I find these articles very irritating, it’s always pedantic nitpicking at a narrow definition of a word or process to then pitch some “thought leadership” content that is merely a marginal iteration of the concept they spend the intro criticizing.

Between the need for titles to be somewhat catchy and the need for ongoing content, we are really at odds with how knowledge is actually supposed to grow once a discipline is pretty mature, and this just creates noise to slog through.
