EB>... we do know how to get a business's data into a 
manageable, reliable repository that supports its applications. And 
doing that takes analysis and design and development and verification 
and testing. That is why we call ourselves "engineers".    (02)

Yes, that is what I suspected when saying that you don't appreciate the 
intellectual challenge. Some 100 years ago Hamilton said something like that 
about mathematics. Only he new much more about mathematics.
The only problem then was to arrange what is already known into a system. And 
why not - Newton did that in mechanics, Mendeleev - in chemistry. Do you wonder 
why they could not simply "model knowledge"?    (03)
