    I think this is more the nature of writing than something specific to designers? I really like the idea of writing as "public thinking". I write to clarify my thoughts, to sort out any inconsistencies in my argument. Once that's done in my head, other people get to dissect it and show me where my logic has failed. That's what's happening in this thread as well. So I'm able to make changes or clarify what I meant based on what others have said.

    In short, I think we should take a less cynical view of this. Let's see writing as a way to collectively make sense of our profession.
