Great work. How can people act on the info on specific cities ? There should be a way to balance wrong/right/... for variables that are subjective (weather, friendliness to foreigners, ....)

Right now it's crowdsourced from an open Google spreadsheet at http://nomadlist.io/edit/

Later I'd like to implement so that it uses baseline values from multiple inputs (e.g. like Numbeo does)

Love MS lately :)

Love the UI and the auto-quotes on empty posts :)

Love it. The only thing missing for me (and i've been using it for a while, happy to see it here!) is a preview of the next day events.

We've been thinking about it. We might too it at some point, that's a great idea.

(i know there's normally no politics here, but i think it's worth sharing)

drag and drop the sound "cards" on the characters and chill out

A great demonstration of a market disruption by pricing. Xavier Niel's show was a mix of Jobs (staging, rhythm, ...) and Bezos (pricing, competition, ...). Wow !

-----


It's also disruption by simplicity:

– the Terms and Conditions sheet will only be "one page long" and "understandable by anyone", compared to the multiple pages of legalese of the current operators;

– they only have 2 offers (with a variant for current clients), compared to hundreds from the competition.

We all know the value of simplicity when making purchasing decisions (explained in The Paradox of Choice by Barry Schwartz).

Well done Free.

The comparison with Jobs is very far-fetched in my opinion. Niel was rude, aggressive, partisan, almost violent with his words, and was all around not a good orator.

The show was a blast nevertheless!

-----


These days, as soon as a CEO goes on stage to present his disruptive product, and does it in a customer-oriented rather than shareholder-oriented way (casual vocabulary, no tie), he's deemed Jobsian.

That's obviously a gross reduction of what Job's Way was, but it is Job's most enduring legacy to the corporate communication world.

Besides, being "rude, aggressive, partisan, almost violent" sounds hardly un-jobsy, although he tamed it down during keynotes.

Ok, maybe far-fetched you're right. But a class of its own with the old-fashioned movie at the beginning, the simple charts and slides, liked it :)

-----


He had no Jobsness, but the talk structure is Applian all the way. Taking the 'State of the Art' (sic) , breaking it down to expose flaws, then giving more.

-----


He he, well said. The thing is i like that band, it never disappointed me, and as WA says below, it fits my needs...

-----


You're right, and it's just an abuse of language ...

I've always found it difficult as a french guy who's been taught british english to live in new york.

At my first day at work, i asked a coworker if he wanted to go for a quick "fag" downstairs. He never spoke to me again.
