matt jones on a collaborative mapping excercise involving coin tosses.
It worked fine until they got near the beach.
Interesting that he mentions that 'rules are good because they help you work out what you want to do by breaking them'.
It's a bit like my 'making a decision by tossing a coin' - you know instantly if the coin has made the 'wrong' decision, because you get a powerful negative reaction to the outcome.
Which suddenly made me think... didn't I steal that from Terry Pratchett?
Are all of the great BBC technorati actually just recycling ideas from hack comedy scifi?
