    The definitive list of lists (of lists) curated on GitHub and elsewhere

    Why do we have curated lists in github?

    Example: https://github.com/jnv/lists

    - Do we not have that knowledge on the Internet?

    - Is it because google search is dying? Is it because github search is better than google search?

    - Is being on github provides ability for social interactions, while individual sites do not? Stars, comments, etc?

    - Is github more stable? Individual sites stop working randomly, while github lists pointing to other github lists will most likely stay relevant longer?

    - Doesn't that work like "Facebook for devs"?

    The whole idea that we build our knowledge as github lists looks like a community curated book, or search engine, or bookmark manager looks weird to me. The Internet is so full with automation, scripts, program, that surprises me that so much manual labor is required to run this operation.
