Learn in Public is an investment in your & human society’s future. If you share the process of learning online, you will receive much more feedback than sharing in print. That will accelerate your learning. Also, everyone has unique experiences and learning and it’s valuable for someone in the world. Unless it appears, it’ll be just lost and it’s also a loss for human society. That's why we need "Learn in Public".
