This post was supposed to be entitled, 'Happy New Year to Software Factories'. Which is really the message.
The prediction from some of us in this field is that this year (2007) will be the year that factories actually get the momentum, exposure and attention to change our industry in a profound manner.
It's still early days at the beginning of this year but hopefully by the latter part of it, we will all have better views, tools and understanding of this space and its' ongoing impact.
So, if you are interested or involved in this space, I wish you a great new exciting, satisfying and innovative year.
