Ron Jeffries: It came to pass that in those days, Kent Beck said that when he defined XP, he took some good practices and turned the dials up to eleven (WikiWikiWeb:GoesToEleven). Looking at the Agile Manifesto, it seems to me and to Chet Hendrickson that folks often don't even turn the dials up to seven...

John Ohno: Small computing, artisanal computing. A computer is both an expression of our worldview (i.e., an art-work) and an extension of our mental space (like a journal, mood-board, scrapbook, sketchpad, or face).
