Between tax season and a couple chess projects I'm working on, I might not be blogging too much in the next few days.
In the course of researching one of the chess projects, I came across this blog entry on deliberate practice (a buzzword among business gurus and chess trainers). How do experts become expert at the thing they do? And why aren't we experts? I think I've previously recommended Malcolm Gladwell's Outliers as a fun read.
For the pedantic, K. Anders Ericsson's famous paper is available here (hosted on the Freakonomics blog).
Back to work!
