Watching someone code teaches many subtle techniques that people don't even realize they do. Especially the holistic set of techniques an individual uses and how they interact.

Also, probably more smart people (not saying the smartest, but maybe even that) don't spend time distilling their ideas publicly as they are so focused on taking on challenging things.
