Wow, that sounds awesome. It kind of reminds me of something I read a
while back from Paul Graham (well, I think it was PG... but I can't
find it at the moment) about how he was initially afraid of doing
sales, because he's an engineer and a nerd, but found it surprisingly
easy, because he built what he honestly believed was the best product
and could simply explain to the customers why it was the best.
Anyway, +1 for communication hacks for engineers. :)
