Going on a product hunt: Alfred

September 18, 2014 Addison Huddy

Every Wednesday, Pivotal Labs Product Managers gather over lunch. Sometimes we discuss a book we have been reading. Other times we discuss a particular client’s product and offer feedback. Recently we have been trying a bit of an experiment: we critique products on Product Hunt. Informally, we have started to refer to these exercises as “product hunts.” For 60 minutes, we dissect the product, business model, and technology, and throw our thoughts on a mural to post here.

This week’s product hunt was special because we selected from this years TechCrunch Disrupt finalists, ultimately critiquing the winner of the competition, Alfred. Alfred is the “first human powered operating system for your life.”

We also had the privilege of our PM friends at Yammer, Ankit, Philip, and Laurence, joining pivots Rhea, Kirk, Shuqiao, and myself for the Alfred product hunt.

Check out the discussion via the mural.
