    I think the question here is whether the discourse is valid, or if the discussion surrounding an important design topic is actually beneficial.

    A huge number of articles about design and the "state" of design are just the same old bla-bla-bla, yet we have created a community where we give people huge kudos (please clap?) for these pseudo-philosophical essays.

    The "look how cool I am" seems to be a bit of an assumption considering the author never really contrasts themselves to it. Heck in NYC conspicuously ignoring otherwise notable things is the norm rather than the cool.
