jsPsych is a library that allows scientists to run behavioral experiments in a browser. What I found interesting is that the introductory paper has been cited more than 290 times in academic publications, yet only has ~520 stars on GitHub. 🤔

This project (and many like it) could very well help create the most potentially-revolutionary software without anyone even knowing it.

I guess what I'm trying to get at is most software has dependencies written by others. Next time you run npm install, and you see something like "added 84 packages from 72 contributors" those contributors are real people who are all working on software that will help create the next big thing. 🎉
