I want to say thank you to Pr. A. Lawrence to publish an article like this. I am a young PhD student, and with my short experience in laboratory, I know that thinking and hard working are not sufficient to be a good scientist. I lake some qualities to be a good player in the little jungle of research (and I was very disenchanted by this dark side of science). But I want to say thank you because now, I know that some scientists think differently. An essay like this gives me hope for my future professional life. Even if some scientists are not in agreement with this essay, it is deserving of thinking about this question.
