Those of you who have been following along for a while know how deeply I care about this work. After being a part of great organizations like Stripe, Figma, and Google changed my life, researching and writing about the habits of ambitious, high-performing felt like the highest impact thing an operations wonk with a proclivity for the written word could work on.
I can't believe I'm saying this...but I'm going to try and put a piece software to work on the challenge of cultivating more of that "we're all in this together feeling."
Because for ambitious organizations that pride themselves in cultures of autonomy and distributed ownership, that feeling is fuel.
Constellate will be a collectively-curated feed of work-in-progress that anyone, in any corner of an organization, can rely on.
The core functionality of feeds and upvotes and reactions will feel familiar. But doing it at work with a community of trusted colleagues you’re already building with and rooting for will feel different.
Here's where you can read more about Constellate (and, raise your hand to stay in touch or get involved). I hope you do because I think we've got a shot at transforming more organizations into the sources of community and self-actualization they should be.
Arc, Sequoia's seed-stage catalyst, is in Constellate's corner (I'm still pinching myself) and over the next few weeks, they're going to have me and 28 other founders hard at work learning how to build enduring companies.
So, for the next little bit, I'm going to be giving Constellate my full attention and you won't see as many emails.
I hope you stick around (and maybe use this break to poke around the archives), because I'll be cooking up something especially for you, dear readers. But, if you want to unsubscribe until I can tell you more about exactly what that is, I won't hold it against you.
Thanks, as always, for being here.
