This reminds me of one of my favorite stories, that of Donald Knuth and his infamous series of books. TL,DR, he invented TeX just to typeset his own books, as well as all the little pieces that went into TeX and typesetting his books, such as a font and layout algorithm. The whole story is amazing. yakshav.es/the-patron-saint-of-yak...

 

Wow. The story is quite interesting.
Yak Shaving has its benefits to the world after all if done well as Donald Knuth did :)
