So, that cheesy quote from Crafting I think it was, remember it? I just realised it can be put in a far better way. "Technological advance is an inherently iterative process. One does not simply take sand from the beach and produce a Dataprobe. We use crude tools to fashion better tools, and then our better tools to fashion more precise tools, and so on. Each minor refinement is a step in the process, and all of the steps must be taken." Who wants to slap an old-school back?
