@derek The more you know about something the more people pester you for help, which they expect for free.
Better off knowing little, but alot about how to look things up.
If I write a blog post on how to do something, i make more actual references to where I got info from.
One solution is, if asked if you can help someone is to reply you can't afford my rates. :D that seems to work.
@derek I have an ever growing appreciation for the analog.
@derek Unfortunately it makes a lot of sense. And the reverse, that the less people know about tech, the easier they are taken advantage of by large corporations.
