Quotes From This Episode:

“I see a lot of problems in marketing teams between the different people in the team… There’s a lot of tension. There’s a lot of broken processes that go into that.” —@oligardner

 “What I’m trying to do is take these design trends looking back over history, and especially what’s coming out now, and trying to figure out what data we need to analyze them and to validate them.” —@oligardner

“At the end of the day, optimization is just making something better from whatever metric you happen to be caring about at the time.” —@oligardner

“When you have that optimization lens as you go through life you become a better marketer, a better designer.” —@oligardner
