What do you hope to get out of Silicon Valley ALN?

Aside from being the "technique du jour", Agile seems to incorporate many ideas. I like hearing those ideas to look for good ones.

What talent, experience and perspective are you willing to contribute to Silicon Valley ALN?

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?

Who are your greatest lean-agile mentors and gurus?

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.

Introduction

Not really an agile person, but always interested in getting a better understanding of the basic concepts...
