Give me a really tough problem that’s just beyond the state of the art, and give me a whole bunch of users beating on me to get it done…You have a scientific basis, but when you don’t have the science, you put in some bugger factors, some safety factors, and so forth and you get smart enough, and you get the job done anyhow, right?

  1. Do you always work harder when someone’s beating on you? Or do you simply rebel?

  2. I think the approach only works if you already care about what you’re doing in the first place.
