…I have a blog.

At long last, Eskimo Bill joins the blogosphere. While y’all are looking into ways to become IT gods, he’ll tell you what it’s like to be a heretic. Under the Agile revolution there’s a subtle evolution — the development world is changing and the old school bureaucrats are going over the waterfall on a raft made of Gantt charts and status reports.

Welcome to the new world order, where the whole point of the development process is not to placate users by minimizing risk, but to help users kick ass by building the software they need.

Don’t criticize what you can’t understand…
Your old road is
Rapidly agin’.
Please get out of the new one
If you can’t lend a hand
For the times they are a-changin’

Without further ado, proceed to Eskimo Bill Says… ‘Cause heaven knows, we could use more heretics.
