Recently Terence solved a hard image processing problem that has bugged us for years. I’m pretty good at math and image processing, but his advanced technique was a little over my head.
Am I sad that I can’t follow Terence’s mathematical magic? Hell no, it feels great! I love working with people who have skills that I don’t. At Alien Skin I’m surrounded by people who are better than me at design, programming, art, finance, testing, and customer support. I get to learn from them and we accomplish great things.
Being the only smart person in the room sounds fun on paper, but in real life it’s boring and you end up doing all the work. Smart people hire even smarter people.
