Gabriel, this list is awesome!

I’d also add Brook’s Law to the development section.

You don’t seem to mention relative thinking (not sure about the name of the law). I haven’t found a good description but this one comes close to it:

“Humans have an easier time understanding the world by thinking about things in relative terms. These comparisons help us better compartmentalize our thoughts and benchmark our performance. Relative thinking creates order in a seemingly orderless world. But it can be both productive and highly unproductive since, in addition to thinking in relative terms, we also tend to overestimate how good we are at certain things.”

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
