Everyone loves an underdog because it's so much easier to root for the little guy. Being a fan of the little guy is a win-win proposition: if the underfunded, scrappy team loses it can easily be chalked up to existential forces beyond their control. Conversely, if the little guy wins then it's suddenly a tale of heroics and the conquering of incredible odds -- you know, the sort of thing they make movies out of.
Pop quiz: in the information world, who is Goliath in the following scenario? The Spokane Public Library or Google?
Hint: Everything that Google has access to, your public library also has access to. But the reverse isn't true. Yes, that's right. As hard as it is to imagine, your Spokane Public Library is bigger than Google. We are Goliath. We have top-shelf information that Google can't reach.
This twist on the conventional perception of the information world poses a slightly different scenario: leaving aside the strict Biblical interpretation for now, would you rather be a fan of David or a partner of Goliath?
I'd go with the odds and pick Goliath every time.
So enjoy rooting for anemic, geeky little ol' Google but when it comes time to have some muscle on your side get in touch with the Spokane Public Library. We are shockingly strong.
