The decision matrix

Last week’s newsletter took off for vacation. Facebook Oversight Board’s decision reminded me of the time when Lebron James used  his “decision" to do more for the public good, raise millions for charity and was demonized for it. Every platform is a form of power. What do you do when you realize, like many at Basecamp, that the platform on which you’ve built power does not wish to see you exercise yours?

Do you stay the course or take your power back?

Eid Mubarak
