Over the past few years I've been putting together a rough collection of ideas that I use internally for doing software testing, I call it 'protest' as in professional testing.  This is a way of taking some of those thoughts and ideas and putting them out there for the software testing community at large to use and abuse or just simply ignore.  Standard disclaimer of course applies to all of it. 

I dedicate this series to the Pacific Northwest Software Quality Conference and the atmosphere of acceptance that conference has always seemed to have - encouraging the sharing of ideas that work while not being afraid to admit you don't know all the answers as we try to "advance our craft."  Unfortunately, I can't make it to the conference this year.  Ugh.  Still, I plan to keep the posts coming, and hopefully I can make it next time around.  Wish me luck!
