This newsletter started out as a resource for product managers and other technology workers. It has since evolved into an outlet that includes topics such as music and book recommendations, internet culture, and broader technology trends. It’s a way to reflect together, and hopefully, provide you with some useful and interesting recommendations.

About me

My name is Rian van der Merwe. I'm a product manager with a background in user experience design. I am focused on designing and building high-quality software that people love to use. I also wrote a book about the process called Making It Right.

Elezea is a Swahili word that means to elucidate, explain, clarify, and relate. Everything I write is in that spirit.
