Ten Commands, and then some

As promised at the end of Program or Be Programmed, I am providing a space for people to suggest Commands of their own after reading reading the book.

The Commands are not commandments, meant as orders from God to a population, but rather ways of taking command of any of the biases of digital media. The way to take command of digital media’s asynchronous bias, for example, is not to be “always on.”

Here are the ten from the book. I’ll add some of the other contenders shortly, as well as brief explanations of these biases and commands.

I. TIME 
    Do Not Be Always On
II. PLACE
    Live in Person
III. CHOICE
    You May Always Choose None of the Above
IV. COMPLEXITY
    You Are Never Completely Right
V. SCALE
    One Size Does Not Fit All
VI. IDENTITY
    Be Yourself
VII. SOCIAL
    Do Not Sell Your Friends
VIII. FACT
    Tell the Truth
IX. OPENNESS
    Share, Don’t Steal
X. PURPOSE
    Program or Be Programmed
