The vacuum of enthusiasm

Alexandra Lange urges us to "be meaner." This article on Design Observer about design blogs is at least partially accurate, and I've been thinking the same myself lately. Essentially, the author argues that most design blogs just enthusiastically point out pretty things for people to buy, but rarely talk about the critical, more negative side of things. She also points out a lack of historical context and true experience (i.e., most posts are based upon the viewing of a 2D image on the internet).
