People who do things

I’ve noticed a pattern. People who do public things tend to get perceived as… corporations or something. Or like they have super powers. Or like, if they can do the thing they’re doing, they must also be able to do tons of other stuff.

When maybe they’re doing all they can.

People who do stuff in public are just people. Don’t necessarily have tons of resources or organization backing or power.

For instance, people who organize a conference might not have any ability to make it cheaper, no matter how much they want to. And they might not be able to moderate a list quickly, or write in simple language. Or maintain a neurotypical affect. Or talk to parents. Or any number of other things.

People all have limitations. So do groups. Even when what they do is public.
