Apple When I started this whole Sunday Eve Column thing, I was painfully aware I was basically doing the same thing as a certain other individual who somehow insists on using the first letter of his middle name (maybe because he thinks it makes him look cool?). I believe that person only writes his columns to make money. And that's just sad.

> Do we make wild and unsubstantiated claims with the only goal being money? No. We don't get paid around here, so there is no financial incentive to write provocative stuff.

I won't accuse you of these (yet, at least, see below ;) , but there are, of course, other things besides money that you can attempt to gain by writing provocative stuff. Like fame (think how often Dvorak is mentioned, even if no one likes his stuff) or power (think how many people listen to Dvorak, even when he's wrong).

Surely, if there's no financial incentive, there must be SOME incentive for you to write/link articles here. So what is it? ;)

I'ma make it my job. If all goes according to plan I'll be doing my Master in Journalism (when I'm done with my current Bachelor). I do OSNews because I like to do it, and because it takes the mind away from other things.

And when I'm not in the mood to work on OSN, I still do it because I comitted myself to it. And real men (and women) don't break promises.
