That same "good foundation of knowledge" applies regardless of what trade a person persues in life, and becomes more important as the stakes go up. Commercial jet pilots who "fly by wire" may only spin the heavy metal they're flying in a computer simulator, but they started by learning how to spin Cessna 150s in real time.
It was a very enjoyable "blog" to listen to.
(I wonder what "blog" is an acronym for?)
