So obviously it takes a good while to attain the status of an engineer and even longer to get significant resources at hand to realize ideas that aren’t exactly cheap to implement.
Having a whole lot of concepts that one would like to test and realize if viable, it’s a frustration to know that by one’s own effort alone they are far away. Essentially I would like to present concepts to actual engineers who could have them realized before I have my own engineering status - it’s not just me that might benefit if certain new things were brought materially into the audio world, everyone wants benefits as soon as possible, naturally.
Now I might think, do I care about credit or overall progress? The latter more so…
And about the concept of an “engineer status”, I don’t personally view it as binary. I certainly will one day consider myself one, but no, I won’t have an official educational merit and I guess that would mean I won’t be working for any company unless they would hire through knowledge that I could simply present without any wax-stamped papers involved!
Please give some thoughts and guidance to the aforementioned approach. A self-taught way for an inventor to get things eventually realized with an external entity’s money and resources, shortly put.
(Now, this isn’t all adamant, life changes but this is how I currently view the path)
