Hello Toby-

I have been re-reading this whole thread which has been fundamental for me, and I would like to say that :

I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO YOUR BOOK!  ( When hopefully you will set this all out cleanly and neatly? I think it will be a tremendous
contribution for us all)

I agree. Again using science as an analogy, the people who do philosophy of
science--trying to figure out how science works and what it's doing--are
usually not the same people who are actually doing science. Or more
precisely, most scientists don't care one whit about the philosophy behind
it. I'd venture that the same it true here: the majority of practicing
permies want to get their hands dirty, and may be less interested in a
long-winded philosophical discussion (I happen to like both, since ideas
guide practice and practice shapes ideas).
