there are days where i feel overly pedantic at work, but sometimes nuance really matters and it drastically uncomplicates what is being discussed. other times it scares me with how little overlap there seems to be between my knowledge and other senior peers.

as my primary function is no longer software development, i feel like i should be the last call rather than first call when pointing out differences in, for example, linker behavior. some of these topics aren’t easy but it puzzles me when i’m the only authoritative voice present.

i think part of my struggle here is that i view it all as a giant clockwork machine, with each piece fitting into place just so, and it’s hard to get others to see how this small chain of pieces fit together within the context of the greater machine without seeing it themselves.
