"Agile" works quite well as long as people don't take it too seriously and adapt it to their needs. It gets culty when you have a Scrum Master who has the Big Holy Book Of Scrum and if things are done differently you are a blasphemer and heretic.
I think somebody realised that incremental chunks of development with lots of user feedback is actually a good thing, and all the buzzword nonsense was added to sell it to management without them realising what was really going on.

I like how Jelly Bellys are on the high turnout Democrat side, when Ronald Reagan was a famous Jelly Belly enthusiast.

He was also hated by many Jelly Belly purists, because instead of eating them one at a time, he'd toss a handful in his mouth and mix all the flavors you monster

Still, that doesn't justify shooting him.

Yes, they happen a lot more frequently than people think, but a lot of them occur over oceans or uninhabited regions, or just aren't very dramatic. In the UK, for example, there are partial eclipses visible every 3-5 years, but there won't be a total eclipse until 2090.

Awesome thanks. Some really interesting stuff in there. Crazy how long there was without...a lot happening. Some of the really early stuff is super interesting, really obvious where the whole 'cradle of human civilization" thing comes from. Loads going on at the end of the med for a looooong time.

I read an article once about a cave painting that had been dated to something like 25,000 years ago. There was another, later painting partly overlaid on it, which was in pretty much the same style and composed of the same sort of pigments. That one was dated to about 20,000 years ago. It's so strange to think that humanity did pretty much nothing at all for thousands of years - art, technology, society barely changed at all. Then in the last few thousand years and mostly the last couple of centuries - Boom!

How well will our floppy disks, CDs, USB drives, and hard disk drives record our history? How long will celluloid film, magnetic tape, and paper documents last? In 10,000 years, what we do today will be a mystery. Some history from the last 100 years is already lost because the medium on which it was stored is unreadable.
Just film history, every time a new consumer format is developed, not all material gets up-converted or re-released. If you think working VCRs are hard to find, try a BetaMax player.



Where's the microfiche, punched paper tape and cards?
