This is a bit of an unusual update and essentially a link to other documents.
I'm fascinated by interesting memos written for an internal audience - a company, a campaign or even for the President. Raw, not smoothened over for PR departments, they help shed light on how people really think inside institutions.
These are challenging to find. They typically seem to come into the public domain in one of three ways: through being really old, being part of some lawsuit/legal process or, sadly, being part of a hack.
Over the years, I’ve collected several of them and finally got around to publishing a few on my site. From Zuck’s memo on why FB should buy Unity to classic media memos to Presidential advice, they cover a gamut of impactful writing. They’ve personally helped me in my own writing in many ways.
Hope you enjoy them as much as I have over the years.
