Interesting idea Dave. I heard about this method in a FLOSS podcast
( http://twit.tv/floss27 ) where Ward explains how the system evolved
from the discussions they had at the initial design stage of new projects.
But I've never really tried it.

Could be a good way to add some thought to program structure while
learning a new methodology. Assuming people think this could help -
I wasn't at the first 3 sessions so I don't know what type of planning
took place
before the first pilot started banging some code out for the twitter graph &
tic-tac-toe tasks.
