Doing Things

Matt Berger Apr 23, 2012

Some good advice posted on the wall at the headquarters of mobile app maker Flipboard in Palo, Alto, Calif. I captured it on Instagram during my visit to Flipboard’s space-challenged office today.

The place was overflowing with computer programmers “doing things” to enhance and improve the company’s breakout social magazine app for the iPhone and iPad. It’s in refreshing contrast to most company mottos: “talk about things endlessly.”

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
