Agile isn't dead: explains it's healthy and still has much of the world to reach. "Only one of two things will happen to your brilliant idea: It will be misrepresented and misused or it will be ignored – and you don’t get to choose."

I have a copy (although it's sitting in the pod), so I can lend it to you once we have a home again. It is *outstanding*, takes the Nausicaä story levels deeper. The film is the first 1½ of 7 books.

Did you read the manga for Nausicaä? It's one of my favorite works of literature.

I'm glad you like the article, but I should point out that it isn't by me, the author is - I'm just the publisher.

A mandate to deliver a business outcome is very different from a mandate to deliver a certain amount of scope. Scope delivery is easy, relatively speaking. Outcome realization requires real collaboration...

I guess he just never got around to putting in a bio. He was there the whole time, although rather more subdued than usual due to a recent root canal (IIRC).

I'm glad you found it useful, but please note that is the writer responsible for that. I'm just the publisher.

That's a word I need to remember. Not just for software architecture, but for many structures and behaviors of large organizations.

I don't think so. The table isn't a table of updates but a table of queries. It says that if on Mar 15 we ask what Dinsdale's pay was on Feb 25, we return $211. It would be the same answer for an actual date of Feb 15, but I use Feb 25 as that's the day we ran payroll.

There is an excellent article by "Temporal Patterns" Quote: These include questions of the form "what was Martin's address on 1 Jul 1999" and "what did we think Martin's address was on 1 Jul 1999 when we sent him a bill on 12 Aug 1999".

I prefer to not to rename concepts like this. It usually only adds confusion, and buries the contribution of the original people who worked on it.
