Discussion on: Am I an expert developer or just an expert googler?

I've been a firm believer that googling solutions is a skill. In fact, it is one of things I check when hiring a developer.

Your post reminds me of the following quora question with this title, Why should I hire a software engineer if I can just copy and paste code from Stack Overflow?

Awesome post!

The link from quora is very interesting, thanx.
I knew the story mentioned in the top answer but instead of the old man and the ship engine it was simply a technician and a fridge. same concept:
2$ for a small kick
98$ for knowing where to kick
