    “What’s Not Being Said” with Zack Kanter

    Zack Kanter (@zackkanter), founder and CEO of Stedi.com, joins Erik on this episode.

    They discuss:

    - How Zack thinks about Twitter, why from outside it seems absurd, and why he calls it a “text-based role-playing game.”

    - How he navigated the idea maze in starting Stedi and the key insight he had that led him to start the company.

    - How the legibility problem from the book Seeing Like a State has changed how he approaches company-building.

    - Why he says that “code is not an asset, code is a liability” and how AWS Lambda has changed how he built Stedi —and how all of this is related to legibility.

    - Why they don’t do performance reviews and what it means to have an “event-driven” culture.

    - His perspective on bootstrapping versus taking VC, why he says that founding companies requires domain expertise now, and why he built the company in Boulder.
