Re: "patronising" techies that "sneered" at politicians

Dear Amber, Try these three simple steps to stop being sneered at:

1. Ask for expert advice

2. Keep asking until you understand the problem

3. Take the advice.

As a side-effect, you may find that the ideas you've been told to promote don't seem so good. That is not a bad thing: maybe those ideas aren't so good. At a minimum, at this point you should go back to the person who gave you those ideas and put some new questions to them; if they do have answers, then take those back to the other expert. Get educated.

Yes, it's hard work, but it's your job.

As a very wise man once wrote: you don't use science to show that you're right, you use science to become right.
