The Most Inspiring Thing…

I didn’t mention it at the time, but the most inspiring thing I’ve ever heard was from a presenter at the NCSA conference last month. This person has more degrees – and published stuff – than most of the people that were in the room.

“When we get up here, we all feel like frauds. And someone else is going to notice, and yell ‘They’re a fraud!’ But we get up here anyway.”

And then I remember that it’s only incompetent people who don’t realize their incompetence – and therefore, I am neither incompetent nor crazy.

You should remember that, writers, before you visit this site.
