    I'm not sure I agree with your argument that outsiders can learn from other people's feedback on other people's projects.

    I think the learning comes from creating the best work you possibly can, having it critiqued and then iterating on that feedback.

    For an outsider, they are missing the critical first step of thinking through each decision and reaching their potential. In fact, I would argue that there is little learning that can occur because of hindsight bias. By time an outsider sees a project and all the feedback they will say, "of course, I wouldn't have made those mistakes".

    Edit: grammar
