Essays on tech, growth, and startups at andrewchen
Get my newsletter, usually once a week – it features long-form essays on what’s going on here in Silicon Valley. I’ve written 550+ essays which have been featured and quoted in The New York Times, Fortune, Wired, and WSJ.

Clay Shirky Fifteen years ago, a research group called The Fraunhofer Institute announced a new digital format for compressing movie files. This wasn’t a terribly momentous invention, but it did have one interesting side effect: Fraunhofer also had to figure out how to compress the soundtrack. The result was the Motion Picture Experts Group Format 1, Audio Layer III , a format you know and love, though only by its acronym, MP3.

GrowthHackers - Premier Growth Community Hi Sophie - that's awesome you're seeing cross-functional growth teams from the get go! Cross-functional growth teams are not unique, although they can be difficult to get right in order to truly impact the growth of customer value.
