Principles Mound

The principles mound is headed by the august bodies of the W3C (the the MIT Great Dome) and the Ietf (the greybeards as greek gods). Singled out are the key principles which lead to the success of the Web: Cool URIs Don't Change, Safety, Jon Postel's law "be conservative in what you send, liberal in what you accept" otherwise known as The Robustness Principle, the IETF mantra "rough consensus and running Code", the separation of content from representation and finally the's famous The Network is Stupid paper.
