@brunowinck Generally I read a work and make my own annotations/observations first before reading/interacting with others for this very reason. I was just struck that I'd run across an article with so many annotators that I happened to know, an event which doesn't happen to me often.

This particular piece makes some astute and useful observations, but does throw the baby out with the bathwater without a keener eye on the history and point of much of the endeavor. Lack of history and experience kills him here, but it's the same thing that is causing a lot of the problem he's seeing in the space as well. I've sprinkled my thoughts into those margins now. Perhaps I'll write a more coherent rejoinder to it shortly?
