Aww come on man! You gotta link to the pitch video!

Chris Busse

Good notes! Sounds like another great conference.


I don't have a link to the pitch movie; David had it with him.


On the "say x positives before 1 negative" you might want or read "The Man Who Lied To His Laptop" by Clifford Nass. Basically they figured out that people react the same to computers as they do other people. That let them actually test all kinds of stuff about Human Relationships no one had been able to test before. He covers sandwiching negative feedback with positive. Apparently that's the worst thing you can do.

That does sound interesting. To be fair to Scott, making a "rule" out of it was my (bad) idea. He just pointed out the research that a relationship where the # of positives don't outweigh the # of negatives by a LOT will crash.


I would be interested to hear more on the stuff Scott Crabtree was mentioning to you. Did you ever go back and find your old notes?
