What I Like Most About VIN
It’s anti-Dunning-Kruger effect. The variety and type of questions asked make me realize how little I know on topics I thought were well-known to me. The questions spur me to seek an answer and share it with you. VIN is an effortless way to never stop questioning what you think you understand.
