How can I be a scientist if I HATE writing papers (not writing, but papers) and journals and our whole knowledge dissemination system?

@scisus If you figure it out, please let me know.

I get along by the grace of coauthors; we instinctively trade off the worst parts of dealing with journals so that the burden to any one of us is minimized. It also helps that we work in a field where pre-publication online posting has been the norm for 25+ years. We can put things on the arXiv that don't have all the personality ground out of them for journals.
