  27. 27. Synchronous and asynchronous communication
  28. 28. We should choose the form of communication for each circumstance deliberately.

  33. 33. Synchronous vs. Asynchronous Great for paging people for incidents, sorting out details quickly, and certainly for social interaction. Great for announcements, planning, reviews, idea pitching and long-form discussions that can last from hours to months.
  34. 34. Most importantly though, have clear expectations.
  35. 35. Set clear urgency and importance expectations for each communication channel.

  49. 49. Never use a foreign phrase, a scientific word, or a jargon word if you can think of an everyday English equivalent.
  50. 50. Break any of these rules sooner than say anything outright barbarous.
