Member since:

You got modded up, but the article's first point takes your attitude into account:

have an open mind to sources of knowledge that others may shut out.

Whatever the merits of the technology, you'll still do well to learn the basics of it before it's needed.

You included MSDN in your list, but look at what the article actually says about MSDN:

Researching for answers means more than typing several keywords into a search engine or posting a question at Stack Overflow or the MSDN forums.
