Product Management/UX Video

So a couple of years ago, I went to an interview, and one of the hiring managers asked me what was the KPI of a product. I had no idea, and needless to say after the interview I looked it up. Now there are 2 acronyms, KPI (Key Performance Indicator) and OKR (Objectives and Key Results by Google). Over the past, I worked with some Product Managers who knew about this, and some who knew about this but didn't really label it. My colleague once took a class at General Assembly with Hong Qu, who used to work at Google. He taught a class at GA titled Data-Driven UX Design. My colleague raved about it, but I don't know if this class is still available. He also passed out a deck... maybe it's on SlideShare

If you can't find it, I found this video. I watched about 15 minutes, and could actually understand it:

Khan Academy

Just found this great video on Kahn Academy.

Sometimes the founder, Salman Khan, will study up to 5 textbooks before he creates a video:


Here is a segment on Khan Academy's data driven analysis by former Google Executive, Eric Schmidt:

Bann

I recently found an amazing Korean restaurant in Hell's Kitchen area. The founder had started Woo Lae Oak. So much thought was put into the menu. For example, you will not see overcooked vegetables in the soups and bibimbap. In the soup, they use a prime cut of pork.

350 W 50th St, New York, 10019
(212) 582-4446

This is how the tea is served. I believe the tea was chamomile.

Friday, December 13, 2013 from 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Join us at Genspace for a presentation by Dr. Julian Adams, the President of research and development at Infinty Pharmaceuticals.

TED: The promise of research with stem cells

I just found this video which was dated Jun 2012. Susan Solomon, the founder of New York Stem Cell Foundation, speaks about the innovative technology of stem cell research, drug discovery process, statistics of drug discovery and disease-modeling in tissue, use of hardware (automated robot to print thousands of stem cell lines), use of software (to produce avatars to test side effects of drugs on organs).
