Hi Heimo,

I would also be interested into either listing as well as giving 
talks about methodologies, especially agile ones. I'm currently
deep into this area of thinking, and it connects to my other
"real world" activities (systemical coaching and consulting
for IT personell) as well as the talk I did at the first 
EPC (does the Python way of programming influence the way the 
programmer approaches general problem solving).

Kind Regards,
Andrew Smart
