Lego or Negotiation

James Noble's keynote at QCon this morning. Well done performance on two theories of software around in 1968. The dominant one being software as building lego cathedrals. The other being software as accumulating small, negotiated victories. This is the one we've got and need to embrace. Hopefully there's video of the talk.

I guess this link[1] can't hurt as you were very low on the details and the subject seemed interesting.

Something to download (PDF/video) would be nice in the future.
