What are we going to do in life if we can’t use our head and mix our technical knowledge with our ideas? Or, is it that we don’t “think” anymore? Yesterday, I was discussing a similar topic with my good friend CEan – Kidakaka. He popped a simple question: “How many of us really get into engineering because we want to build something...
