🐤 Product Nuggets #13 — Products that didn't exist 20yr ago & how to reduce product friction
Jacob's top 5 product tweets from the past week

If you didn’t catch the article on Tuesday, I published that list for everyone to glean a little inspiration for the new year. As best as I could, I also included sub-categories, commentary and links to companies building in these spaces.

Have a great weekend!
