Love this post by Tom :: http://tomtunguz.com/apprenticeship/
I think our fast moving tech industry gets so caught up in the hustle and quick wins that we forget it takes time to acquire knowledge. I have always felt that one of the best ways to acquire knowledge is to absorb it from someone who is an expert and who is willing to teach you.
This is what I call being an apprentice. It’s not something to be ashamed of you and any one should jump at the opportunity to be an apprentice.
Take pride in it.
I consider myself one.
