I am not interested in my own edits. They are very boring. I don't
have any especial interest in, let's say, Mardetanha's edits at fa.wp
as I don't know Persian. However, he is my friend and I am interested
in what is going with him. I can inform myself about him at Facebook
or at Twitter, but I could do that at Wikimedia, too. Which means that
I could spend much more time on Wikimedia and probably to make some
fix or a little bigger edit anywhere. Instead, I am just doing my
bureaucratic tasks, while I am socializing at some other place. Which
gives my content there, not to Wikimedia.
