Stop saying something is art
Please stop saying that something is an art, when it's not.
Note the following things which ARE art: literature, painting, photography (arguably), sculpture, theater, cinema, music, dance.
Now note that the following, which people report as art (according to a Google search, anyway) are NOT art: leadership, picking a vice-president, programming, RFID implementation, linkbaiting, bug reporting, teaching, closing a deal, counting votes, investing, stock picking, genealogy, e-mail, war, failure, or taking the right stuff to Burning Man.
There is this widespread belief that "art" means something subtle and complex, and that calling something an "art" serves to show how hard it is, versus being a "science". I think the opposite is true, and that this is a blatant disrespect for scientists. Say what you will, but science is the most complex and fruitful enterprise of man. So if there's a word that conveys the most respect and complexity, it must be "science".
If something uses technical methods to re-create values, then call it an "art". If something uses technical methods to attain any other end, then call it a "science". If something makes things prettier, call it "esthetics". But please do not treat the qualifier "art" as a praise.
