Faster Times is a newsletter intended to contribute to the conversation around emerging technology (e.g., edge computing, crypto), the role of Big Tech in society, and the process of building great SaaS companies.

Much of the content about emerging technologies like crypto is either too technical (intended for developers) or too shallow/superficial (intended for people hoping to get rich quick). I try to approach the topic through a pragmatic lens, focusing on the real-world impact of these new technologies, particularly their impact on society and industry.

Additionally, most commentary on Big Tech is coming from voices with an obvious slant—people who've already made up their minds regarding the impact and morality of these companies and what we should do about them. I believe the situation we find ourselves in is a lot more complicated than most journalists tend to acknowledge and that it's important for people with a deeper understanding of technology business models to join the conversation. Each Big Tech player behaves differently, with a unique business model, culture and overall focus. I don't know exactly where I land on every issue, but I'm eager to explore these topics without pushing any specific agenda.

Lastly, as an experienced operator of and advisor to B2B SaaS businesses, I also share my learnings on this topic here. For the past decade, I've led Product/R&D, Strategy, Customer Experience, and Professional Services functions within the SaaS start-up ecosystem. Currently, I serve as Chief Product Officer for a B2B SaaS platform in the ecommerce space. This page summarises my approach to product development.
