  2. @allspaw Are you sure?! That seems weirdly prescriptive to me and I'm pretty sure I rely on many of my engineer friends to be creative...

  8. @moleitau @migurski @allspaw My only point here is it seems weird to declare the goal of an engineer should be to avoid original thought

  9. @tomcoates @moleitau @migurski @allspaw “as few as possible” allows for one or two. It’s 40 in a single project that’s a bad idea.
