They can't.  Just like I can't compete in any other activity where I
spend 4 hours a week and someone else spends 60 hours a week working
on that activity, and vice versa.  I'm terrible at volleyball, and
my friend The Volleyball Jock is terrible at reading packet dumps.

Why is this a problem?  More generally, why should it be a problem
that people with different amounts of time invested end up with
different experiences an abilities?
