Back in '77 I worked with Steve Bourne on /bin/sh (little known fact: like awk, sh was named for its inventors, 'S' for Steve and 'H' for Humbert) and was responsible for the 'done' keyword. Following that I alternately pursued computer programming, field anthropology, and general philology; I currently work for an organization that has no name in the field of complex system obfuscation.

You know that Steel wrote that just to avoid more pressing work facing him? Me, I tend to vacuum.

"What is considered scientific best-practice?" Since IQ is not a scientifically useful measure, the question is somewhat ill-posed.
