I was reading Jeffrey Zeldman’s interview on The Great Discontent and this quote stuck out:
Another thing—don’t be afraid to ask for help. I sucked at Flash and I’m glad web standards won for many reasons, but one selfish reason is because I found Flash unpleasant to use as a creative tool. I simply didn’t understand it well enough, but I was at a professional level where I couldn’t go to a community college and take a Flash course. Someone would say, “There’s Jeffrey Zeldman taking a remedial Flash class.” You have to find a way to keep learning and not get trapped in whatever imaginary status you have.

I just found this really amusing and wanted to share.
