Moran’s Principle of Infinite Methods

February 10, 2008 at 1:36 pm by thetheorist

From Daniel Keys Moran’s blog:

There’s more than one right way to perform most tasks … but there are an infinite number of ways to perform a task incorrectly.

DKM is a programmer and science fiction author. While Moran was talking about programming and writing in this post, the principle certainly seems to apply just anything (including running a small business). I’ve never read any of Moran’s work, but was given Emerald Eyes last night, which I’m really looking forward to reading. For those who are curious about his work, much of it is available for free in pdf and rtf form.

Thanks Casey!

The Submit button may not be appearing or working correctly in IE6. I would suggest upgrading to IE7 or Firefox 2 for full functionality (I'm still looking for a solution to this if anyone knows one).

    Welcome and enjoy. Nice to see the cover art from that one. I’ve never seen it. The Long Run’s cover was a lot cooler, however.
