Parkinson’s law of Triviality – Bikeshedding.

Read related formulations on Parkinsons law here, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parkinson’s_law_of_triviality

 

Bike Shedding: From Wiki, The word originates in Berkeley Software Distribution culture and implies technical disputes over minor, marginal issues conducted while more important ones are being overlooked. The implied image is of people arguing over what color to paint the bicycle shed while the house is not finished. Comes from Parkinsons Law of Triviality.
