordered my purse). Fifth, I mean c’mon… what great website design!

Not since Fake Movie Critic (sigh- I miss her) have I had such a fun time reading someone’s impression of the world.

My new faux-best-friend, Dave Murphy, “opener of doors,” as I call him around the old hovel, is bound to love CPM for being a perfect amateur’s eyeball into the event. (By the way, Dave: read this. It’s what inspired me to do more than half of what I do:

There’s a name for people who work for the love of it: amateurs. The word now has such bad connotations that we forget its etymology, though it’s staring us in the face. “Amateur” was originally rather a complimentary word. But the thing to be in the twentieth century was professional, which amateurs, by definition, are not.

    Hi Chris, been enjoying reqding you “my best advice.”. Great articles.

    Anywa, remember the Cranky PM? well, here she is – 2 years later after your initial link. Seriously, the Cpm would like to thank you. You really kick-started the readership of the weeks-old Cranky Product Manager blog with this post – about 2 people were reading it before you came along. Two years later the CPM has several thousand subscribers! It is awesome to be able to rant and rave about the insanities of software development to such a large sympathetic audience.

    Thanks SO MUCH!
