comment Is the Waterfall software development methodology still viable?
"...excelling at delivering on time on budget software that meets user expectations" - And if the users expectations are not met?

I haven't ever worked in a project that have fulfilled even one of these prerequisites. :)

Exactly. These scripts are testing event-based, complex software :) The 'doing nothing' event is a very ambiguous one.

I see your points here. Ok, so testing a feature like this might be ok, if it was designed this way. But would a more robust design be to explicitly and not implicitly communicating that nothing was to be expected, e.g. send a State.PASSIVE message?

comment Where are the next-next-generation editors?
I like the concept of the Concrete Editor. I could actually see that scale to larger (not necessarily big) projects.

Yeah, it is interesting to speculate weather things like block based drag and drop programming (like Simulink, LabView etc) is the future of code editing. Attempts have been made for a long time of simplifying the experience for the coder, but as of april 2012, C is still the most popular language (tiobe.com/index.php/content/paperinfo/tpci/index.html), and I think that says something about the need for a relativly low level of abstraction.
