John Brockman has asked his Edgy band of scientists, futurists, writers, and philosophers about
some bit of wisdom, some rule of nature, some law-like pattern, either grand or small, that you’ve noticed in the universe that might as well be named after you, like those of Newton, Moore, or Murphy — via kottke.org
Diffrient‘s Law: Thelawsof nature are more like habits.
Sheldrake‘s Principle: The improvements derived from technological advances have an equal and opposite effect on culture and the environment magnified by time and scale.
Anderson‘s Second Law: A scientist who can speak without jargon is either an idiot or a genius.
Raymond‘s Law of Software: Given a sufficiently large number of eyeballs, all bugs are shallow.
Godwin‘s Law: As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one.
