Fantastic advice for running a distributed team who’s work outputs are purely informational.

“To be useful, the write-up of a call takes more time and effort than the call itself.”

Key takeaways:

Communicate asynchronously rather than synchronously.

Store knowledge in a document repository of some kind, instead of people’s heads.

Ideally, do both at the same time.

@cuchaz Quanta ( is the perfect collaboration platform.

People need to learn what a "sub-graph search" is and a "sub-graph timeline".

Those are the two key features for collaboration on complex docs, with distributed teams, and asynchronously.

Quanta perfects the "corporate wiki". Makes Microsoft Word Revision marks, and 'chat', and even standard wikis look like stone age artifacts by comparison.
