Of rules and the Weekly Wrapup

Ferris wheel on Instacanv.as

I'm not against all the rules. Rules can be good, especially when they are based on good sense and morals. They keep us from doing dumb stuff and hurting others. Well, at least that's the idea.

But then there are stupid, ridiculous rules. Usually set for personal or business gain.

Take the new Twitter logo and the renewed Twitter Trademark and Content Display Policy. Silly, meaningless rules like this beg for someone to break them over and over again. Why? Because they are silly and meaningless.

Did you know that you shouldn't use your own logos/illustrations as Twitter buttons? Now you know.

Suomeksi (In Finnish): 

Säännöt voivat olla ihan hyvästä. Varsinkin silloin kun ne perustuvat järkeen ja moraaliin. Ne estävät meitä tekemästä tyhmyyksiä ja satuttamasta muita. Ainakin se on ajatus. Mutta sitten on niitä tyhmiä ja järjettömiä sääntöjä. Usein henkilökohtaista hyötyä varten asetettuja. Uusi Twitter logo ja siihen liittyvä ohjeistus on hyvä esimerkki. Nuo säännöt kerjäävät tulla rikotuiksi. Koska ne ovat tyhmiä ja merkityksettömiä. Yllä myös viime viikon bloggaukset listattuna. Etkö halua missata enää mitään? Tykkää Facebookissa niin pysyt kärryillä!
