social skills ... are to blame?

Many times we can associate poor social skills with engineers, I wonder if this is a variable which could also be associated with the bad behavior that makes an engineer do a crime. 

What surprises us a little bit about engineers doing bad things is that education is many times the way to live a better live and thus, to not fall in this eerie statistics, howvever, there are always anomalies in the measures... right?

Taken as a group, there will be the same percentage of engineers who are criminals as any other group. There are some bizarre ones here though.

>Since when have seismic engineers been able to predict earthquakes?

Yes, that's a weird one. Perhaps they were overconfident in their assurances. I'd lay as much or more blame then on the officials who were stupid enough to believe them.

Crime and humane nature

Crime and humane nature is universal. The degree of crime or white collar crime changes from time to time and place to place. But I have often observed more subtle from of prevarication and that tantamounts to white collar crime of first or second degree. However, engineers rationlize it to their liking.

This is also true for lawyers, management staffs and doctors.

I can here Col. Kurtz of Apocalyse Now saying, "Diapers...the genius of that!"

This was a fascinating read. Thanks Chuck. Man, the eyes of some of these purps make my skin crawl!

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
