The more engineering experience I get, the more and more my job is just communicating with people, and the more and more powerful I become.
@ashfurrow Please don't snap. I want to keep my computers.
@ashfurrow hell, same
@ashfurrow I haven't been in this business long, but I am increasingly convinced that communication is the most important and most chronically bad part of it
@anomaly yup yup, coding is the easy part
I think it makes the myth of the anti-social genius in tech so absurd that it hurts to contemplate it.
If you can't communicate, if you can't empathize, you are going to do a spectacular job building the wrong thing.
And it takes intelligence to design something other people can use and modify. If your lone-wolf-genius-project is incomprehensible to everyone else, you're not as bright as you thought.
@mike hard agree
@tapi oh heck yea, strong Robin Williams energy 💫
