    Absolutely not. There's many different types of growth. It's very easy to make hacky products, or products that are straight up annoying. Growth, at the end of the day, is just about positively increasing quantifiable metrics. How you accomplish this is up to you. You can do it by spamming your users with emails, push notifications, and lying to them, or you can do it by actually creating value and building something people enjoy. It's not as black and white as the above - a lot of levers some people will consider annoying other people will enjoy, so there's a lot of black and white.

    Probably ~life? I think I'm looking for more of a philosophical discussion about our choices around death.

    I assumed it wasn't a bug - that they were selectively showing you products based on your user behaviors and what was in your cart. I can't be sure, though.

    This is a blog post I wrote the other day on exploring dollar shave clubs site and how they manage their product offerings. Quite a few companies do these sorts of variable product offerings based on user behavior and whats in their cart.

    If you know of any other companies that do something similar please let me know, I'm also working on a larger article with overarching themes and methodologies!
