Framing Effect

The framing effect is a cognitive bias where people react differently to the same information depending on how it is presented. 
This effect can be used in business and personal life to influence people’s decisions and behaviors.

At Meta, it is one of the critical ways of thinking for managers. You wish to lead by doubling down on people’s strengths, which is a superpower that brings results and happiness.

Get Things Done – Lessons From Yahoo, Google, Netflix And Meta

Google, Meta, and Netflix are part of a small elite group of innovative and successful tech companies of our time. They have made a name for themselves in business and technology. All these companies are pioneering new technologies, products, and services. 


Google’s search engine is a household name synonymous with finding information online. The mission is to “organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.” They are doing a fabulous job on that. However, the future is still determined by Google’s Bard and the competition with OpenAI and Microsoft.


Formerly known as Facebook, Meta is a social media giant connecting billions worldwide. Meta has not only revolutionized the way we communicate and interact with each other, but it has also changed how businesses and brands reach out to their target audience.

Meta’s acquisition of Oculus has given the company an edge in the virtual reality space, and the prospects of the Metaverse are still in the ‘dust’ – but it will be interesting if the future looks like “Ready Player 1”.


Netflix has disrupted the entertainment industry by offering a subscription-based streaming service and investing in original content. How will the competition with HBO and Disney shape the future? That’s a good question.

But what can we learn from them? 

In the following slides, I focused on essential aspects.
If I missed something, please let me know.

Berkshire Hathaway Shareholder Letter 2022

Like every year, it’s a pleasure to read the words of wisdom from Warren. His annual letter gives us a glimpse into his mind and how he sees the world. It’s fascinating, and each time is surprising. Warren is an excellent writer who put a smile on my face.

I’m looking forward to watching his ‘Investing Carnaval’ at the beginning of May.

OK, here are the parts I enjoyed most:

Product Management – From Mission to Roadmap

When we are talking about a roadmap in the context of product management, we mean a shared source of truth that outlines the vision, direction, priorities, and progress of a product over time.
It’s a plan of action that aligns the organization around short and long-term goals for the product or project and how they will be achieved.

It is an essential tool for product planning and serves as a communication channel between product management and other stakeholders. Product managers need to understand how to create a product roadmap and how to keep it updated, and keeping it updated with reality is the challenging part.

As Mike said: “Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.”
Or in other version (popular in the army) – “No plan survives first contact with the enemy.”
That’s why we must invest in keeping it as close as possible to the changing reality.

Second order thinking in practice

Some decisions seem like wins at first, but turn out to be losses over time. Second-order thinking is the ability to think about the consequences of one’s actions, and to consider how different courses of action can affect the long-term outcomes. It is a tool that will help you examine the long-term effects of your decisions.
In some cases, try to shift the timelines. Will this decision be impactful in 5 days? 4 weeks? 12 months? 10 years?

By doing this, you are looking at the larger picture and taking a longer-term view.
To do this well, you will need to look at both the direct and indirect consequences of your decisions

Second-order thinking involves taking into account the ripple effect of your decisions and how they can affect the future. It requires you to think beyond the immediate outcomes and consider the future implications of your current choices. This is especially important for business decisions, where a single decision can have lasting implications.

The ESG Data Ambiguity


ESG rating services are essential for investors. However, there is a high variance between them and when I’m saying high variance – it’s more like huge variance.
A good example is America’s most valuable automobile company – Tesla.
MSCI ranks it at the top of the car industry for sustainability, whereas FTSE ranks it as the worst car producer globally. 


You read it right. 

Tesla is both the best and the worst.

One rating agency claims “It’s the best” while another is putting it in last place. The discrepancy reflects the fact that MSCI judges Tesla to be almost perfect on carbon emissions because of its clean technology, while FTSE, which evaluates factory emissions, regards the firm as a serious offender. In this post we will see what are the characteristics of this challenge and how ESGgo platform can help to address them.

Market Trends Talk – swampUp 2019

The world has many buzzwords that people like to use. Some are more relevant to the real world and some aren’t. If yesterday was powered by new products and features, today is going to be filled by insights from our communities.

There are around 37 million developers in the world (according to GitHub last report) so it’s a substantial community. Moreover, DevOps is growing at a rapid pace. Btw, according to StackOverflow last survey – DevOps developers and site reliability engineers are among the highest paid, most experienced developers most satisfied with their jobs, and are looking for new jobs at the lowest levels.

I think we can all agree that data is stronger than opinions, rights?
This is what I really like about the special point of view that we have at JFrog. As the “database of DevOps“, we are sitting in a unique place – holding the output of what developers producing.
This is giving us excellent visibility into trends and the real world.

What does this mean?

It’s about contrasting perception with reality.
We combined our own data from 5000 customers with internal and external researches in an effort to give you a clear picture of the current state and what are the DevOps trends for the next 12-18 months.

The main challenges
