Re: Techniques Are Boring

Lists of techniques provide another kind of framework: a more easily accessible one, perhaps. I suppose I'd agree with most commenters that it's also a more limited framework, but there's a reason why "people run around learning" lists of techniques. I think it's a developmental stage that most of us go through, unless you've got a very strict teacher who refuses to let you play that game (and that would be very hard to enforce), and like all developmental stages, it has its uses: some good comes out of it.
