My name is Zef Hemel. I use writing as a tool to structure my thinking, and to reflect, and adapt as a result. I’m transparent by nature, and have found that sharing the things I’m reading and thinking about — generally around the topics of technology, management and people — is not only helpful for myself, it can be helpful for others as well. And often, in response, people point me to things I wasn’t yet aware of, or challenge my ideas or conclusions. Now, that sounds like a win all around. Welcome to Zef’s Musings.
