Suuuuper delayed issue today. My apologies. Thought I could send it out this morning, but didn't have time before having to go to the airport.
I wanted to address some comments I got from a reader for yesterday's intro.
>> "we stand on the shoulder's of giants"
> I believe this saying isn't really talking about cooperation (contemporary, at least), but about the people before, our teachers, mentors and other researchers that advance the knowledge of our civilization. I feel like using it in this context kinda misses the point :D
I'm aware that this saying means current work is only possible thanks to previous work, and rereading the intro, I agree, it's weird to use it here. At the time, I might've been thinking about it more in terms of people doing the current work cooperating with people who did the previous work.
> "the better of an engineer you are, the less engineering you actually end up doing"
>> This only means that company cannot properly handle its people!
No, I don't think this is true. Good engineers end up writing processes for other engineers to follow and do. That requires very little actually engineering, and mostly just writing.
Anyway, here's the issue!
