Viele Erfinder schließen sich Rabinows Meinung an, daß Mängel die treibende Kraft für Änderungen sind. Lawrence Kamm, der sein Buch Successful Engineering Jacob Rabinow widmete («mein Chef, Lehrer, enger Freund und strengster Kritiker»), rät dem jungen Ingenieur, «ständig die Konstruktionen in deiner Umgebung zu studieren. Warum wurden sie so und nicht anders entworfen? Was ist falsch an ihnen?

Inventars at Work, so lautet der Titel einer Sammlung von Interviews, die mit sechzehn bedeutenden amerikanischen Erfindern durchgeführt wurden, und die stichprobenartig den unterschiedlichen schulischen Werdegang aufzeichnen, vom High-School-Abschluß bis zum Doktortitel, den Erfinder vorzeigen können. Auf jeden berühmten Erfinder, der anstatt aufs College zur Arbeit gehen mußte, kommt einer, der eine Eliteuniversität im Osten der USA besuchen konnte.

Wir schleifen diese erhabenen Stellen ab und versuchen, sie wieder dem Druckstock anzupassen. Das Typenbild ist eben, wenn es vollkommen auf den Druckstock paßt, so daß keine erhabenen Stellen mehr hervorstehen.
