Aside from being the "technique du jour", Agile seems to incorporate many ideas. I like hearing those ideas to look for good ones.
Well, maybe nothing. I've noticed that the Agile guys that I've worked with are fairly dogmatic. Really, to me, they are just like the waterfall guys only with a different set of beliefs. I don't blame Agile. But how does one contribute to those who already know that they know?
I worked at NeXT computer. We were dedicated to changing the world. It wasn't Agile, but it should be. In hindsight, the innovation there was pretty amazing. At technical people, we are surrounded by the results of it now.
Not really an agile person, but always interested in getting a better understanding of the basic concepts...
