Engineering versus Science, Anecdote versus Evidence ... [Was:Designing an experiment to gather evidence on approaches to designing webservices]

> I'd suggest software design is closer to engineering than science

Stated differently, shouldn't we endeavor to approach engineering problems as scientists?


P.S. Fascinating discussion!
