BBC’s 15 Web Principles

I’m a Web developer/manager by day (and sometimes by night). These principles from the BBC’s 2.0 project bring the power and responsibility (thanks, Spider-Man’s Uncle Ben) of the Web into stark relief.

Three of my favorites are back-to-back-to-back:

4. Fall forward, fast: make many small bets, iterate wildly, back successes, kill failures, fast.

5. Treat the entire web as a creative canvas: don’t restrict your creativity to your own site.

6. The web is a conversation. Join in: Adopt a relaxed, conversational tone. Admit your mistakes.

Though they’re aimed at Web development, they’re good principles for life. Just substitute “life” for “the web.”
