In a fit I wrote a credo for my company. I mostly did it because I was reading _Built to Last_ and I was thinking that the company needed an ethical foundation. I also think it helps to have a guideline for expected behaviour.
Then again it was 2am and I may have just been too sleep deprived to think clearly. In any case I passed it along to the president of the company. He seems to like it. I guess I'll see how it turns out.
