Keeping engineers off the streets

"Engineers tend to develop tools for the pleasure of developing tools, not to induce nature to reveal its secrets. It so happens that some of these tools brings us more knowledge; because of the silent evidence, we forget to consider tools that acomplished nothing but keeping engineers off the streets."

from The Black Swan by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
