I'm not the only one.

There are lots of good people out there. I don't have any statistics, but my guess is that for every greedy get-rich-quick dot.com that for one brief moment thinks it can convert a half-baked idea into millions of dollars, there is at least a handful of people who are happy to make a small contribution to the ever-widening pool of human experience on the web. So what if all too often these are personal diaries that are hardly of interest to anyone other than the author and his/her mother? The blogger phenomenon seems to prove that real value can be, and actually is, out there, and that people can, and even do, find it. One of my favorite voluntary projects is an excellent index of educational sites for children in Hebrew. Two teachers from the north of Israel take more time than they have available from their other, earn-a-living, projects to build and maintain this site which definitely rivals the established indices built by established content providers who receive substantial funding for their projects. If anything, a project such as this contributes more value than the Boidem since it's something that actually gets used.
