Foursquare’s new release was a big deal. I wrote yesterday about the courage it takes to make these kind of changes. Fred posted today about how he loves the “like” for check-ins. My personal favorite is the amazing new feed. I have already discovered several awesome lists and to-dos in the feed. I can now add those with a single click. Before the new release I might not even have seen them.
All of this points to the importance of product and with it product management for the success of startups. I therefore want to bring more attention to a wonderful community of product managers that you can find at ProductTank. Martin Eriksson from USV portfolio company Covestor is one of the driving forces behind this group. They now have meetups in London, New York and Amsterdam.
They are also running what looks to be an excellent conference this September in London called Mind The Product 2012 (hence the title of this post). I would encourage everyone working on or interested in product management to check out this event!
