Geek Reading November 12, 2015

Seth Godin leads us off with an excellent post about taking your own progress report. Are you asking yourself the hard questions? On AVC, Fred Wilson talks about watching what users do, not what they say. Granted, this is based on the Twitter favorite changes, but it applies to any startup with users. On the development side of the world, Edmund Kirwan wrote about your code being too “concrete”. The basic idea is that you should write against interfaces as much as possible. More importantly, some of the analysis that Edmund is doing is very interesting, so take a look at some of his older posts as well.
