Comment Agile What Now? (Score 2, Informative) 145

If you're doing "Agile Projects" or have "Agile Project Managers" you're not doing agile. Agile is a set of PRODUCT methodologies. If you assemble a project, identify scope, get seed funding, kick off, and then decide to delivery you're project "Agile", you've missed the key point of agile: adjust priorities in response to change.

I get why people hate "agile", it's because most people haven't done the real thing.

Why are you such an asshole?

How do you justify the burden you've placed on North American innovation, and the harm that's caused? Can we move past your typical defense of IV based on the ridiculous and yet-to-be-realized anti-mosquito laser system, and discuss the actual harm and actual benefits (if any) provided by IV?

How does it feel to be a pariah?

That's a bit of a backward way to approach it.

Normally, when we make observations that don't line up with our current understanding (e.g. "Where did all this carbon-14 come from?") we look for explanations. The most likely known sources of carbon-14 spike are GRB's and solar flares. Discounting those because the overall event is unlikely, in spite of the evidence, is what scientist dub "stupid".
