The problem is that we even have a concept of "Web" programming. There should be no such thing. It reminds me of the early 90's when we had Multimedia programs - those that could access a CD-ROM. It doesn't matter where you are running, where you data is, and where your output is. We need ALL of our programming languages to be updated to realize this. We don't write to files, we write to streams. Data is always just written to a store. The fact that the local store synchronizes with the server store is a library issue. We should be able to create "Web" programs with the same tools that we write all programs.

Scrum Master: OK, let's go around the room and do our stand-up for they day. We've got a week or two to straighten this thing out.

Mary: Ummm...I'm trying not to kill myself today, hopefully no one will notice if I spend the day in the rest room.

Tan: Well, I started my review of the backround 3rd-party insurance-module interfaces. So far, mock objects are in place. I'm thinking we should implement something?

Bob: I'm working on name-tags, the holiday schedule, and the Submit button.

Assan: I'm new.

Scrum Master: OK, does anyone have any blocking issues for today?

Bob: Uh, I'm not (air-quotes) technically a programmer, but I can make some killer PowerPoints.

Tan: Right now, I just have these fan-fold printouts of the code. Also, I've never done COBOL before. Oh, and can I get a computer?

If you fail to plan, plan to fail.

Working...
