an interesting article on the relationship between venture
capitalists, engineers, and the whole development process, can be
found at the premiere electrical engineering society's IEEE website:

along with some mildly interesting commentary at slashdot:

http://slashdot.org/articles/01/09/01/0252259.shtml

many working engineers are hip to the inefficiency and illogic of
development under capitalist system (from the non-capitalist point of
view, that is), but few view the system as the reason for that. still
its interesting to see such an article at this time in a politically
centered environment like the IEEE. perhaps their way of getting
bigger dollars for their engineers???
