Sir Geoffrey Vickers

I know little of Sir Geoffrey Vickers, but I read a quote recently that made me want to find out more. In Play as Exploratory Learning, by Mary Reilly, he is quoted as saying,

In these days when the rich in knowledge eat such specialized food at such separate tables, only the dogs have a chance of a balanced diet.

That’s a gorgeous reminder about interdisciplinary thinking. And that reminds me to remind you of the Conference for the Association for Software Testing 2008, where interdisciplinary approaches to testing is the theme.

  1. All I know of Vickers is his book The Art of Judgment: A Study of Policy Making.

    It’s one of those mind-tickling books that you read in small bites, spending time in between to ponder the implications.
