We know that Agile Programming has arrived when the pointy haired boss has heard of it.
On a more techie note, I was reading through some papers for the second time. I am in the process of creating Mock Objects to help me automate my testing. It again reiterates my belief that the most beautiful things are generally the simplest. A good short introduction read would be http://www.pragmaticprogrammer.com/articles/may_02_mock.pdf from Dave and Andy (the PPs).
An even better paper is mentioned on my links list to the left.
