The Tiny Product Manual by Marc Eglon

The Tiny Product Manual

Tiny Products. Massive Impact.


There’s a magical time in any project. It’s a point of unadulterated ideation and it comes right after the flash of genius. It’s like the early nanoseconds of the universe, where the big bang turned raw energy into stuff.

This is how every project begins.

It starts with absolute nothingness.

Then a few neurons fire in a particular way and the atomic component of the idea explodes into existence.

All of the stuff and all the ideas in your world started this way. The books you read, the languages you speak, the music you dance to, the page you’re reading this on, the space shuttle, the atomic bomb. All. Started. Like. This.

Everything starts out tiny.

The Tiny Product Manual helps you turn atomic ideas into tiny products.

And shipping tiny products is the first step to changing the world.

As of this writing, no. But the functionality is being worked on and should be implemented soon!

Why tiny?

Because everything starts tiny. Some things stay tiny (like a paper clip) and some tiny products grow up into massive products (like a large hadron collider). But one thing will always be true: everything started as an atomic kernel of an idea. Making tiny products means that you finish them and share them. Putting a tiny product into the world is infinitely more valuable than an unfinished idea that's stuck in your head.

Who is this Marc Eglon chap?

I'm a scientist, writer, designer, and publisher. I'm obsessed with making things (like Hackerpreneur Magazine & Things I believe: 1. We can all self-actualise and put a dent in the universe. 2. We still underestimate the power of this ultra-connected world. 3. We owe it to the world to share our unique talents. 4. We do that by making and sharing. 5. Everything starts tiny.

Who is this for?

It's for anybody who makes things (or wants to make things) and shares them with the world. I wrote it with makers in mind. It's perfect for designers, developers, marketers, product managers, CEOs, and people who don't like to be labelled by a job title.
