Some accumulated stuff I want to get out of the system.
A hilarious rant on agile development (link from the blog of Federico Mena-Quintero). It's not much more than a rant, however.
Thoughts on testing, unfortunately a bit long. When Should a Test be Automated. Not always. Blindly writing unit tests for everything is not necessarily the right thing to do. Classic Testing Mistakes.
Joel Spolsky on barriers to switching, when you want people to switch from what they currently got.
Out of context: computer systems that learn from, and adapt to, context. A paper that discusses (on a high level) how to improve on the lack of intelligence in software. Inspiring.
And finally, a quick one, the problem with blogging.
