The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Originally, "rule of thumb" was a technical standard of sorts.
In 1150, King David the First of Scotland decreed that the

for anything anyone was trying to build.
