I think APUG's greatest contribution to photography is to give everyone at work a place to sneak off to during lunch, or those short mental breaks between two tasks, where they can spend a few moments reading about a subject that actually interests them (at whatever level).

I work from home most days, and I find it facinating to watch the ebb and flow of the members "Online" and photo gallery "Views" numbers as a function of the local time in all the time zones around the world. You can see it happening if you watch closely.
