An Internet ThanksgivingI'd like to thank the product managers, who study the data and talk to customers in order to figure out the right color or right kind of button needed on an app. Their work lives in the myriad of details that go into creating a product.

We believe the Internet does affect these four basic Ps and adds a set of it's own four correspondent objectives that extends beyond these basic four.
