A timeline:

2001------->1990s----------->1980s------>All Times
Agile=Rapid Prototyping=Vapid Prototyping=Chaos

The underlying principle behind the so-called Agile concept is good: deliver
software that works by meeting the requirements established for it. Of
course, those initial requirements aren't requirements but goals. They are
that because they can - and are - changed with each Scrum.

The framework lets programmers envision themselves as international rugby
stars, though.
