A few years ago, I was thinking that when I retire, I might spend a considerable amount of time on filling in holes in Wikipedia in areas where I have some knowledge.

It is not going to happen. I still have about eight years left until retirement. For several years I have had this feeling that noone cares about an old man's experience and knowledge. Things are done differently nowadays. The world is different. People have different tastes, thoughts and opinions. What I can contribute has no significant value. So how will it be eight years from now?

I have come to realize that whatever I do won't benefit anyone, except possibly myself. The same goes for the coding I do in my spare time: The software will never get out of my personal PC. I write a few posts in CP and every now and then in two other specialized fora, but 95% of my writing is read by noone. Its only purpose is for me to clear up my own messy thoughts.

Let the world go its own way. Remember how (un)important you considered near-retirement people when you were young. Accept that today, you have become as unimportant as you were thinking then.
