Modelers do model, scientists do science

I don't remember exactly how it was phrased, but that was carved on a plaque and put on the wall in a big office at Scripps (one of the top research institutes in the US for oceanography). Since I was trained as a modeler (and a scientist), I decided not to apply to a post doc position there with that group when I was about to get my Ph.D. (a long time ago).

Even though my memory is getting pretty bad these days, I still remember that plaque, especially today after coming out of a seminar. The speaker is a very smart, and successful modeler. He just loves his model a bit too much.
