TRIZ-journal does not keep pace with fashion.

40 principles in software engineering [1]! 40 principles in management [2] ! All these topics have already set everyone's teeth on edge. Who needs them anymore ? They are the topics of the past, of the reckless 1990s. 9/11 changed everything. Books and articles on "40 principles of waging war on terrorism", or "40 principles in homeland security", or at least "40 principles for security guards" would have been much more fashionable. Darrell Mann et al. do not feel the market. They are hopelessly outdated. Not surprisingly, therefore, that they are going out of business.

Is it not so, Darrell Mann ?
