Technologist Manifesto…, or Things Everyone in IT Should Know

Writing about web page http://blogs.ittoolbox.com/bi/confessions/archives/007715.asp

If you're in IT, take a read of the whole thing…in brief though:

  • Bad Technology is Your Fault
  • Users aren't Born Stupid, You Train Them to be That Way
  • You want to make your system easier to use than to not use.
  • If the Solution Seems Too Simple, Use It
  • Eliminate Jobs – Everywhere
  • Make People Better
  • Keep a Junior Nearby
  • Understand the Good of "Good Enough"
  • Respect the Database for What it is
  • The 3-by Rule

  1. Very good. But:

    Respect the Database for What it is

    Should surely just be

    "Respect the Database" :-)

  2. "Eliminate Jobs" — I don't think Apple fans would go along with that.
