<quote> hacking: 0 < version <= 1.0 engineering: version > 1.0 </quote> nicely put! in the early stages it helps to "hack" at the early versions,people with inter-disciplinary skillsets.

i also think,guess its easier "to manage" engineers. that said - i think its easier for a hacker to manage /steer a bunch of engineers, than for an engineer to lead a bunch of hackers.

at the end of the day, i think a hacker something creates out of nothing. an engineer thereafter tries to keep it afloat without screwing around.
