  • I couldn't see what the difference between good and bad agile was. And I couldn't see what the problem he had with relationships at google had to do with agile.

    So my take on the blog is that he wanted to let off steam about a work-related issue, and the only way he could do it without ruffling too many feathers was build up google as a great place to work because of the freedom and intelligence there before coming down on the people who were forcing him in to a programming practice where he had to work with others in ways he didn't enjoy.

    But I did like his portrayal of agile as a religion. Not that there is anything wrong with religion. I wondered about the same thing at a presentation Audrey did once, not that I understood all the presentation, as it was in Chinese.

    I got the feeling one's commitment to a lighter approach might be based on
    faith or non-rational belief (not that there is anything wrong with faith), in
    the same way as an attachment to your editors, or your OS.

    By the way, isn't this the same guy who fantasized about a school where Larry Wall was teaching that turned out wizards?

    He seems to be an imaginative guy. He was writing about his interest in Japanese cartoons.
