I must admit that I have missed out some essential professional knowledge: After believing that 35 years as a professional software developer (following a Master degree education) had taught me the essentials, I now realize that I am void of one of pieces of knowledge ranking among the top ten: I didn't even recognize the name of Jack Dorsey. Even less would I be able to identify him from a photo.

Maybe this is an indication that I should consider an early retirement. How can I claim to be a computer professional without recognizing the face of the Twitter CEO? I know understand that this is essential, not only to developing software, but even to use of any sort of digital technology.

I happen to know who owns WhatsApp and Instagram, but I never considered that essential to my role as a computer professional. You could easily pick two other companies that I wouldn't have the clue about who owns them, and I would fall further down on Digital Knowledge scale.
