Weekly Reading: Some interesting stuff

• An interview with Prashant Jain of HDFC Mutual Fund - http://www.morningstar.in/posts/44081/conversation-prashant-jain.aspx

• Read a very interesting article on building the 10,000 experiment mindset instead of 10,000 hrs of deliberate practice - https://medium.com/the-mission/forget-about-the-10-000-hour-rule-7b7a39343523
Following the 10,000-experiment rule means starting your day with not just a to-do list but a “to-test” list like Leonardo Da Vinci. According to Walter Isaacson, one of Da Vinci’s biographers, “Every morning his life hack was: make a list of what he wants to know. Why do people yawn? What does the tongue of a woodpecker look like?”
As you go through your day, following the 10,000-experiment rule means constantly looking for opportunities to collect data rather than just doing what you need to do. It means adding a deliberate reflection process based on reviewing data before the day ends.

The company announced that it had a new chip custom-built for self-driving cars, and that it was working with more than 320 partners who would use the technology to power their vehicles. It also announced a gaming monitor the size of a television, creating a new class of large-screen devices with the refresh speed required for professional gaming - https://qz.com/1179116/best-of-ces-2018-nvidias-chips-googles-thirst-razers-project-linda-riding-modobag/
