Is that a skill? How does one train one's "here's something interesting I found out" muscle?
At my previous job, we had a weekly Engineering-wide (5 teams, ~25 people) huddle. Talk about highlights of the week, interesting problems, good things we shipped, etc.
Some people always had a way of highlighting fascinating problems. I rarely could. When engaging in conversation, however, things were different: I could always bring up interesting problems from recent experience.
I think they're instances of the same problem.
