Klineman on Felten

“An awful lot of invention happens because of people messing around with stuff,” [Felten] says. “If you read a textbook about science or engineering, it presents a view that everything advanced in a fairly logical way from the beginning. It leaves out the tremendous amount of exploration, blind alleys, and messing around that actually got you there.”

Jeff Klineman (freelancer and prince among men) has an article about Ed Felten for the Princeton Alumni Weekly. You should read it.
