To a Gamer - Ends Doesnt Justify the Means = High Technical DEBT means.
Sustainable Means (Low or No Tech Debt methods and principles) means I CAN KEEP ROLLING THE DICE - with lower critical failure. (minor setbacks and opportunity costs are acceptable risks).
A gamer with a grasp of statistics realizes that - ethical means - means no critical failure consequence. Then every roll without Critical Failure can move the needle a little bit more to a WIN with every roll.
the Min-maxer who will pursue OPTIMAL goals will pursue Low Tech Debt Actions (Ethical and moral actions) they can Afford to Do - creating as many opportunities to ROLL.
- Getting to Know people.
- Helping out, within their limits
- navigating ethics and doing no harm or minimizing harm.
- Learning and experimenting within our means.
