I found that if I don't understand something that well, I can write some blog post, and people find it hard to understand, and they say, "this guy is good. He knows many complicated concepts."
But if I invest extra time to understand it really well, and write it and explain it even a 15 year old can understand, then some people come and read it, and conclude "it is so simple. This guy is just basic. There is nothing really that great." And they lose respect for you.
But I think it is just one of the IIJTWII: It is just the way it is.
Let me add the background to this story: I was interviewing with a company, and the VP Engineering wanted to hire me even as a director of front end. And we were talking, and the VP had me talk to the CEO and COO. Along this time, I was writing something, and I can make it complicated, but I made it so simple that even a 15 year old can understand it. Possibly the CEO and the COO searched on the Internet and saw those newest posts, they actually later on retracted and wanted to only hire me as a consultant or contractor to try for 3 months first, instead of being the director of front end. These events all happened about the same time, so I think it could be due to the CEO and COO seeing something so simple, they lost the respect for it. It may be like, when people cannot understand relativity or quantum mechanics, they have a lot of respect for it, but let's say somebody is so good in them and can explain them so that they can be understood as easily as Newtonian physics, then people would lose respect for it.
