Amen! Excellent commentary. You've saved me the trouble of finishing my
extended rant about how tekwrytr goes on and on about _skills_ without
ever mentioning _knowledge_. Not to mention _understanding_.

Certainly, no one is irreplaceable. But years of learning about
telephony, conferencing, VoIP, our products, etc., certainly _do_ give
me a distinct advantage over a similarly skilled writer fresh off the
street: I ask the engineers and product managers far fewer questions. In
fact, I frequently answer questions of theirs. That has far more value
than an "arcane skill set."
