part of my job description

When I sit down with colleagues, I always assume that everyone in the room knows more about something than I do.

However, most people seem to agree with the dictum that "it is better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool, than to open it and remove all doubt" (a saying attributed variously to Mark Twain & to Abraham Lincoln), so the hard part often is just getting the conversation started.

My solution? Ask dumb questions!
