In this video interview with ZDNet.com.au, Kyte explains how many questions he receives equate to “my car won’t start”.
“I’m going to do it to you — my car won’t start, why? Give me the solution. I’m not going to tell you what errors I see on the dashboard; I’m not going to tell you if I filled the car up with gas recently; I’m not going to tell you if it’s making a noise or not making a noise; but my car won’t start, why not? There’s insufficient data to even begin to answer a question like that.”
Kyte also explains how the internet has changed how questions are asked, and how he doesn’t reply with RTFM.
