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. 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 how much planning (and
what type) took place before the first pilot started banging some code
out on the twitter graph & tac-tac-toe tasks.
