>Since Hawkes always has an idiological point, may I ask what it is,

It may be an ideological point, but it is also reminiscent of a very
common behavior, one I've engaged in myself-it's called a WAP (work
avoidance procedure): the more time you spend discussing the nature of
your tools, the less time you spend actually using them.  Questioning
the legitimacy of the tool (or even better, its actual existence), is a
very effective WAP. Thus, Mr. Hawkes may be striking a blow for
knowledge workers everywhere.
