I still think my old Nine Rules for Good Technology is the best guide for making technology decisions. The contrast to that approach, though, is this guide. What's the difference? This guide is thoroughly entrenched in existing practice - your selection of technology will be directly based on what you already do and what you already know (or think you know). Anything else - like, say, science - is merely "the lens" through which you make your decision. My Nine Rules, by contrast, focus on selecting technologies according to their affordances, and will result in a certain amount of serendipity and new discovery. As new technologies should.
