In his Linux Journal post today, Ten ideas about Ideas, Doc said he expected others to improve his list.
My first change was to eliminate some repetition, cutting the list to five. Next, I transformed the statements into the affirmative.
I think this improvement makes a better beginning of a mini-manifesto.
- Ideas belong to everyone.
- Ideas are valuable when others put them to use.
- Ideas are powerful when others improve them.
- Ideas grow by participation.
- Ideas have unexpected results.
