Innovation in civil engineering


I quoted this from a video I watched in 2021, and promptly forgot where I saw it. I’m pulling it out of the drafts now because its still great. You could apply the same thinking to file systems.

Innovation happens slowly in civil engineering, because the consequences of failure are so high. Gaining confidence in a design has as much to do with engineering theory, as it does to simply seeing how well similar designs have performed in the past.

It could be Practical Engineering?
