Principle needed

The content that contained the link to Principle needed could really use a good write-up explaining the principle.

Can you think of one?

A good write-up for a principle is:

  • Brief - one or two paragraphs.
  • Focused - be sure it is a single principle and not one or more principles in a collection. If it is the latter, perhaps it is really belongs in Great stories to tell?
  • General - de-couple the principle from the domain of origin. Many of the principles come from the open source software movement, so must be explained in a way that de-couples it from software and technology to allow the audience to understand it for their own domains. For this reason, the principle should be anonymous rather than about a specific domain or organization.
