One feature of kindness is that it enables one half of the double meaning of the term “care,” while it enables the other half. To really care about someone or something, you need to tap into genuine kindness. To care for someone or something can merely be a job. But this job is also reduced without the intention of kindness. That’s why maintainers call on kindness to care for each other and for the resources we all share. This presentation was given in July 2019 at the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) Summer Meeting held in Tacoma, Washington.
