I think Mr Dash misses one of the big rules. The internet loves a list🙂
This is a mix of the fun, serious and very true. I actually think it is amongst the bonus rules where the real gem is hiding “Never argue against logic with emotion, or against emotion using logic.”
There is some quote about ‘being judged by the quality of your enemies’ – maybe from Wilde? Anyway it seems like more and more Mozilla is upsetting the right people. This latest attack from a group of online advertisers about the ‘do not track’ options in Firefox is a prime example of that. In recent years Mozilla have (it seems to me) started to move from an open source company mainly focused on preventing a browser monopoly to something much more interesting – they have becoming a leader in the wider fight for an open web and that is why I support them.
This was a great post from Tim Lloyd and I saw him expand on it a bit at a talk this week as well. I agree strongly with the majority of it – apart from the final point as I still believe there is room for specialists as long as they are aware of the wider landscape around them.
Tim is very much a digital **communications** person. Whenever I speak to him or read his posts I realise how much I still have to learn about doing that aspect well and not getting too caught up in the digital of it all.
