  Scientist - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A scientist is a person who is an expert in at least one area of science and who uses the scientific method to research that area.
Upon the request of the poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge in 1833, William Whewell invented the English word "scientist"; before this, the only terms in use were "natural philosopher" and "man of science".
Yet the class of people called "scientists" includes theorists who never do experiments, and even pure experimentalists often employ mathematics and deduction to arrive at their conclusions.

 Hopeton "Overton" Brown (Scientist) (1960 - )
Scientist, born Overton Browne in Kingston, Jamaica, 1960 (and also known as Hopeton Browne), was a protégé of King Tubby, one of the originators of dub music.
Apparently Scientist would beaver away in the studio at all hours of the night then bring his dubs to the maestro the next day for comment and Tubby would generally reply that the work was weak, that his apprentice still had much to learn.
The proof is in the listening, with Scientist dubbing up a storm on these cuts laid down over 20 years ago by the Soul Syndicate and the Roots Radics on Don Mais' Roots Tradition imprint.

 New Scientist Breaking News - Senses-crossover makes for tasty music
The musician, known as ES, is a synaesthete, a person who involuntarily experiences a crossing over of the senses for certain types of stimuli.
In tests where different tastes such as salty, sweet, cream and even low fat cream, were placed on the musician's tongue she was able to identify the correct interval faster than five musician non-synaesthetes.
It is difficult to tell whether synaesthesia was the driving force for ES becoming a musician because she started when she was just five.

 Electronic Music -- Hugh LeCaine
Father of electronic music in Canada; scientist, composer, inventor, painter; add to this teacher, lecturer, consultant, photographer, horticulturist and, last but not least, humanist - and a portrait of the late shy and private Hugh LeCaine emerges.
LeCaine's answer was the construction of an extremely sensitive instrument which, unlike other keyboard instruments, could slur and slide from note to note, producing continuously variable sounds with an additional capacity for making constant tone, color and pitch adjustments.
Musicians, who have played it maintain that its best feature is the way a note can be made louder by pressing a key harder or to waiver with a sideward movement of the finger; and it is adaptable to every kind of music.

This rate of change in the rings is about 10 times as rapid as that inferred from their physical features.

To computer scientist Danny Hillis, people seem to have more of such a thing than, say, single cell organisms, and it is natural to wonder if perhaps there will someday be some new creatures with even more of it than is found in people.
It's also, let's admit it, impossible for a computer scientist not to be flattered by works which place what is essentially a form of algorithmic computation at the center of reality, and these thinkers tend to be confident and crisp and to occasionally have new and good ideas.
