One of the most interesting aspects of this project is the amount of time we have spent consulting with and learning from experts.
We know that the success of the project relies on expert knowledge, but we haven’t got a clear definition of what it takes to become one.
Here are a few suggestions from the wider Pilcrow team:
“An expert is the first person you go to when you have a question on a topic. It’s someone with passion about a particular topic that their knowledge is so engrained in their being that they can’t help but be an expert”
“To me an expert is someone who’s perfected their craft to the point that others can look up to them for support, guidance and advice. However there are also a few who claim to be experts, so look out for those who masquerade”
“An individual with ability to perform effortlessly within their field.”
“An expert is someone who has failed in almost every way possible.”
“An expert is a person with the experience and ability to produce consistently good work.”
“Being an expert in 2016 means knowing more about something than the Internet”
