Here’s an old quote that’s worth repeating from time to time:
People like me need to do things in order to understand. That’s why I build systems. That’s why I tinker. That’s why I read so much.
(Jim Gray, IEEE Distributed Systems Online 2004)
Short story: research is not about spending time in the library. Research is about tinkering.
