I was thinking the other day about Wikipedia, and the people who write it. One the one hand it’s easy to snort derisively about how these people have nothing better to do with their free time than obsessively catalogue and analyse, and yet, on the other hand, it comes in very handy that someone has made the effort for the benefit of lazier types like myself.
This can apply to the offline world as well: think of all the areas of knowledge and expertise we might find dull or mystifying, and yet someone has taken the time to look into it, understand it, and communicate it to others. It’s hard to believe that anyone is passionate enough about, say, sewage systems that they would make it their life’s work, and yet thank God people like that exist.
