I see my job as keeping things going by resisting attempts to structure and set things in stone. But I can’t be everywhere especially as we grow and do things in other places and at other times. So I think it’s time to say something about what’s tuttle and what’s not. I’d like to keep talking about these until we get them right but I think these two are the most important.
1. Whenever two or more are gathered in the name of Harry, the spirit of Tuttle will be with you. This means that even if only one other person turns up on a Friday, we’re still quorate *and* if you want to tuttle, all you need is one other similarly minded underground heating engineer.
2. Do as you would be done by. Tuttle is about sharing what you know and who you know. This means give as much as you’d like to get. Don’t take the piss. People try. They think we don’t notice, but we’ve all seen them. It doesn’t work for long. Newcomers should remember that although some of us may look and sound like hippy-dippy caring-sharing kumbaya singers, we were hacking stuff together while you were still getting high on a can of irn-bru and the latest episode of Thundercats. This is what Harry does to people who take the piss.
But also, Russell found these rules and I think they’d serve us pretty well until we started having punch-ups about who’s an adult.
