I wrote this:

There's no such thing as "stuff you should know" - only "stuff you know" and "stuff you don't"

I met an interesting guy in San Francisco last week who shared some of his experiences trying to get a job in tech there. When he described the people in San Francisco and their attitude, he bowled me over with this line:

"People here don't expect you to know everything. There's no such thing as "stuff you should know" ... just "stuff you know" and "stuff you don't"

It's such an accepting attitude, and one of the wisest things I've heard in a while. I'm often blown away by how people haven't heard of this thing or that thing that I've known for a long time. Equally, I appreciate how much I can learn from others.
