285: TZ Interview – Gabriel Weinberg / Stoking the Traction Fire

Justin talks to Gabriel Weinberg about the re-release of his book Traction and the latest news on DuckDuckGo.

  1. Paul Cowan here, updating my progress on the Straight Forward math series.

    Slower progress this month as I was giving a talk at the local javascript users meteup.

    I’m almost finished algrebra book 2. I am on the section about quadratic equations which is where my knowledge of maths will run out. I’ve ordered algebra book 3 and should be ready to start it when it arrives.

    I’m amazed how much of my previous knowledge has laid dormant in my brain as this is the first algebra I have done since I was 16 and I’m now 45. I think I must have been taught well as it is all coming back.

  2. Jason says:

    @Paul Cowan – That’s great! Just keep up the progress. Slow and steady wins the race!

  3. Richard says:

    It’s always good to have Gabriel on the show to give DuckDuckGo updates. I found the Traction book extremely useful and well written, would recommend it to anyone building a consumer site.
