A Quote for Robert (at Agile 2005)

Robert left a note for me, I figure I can return the favor =) A great quote regarding software development:

The most deadly thing in software is the concept, which almost universally seems to be followed, that you are going to specify what you are going to do, and then do it. And that is where most of our troubles come from. The projects that are called successful, have met their specifications. But those specifications were based upon the designers' ignorance before they started the job.

A beer (or other beverage of choice) next time I see you to whomever can first properly attribute the quote, and when it was made =)
