Ah, but you misunderstand where I want to start with anarchy and move from there -- not in the project (where some chaos can be useful), but the flexibility of the tools. In spite of having some appreciation for agile development methods, I still like a written document with functional requirements, data models, risk assessment, etc, even if not a dictionary-sized SRS (system requirements specification). So you are preaching to the choir, even if I'm not wearing the requisite choir robe. Cheers! --dawn Received on Tue Feb 21 2006 - 11:44:40 CST
