    At the XP2010 conference banquet Bjørn Alterhaug and John Pål Inderberg gave an awesome Jazz performance and funny insights on Jazz. What impressed me most where the seven characteristices of Jazz Improvisation:

  1. Provocative Competence Interrupting Habit Patterns
  2. Embracing Errors as a Source of Learning
  3. Minimum Structures that allow Maximum Flexibility
  4. Distributed Task: Continual Negotiation toward Dynamic Synchronisation
  5. Reliance of Retrospective Sense Making as Form
  6. Hanging out: Membership in Communities of Practice
  7. Alternating between Soloing and Supporting
