Agile Quotes (from Twitter), Fourth Set

Scott Adams (via David Hussman via maiasylba) — Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Design is knowing which ones to keep.

Scott Bellware — That decay that plagues community efforts (agile,, etc) is only inevitable if the community fears principled community organization. With a values statement of code of conduct, a community becomes an *intentional community*. A community with defined values and protocols can afford more diversity than a community that eschews definition for the sake of diversity. A community’s core values necessarily creates a core group. as long as that group doesn’t devolve into a clique, it strengthens the whole. On top of creating definitions that permit a core, the group needs values and protocols to recognize and address cliquishness of the core.
