I think it’s important to point out here that this is not a swipe or downplaying the importance of the community. The contributors and discussions that are shared there often times border on the level of brilliance. I have learned immensely from the leaders and contributors there. This is simply a personal account of how I began to look outside the Matrix, and what I … (6 comments)
