I would suggest that hackers and engineers need not be mutually exclusive. One could assume either role, depending on the needs of the situation.

True, for any given project you need some of both. The whole post made so much sense when I was dealing in the abstract, but when I got to the end and had to tie it to development, I realized I had painted myself into a corner. I'll go back and clarify.


EDIT: I expanded the last paragraph to clarify that point. I think it makes more sense now.
