What is your philosophy on meetings?

I like to do ones in which things are actually figured out. Most days, I’ll have meetings scheduled back-to-back for many hours. I believe in thinking in public, figuring things out with people, in meetings, with my thought processes visible.

We have a very geodistributed company, and I’ve been a remote CEO for 28 years, so almost all my meetings are through web conferencing. For a couple of years now, I’ve been livestreaming some of our more intellectually and technically interesting product design meetings.

I’ve done nearly 500 hours of that so far. It’s an interesting process having instant chat feedback from experts who are watching the livestream.
