Engineers are Tinkerers

If you don’t, you need to listen to StarTalk Radio which is normally hosted by Neil deGrasse Tyson. On an episode around 07/29/2016, Bill Nye was speaking on engineers:

“What you want in engineering is a tinkerer, one who tinks…for example, Mike Mann the guy who developed the first version of the hockey stick graph, he as a kid was a tinkerer he was constantly messing around with computer programs…”

I guess as a Maker I’m part Engineer. I’m a tinkerer. A Making Engineering Tinkerer. MET.
