Good point, TJ. Perhaps Boeing provides an example of the shortcomings of collaboration.

To clarify; sans (earlier) cynicism:  To motivate collaboration among creative & talented people, rewards from successes must be equably distributed, other-wise the word is: exploitation.

Yes, naps can be a help, Liz. Edison used to claim that by napping with his head on Watt's Dictionay of Chemistry, he absorbed the intricacies of chemistry.

Maybe a trifle cynical, profgroove, I could find a lot of engineers who would heartily agree with that definition.

While at Iowa State University, it was common for me to doz off when studying often with my head on notes or open books and notes on my chest. It seemed like it would sink in during the nap. Maybe it just helps the brain tuck it back in recoverable memory or facilitates some form of knowledge osmosis. Something had to work to generate five 4.0 quarters of the twelve I spent there as an undergrad.
