Principles for the new label

I sure do pursue lots of goals – but this new label is meant to target only a few of them.
New label? Which new label?

1. Make personal computing personal again

<explanation follows>

2. Software should work without interference with the base system

<explanation follows>

2.1. It should not need to be “installed”

<explanation follows>

2.2. It should (be able to) work offline

<explanation follows>

2.3. It should not need administrative rights

<explanation follows>

3. Prefer store-and-forward concepts over online connections

<explanation follows>

4. Concentrate on one capability per tool

<explanation follows>

5. Honor Postel’s law

<explanation follows>

6. Scratch my own itch & eat my own dogfood

<explanation follows>

I’m still working on the wording for # 2. I’d like to phrase the things in positive terms.

Is this an enterprisey thing to do? Stating the principles? Or the believes?

I don’t think so – and if they become enterprisey in my own view I can always adapt. For example by deleting them.
