In praise of incompetence

Why is it no one has anything nice to say about incompetence?

Bertrand Russell praises idleness, Adam Bellow praises nepotism, free-market economists praise greed... those working on third-world development even praise corruptive greed. Incompetence seems to be the one vice -- it doesn't even have the dignity of vicehood -- that no one anywhere appears to like.

Below is my homage to the unpracticed, the ignorant, the careless, the naive. I made it a little more than a year ago without knowing the first thing about photoshop; I had no idea what the tools were or how to manipulate them properly -- and you know what, I kinda like it.
