One brief thought (as I was also reading about your suggestion that engineers need to be have better liberal arts and business skills) ... the same can be said for the "business suits / managers" ... when was the last time a manager actually wrote a little bit of code such as XHTML, CSS, Python or C++? Let's not forget that it works both ways ... the days of managers not getting their hands dirty and understanding the world that engineers have to live in is finished, just as are the days that engineers can only be engineering (writing code, etc.).

I thought I would share an EMC blog on history of storage ..http://event.on24.com/eventRegistration/EventLobbyServlet?target=lobby.jsp&playerwidth=635&playerheight=476&defaultstream=wm150&onload=launchwebcast&eventid=16760&sessionid=1&key=0720434523FDFA0EA535BAE35F8F1409&eventuserid=4660003
