The Edge has posed question: What’s Your Law? John Brockman asked members of the scarily smart Edge community to contribute a couple laws that distill some of their accumulated wisdom. I especially like Stewart Brand’s Pace Law:

“In haste, mistakes cascade. With deliberation, mistakes instruct.”

Though Brand’s Asymmetry,

“The past can only be known, not changed. The future can only be changed, not known.”

–also resonates.

There are actually a lot of interesting things there. It’s worth looking at.
