It's the law!

BoingBoing's fulla gems today. Here's one:

Laws from interesting people:

Edge.org has asked a bunch of interesting people to formulate bits of wisdom phrased as "laws" -- they're quite good.

Morgan's Second Law: To a first approximation all appointments are canceled.

Brand's Pace Law: In haste, mistakes cascade. With deliberation, mistakes instruct.

Sterling's Corollary to Clarke's Law: Any sufficiently advanced garbage is indistinguishable from magic.

And one more (my probable favorite) from among the many::

Minksy's Second Law: Don't just do something. Stand there.
