comment Is “truthiness” a legitimate programming term?
Edison wrote in 1878: It has been just so in all of my inventions. The first step is an intuition, and comes with a burst, then difficulties arise—this thing gives out and [it is] then that 'Bugs' — as such little faults and difficulties are called—show themselves and months of intense watching, study and labor are requisite before commercial success or failure is certainly reached. Sounds very similar to modern software bugs to me.

comment List of reserved words a username can't be?
This is a bit like how Flickr have done it: flickr.com/photos/username but at some point they made it so flickr.com/username will redirect. However, some people have usernames that cannot redirect, such as photos and about.

comment Is it Ok to change estimates in the middle of an iteration?
Ask yourselves: what's the benefit of spending time re-estimating mid-sprint? What's the benefit of spending more time 'arguing' over fine grained 3 vs. 4 vs. 5 compared to a rough 3 vs. 5?

comment What electronic user-story-mapping tools can you recommend?
Isn't the whole point of story mapping to lay out the whole system before you to be able to visualise the whole thing? Electronic tools will tend to obscure this.

comment Should I point out spelling/grammar related mistakes in someone's code?
@Rahul As your question is about correcting grammar, I must point out you should delete the space before the final question mark. :)
