Some of this hits home for me:

TYPE ONE ERRORS are classified as errors/mistakes on a site which will either cost you or the client a lot of time, money, or energy to replace, redo, or clear out of a system if installed incorrectly.

There are very few TYPE ONE ERRORS in permaculture design – and to be more accurate – there are very few TYPE ONE ERRORS in permaculture implementation. As designers, consultants, practitioners, and installers we must know what these potential problems are, how to avoid them, and what to do about them if they arise.

I make mistakes all the time, but I never heard of a Type 1 error. This is not the same as Diabetes is it?

I appreciate the author including 'joy' as one of the design elements!

It should be basic!

Type 1 errors. I am sending two computers a lap top and a new desktop off for repairs. A classic Type 1 error --errors/mistakes that cost a lot of money, time, and my sanity!

I have several busted computers and am a type 1 diabetic.

Not sure how to tell the trees that they are in error though.
