Praise Junkies?

Tom Hoffman's Google Reader shared items brought me to this NYTimes article. It's important stuff. I'd like to think that we are a bit more cautious about dishing out praise on this side of the pond, but we still seem to spend a lot of time praising achievement rather than effort. This is what the article condemns. Read it, then tell me what you think :)
