-A few days ago, John Perry Barlow twetted a series of Adult Principles, and I enjoyed reading them. When he was asked where they came from, he said: 
  
-They'​re from a list I assembled for myself on the eve of my 30th birthday. Many years ago. 
-This is the collected set from his twitter feed: 
-
