It sounds like one of the better curses to have.
Happy New Year.

john commented on the word curse of knowledge
My first word for 2008. An eye-catching phrase, but I hope it doesn't have any bearing on the new year. I'm probably immune, since I don't know very much ;-)
Happy New Year, everybody!

"This so-called curse of knowledge, a phrase used in a 1989 paper in The Journal of Political Economy, means that once you’ve become an expert in a particular subject, it’s hard to imagine not knowing what you do."
