Hi Shamil

Surprisingly? No maybe not. Common sense and decent behaviour have existed since man got civilized.

I'll make a note on that book. Thanks!

 Hi Gustav --

"The Mythical Man-Month: Essays on Software Engineering, Anniversary Edition (2nd Edition)" by Frederick P. Brooks Jr.
http://www.amazon.com/The-Mythical-Man-Month-Engineering-Anniversary/dp/0201835959 is a "must read" IMO. Recommended.

> I share your skepticism.
Well, shall we better call it "common sense realism"? :) -  "If there are certain principles, as I think there are, which the constitution of our nature leads us to believe, and which we are under a necessity to take for granted in the common concerns of life, without being able to give a reason for them — these are what we call the principles of common sense; and what is manifestly contrary to them, is what we call absurd."  ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scottish_Common_Sense_Realism )

Surprisingly(?) the above statement seems to have roots in Romans (1:20) ( http://www.usccb.org/bible/romans/1:20 )  (The relation of "Governing is in detail(s)" idiom and Romans(1:20) is noted also here  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God_is_in_the_detail  where I have got first it from.)
