Bruce Lee could be an agile developer

So I am reading “The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich“. (It seems to be pretty popular in the blog-o-sphere lately.) In the book, which is filled with quotes from famous people, I found this one by Bruce Lee.

“One does not accumulate but eliminate. It is not daily increase by daily decrease. The height of cultivation always runs to simplicity.”

I thought that this sounded very agile development-ish. (And he would be a good GIMP plug-in developer. GIMP is scripted with something called Script-Fu.) This is also very “Getting Real“-ish, popularized by 37signals.

…just a random thought.
