Chimpanzee could do a lot of things well. While other Chimps had a mind for sitting in a tree talking about strategy all day, he was busy building and making things work. He knew how to stop bowls from dripping and fix leaks wells when they were gushing water. The basics, he thought, was a skill that everyone would always need. Because as much fun as the world wide web was, having a great number of Twitter followers couldn’t fix your broken well.
