Top Definition
The process of modifying things to find out what they do without fully understanding the consequences of such actions. Driven by a strong sense of curiosity without a strong knowledge base. Usually performed by the most unqualified people in production environments. It can be as simple as flicking a switch, or performing computer modifications. Consequences are usually significant, such as lost revenue, or even the loss of life.
