I like the call to action and the focus on the positive things that altnetter's have done to make a difference already.
I see the traction growing everyday.
You need to get a break. You seem to be able to develop a strategic concept and implement it, not necessarily in the exact area you've been working for last years. Think more globally.
Absolutely. No Unit Testing in my group before I got there, much less TDD. I took on executing TDD without batting an eyelash and now I have other team members following suit because it's clear the value it adds. No CI either, so I stood up CruiseControl for our program. Now it's a standard thing for all our projects to have a corresponding CC build which, at minimum, builds and tests that system (since now they're writing unit tests), and other programs are adding their projects. I agree with this wholeheartedly; don't complain, just solve the problem for yourself and eventually it will catch on.
I felt the same way...and now I have a 30" monitor. Woot!
