The speed of product development is just a feeling

You know, I often get a very strange itch, when on a long-distance flight: After let’s say 3-5 hours after take-off, when I’ve watched the first 0815-movie, looked through the stuff on my iPad, tried to connect to the non-existing wifi - I sometimes hope for turbulence. Not because I’m with my own Tyler Durden, but because it gives me a feeling of “moving forward”. Meaning that something is actually happening with the plane and we are making progress towards the destination. I catch myself smiling sometimes when then actually some bumps happen.
