I disagree. Is it more useful to have information on a random band
from the local scene than to have it on the Beatles? Is it more useful
to have the soccer results of the second team of the 14- and 15-year
old youth team of FC Smallville than those of AC Milan? Is it more
useful to have information on me (having 'published' a PhD thesis)
than on George Orwell?
