Geek Reading November 20, 2015

Macworld starts our day with a bit of nostalgia, an ode to Kai’s Power Goo. I know this isn’t news but it shows you how much was possible 20 years ago and user interfaces still tend to suck now. First Round Review gives us an excellent post on scaling yourself as a technology leader. Anyone that is looking to lead people, even as an architect or technical lead, should be reading this. On AVC, Fred Wilson talks about getting the deal done. Sometimes you just need to bring in some cash (or release a product) so you accept some less than ideal terms to make things work. Valeria Maltoni has a great post on Conversation Agent where she talks about navigating human biases in predictions. Using the story of the chess match between Kasparov and Deep Blue really shows the effects of this kind of thing.
