I bumped into a guy recently who said he'd read some of my articles. He said he liked them because "they're not right or wrong, just thought-provoking pieces, trying to encourage people to think creatively."

Um, ok.

I actually do intend for most of my articles to be right (i.e. correct, reasonable, useful, etc). I try to leave room for nuance and alternative perspectives, and I try to avoid being excessively dogmatic or prescriptive. But I am indeed aiming to be more than provocative.

Still, if that's what some readers get out of my articles, I guess it's better than nothing, right?
