Everyone needs a cryptic slogan

I’ve been talking to Jason and Jonathan, the post-Agile guys, about post-Agile. I don’t get it, but that’s OK. What it made me realize is that a properly obscure name for the kind of software development I want to do is…


It is supposed to connote:

  • Back to giddy optimism!

  • Technology! Shiny!

  • Don’t fret about “Them”

  • Goals and preferences over rules

  • We’re all in this together

Perhaps there will be t-shirts and posters by Agile2008.

P.S. I use the term “anarcho-syndicalism” pretty loosely. Don’t forget the two lines of qualifiers.
