The Adafruit “engineering quotes” database

We are pleased to announce the Adafruit “engineering quotes” database!

What is it?

The Adafruit “engineering quotes” database will eventually be the largest and best collection of quotes about engineering (with some science mixed in) in the world. Over time we will allow anyone to contribute quotes wiki-style, but for now you can just use our contact form. With all your help we think this will be a fun resource to get inspired by and to contribute to.

Pt 10945
Contact form is located here.

How does it work?

For now we’re slowly adding quotes, each day or so (we only have a handful now). You can visit the page, subscribe to the RSS feed or just follow us on twitter, the quotes appear in all of these places in addition to being on the lower left side of the site at all times. This will also be a data-source for some future projects of ours, stay tuned – we think you’ll love it 🙂

Why are we doing this?

We can answer the “why” with one of our favorite quotes – “We are what we celebrate” –Dean Kamen (Added on:2011-04-13)

Enjoy! A feel free to post up your favorite engineering quotes in the comment of this post too!

  1. Awesome! Any project that boosts the profile of engineers and engineering in general is OK with me.

  2. I particularly like this one:
    “Harrisberger’s Fourth Law of the Lab: Experience is directly proportional to the amount of equipment ruined.”

    From http://www.dancingdogdesigns.com/humor/laws.html

  3. One of my favorites-
    “Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius — and a lot of courage — to move in the opposite direction.”
    Albert Einstein
