Someone once asked us, "Can the principles of Sunzi's be transformed to an algorithm?"
We replied with a hearty "yes."
At that moment, we were quite sure about our response due to the premise that there was an obvious process model to operate from.

In the information economy, one cannot consider to be an expert if he (or she) does not have a pragmatic model and an algorithm to operate from.
A note to some of the pseudo Sunzi experts, one cannot define the algorithm, if he (or she) does not have the exact work flow, the data structure and the tables that support the entire model.
Operating on one grand principle is not going to cut it on the long run.
Regardless of the illogical "want" to conquering the opposition without any effort. In life, there are circumstances where one must get their hands dirty.
More to come.
