The Invisibles

Adam Rubenfire, WSJ, July 10, 2014, talks about a new book out called The Invisibles: The Power of Anonymous Work in an Age of Relentless Self-Promotion, by David Zweig.

The Invisibles are highly skilled workers who go unnoticed by the public.

The author had been a magazine fact checker--he was invisible unless he made a mistake. The better he did his job, the less he was recognized.

Most Invisibles like it that way. They may make a lot of money and supervise many people, but don't crave the limelight.

Invisibles work for the work itself.

Sort of like this blog, I guess. Year in, year out, I get a thousand hits a day, rarely any comments, sniff...I just do it to do it.

You're welcome.
