Don't read this!

So all the countries of the world have hackers who are plundering the technical materials in companies and ministries of war of all the other countries of the world.

I remember the long past days when I was a young engineer. We loved to do blue sky thinking. I bet young engineers still do love that.

Someone should encourage young engineers to blue sky ideas that won't work but that look like.they would work.

I also would bet that all the engineers who have been around for a while have things in their files that they thought were beautiful ideas, but that were killed by ugly facts. Their ideas just didn't work in fact.

Someone ought to put all those beautiful, unworkable ideas in corporate and government data bases, protected by their best firewalls. Then, when they were hacked, the folk who stole them would go crazy trying to make the unworkable ideas work.
