    Dan Pink has taken over my life! :-) Everywhere I turn, I see references to “Drive!” and am and driven (ahem) to learn more and more about motivation and to apply Motivation 2.0 principles in my work and family life.

    I wanted to watch your talk because I am having a little trouble with the “Craftsman” label. Let me explain. I have been calling myself a Software Craftsman for 9 years, since I started my consulting biz. With all the buzz around the Craftsmanship Movement, there seems to be some backlash. Some folks seem to equate “craftsman” with “one who over-engineers”. In some circles, “Craftsman” is an insult.

    But I think you exposed another aspect of the backlash. It’s more subtle, and I may be completely wrong, but I think that some managers, even in very small orgs. are having a hard time giving up Control. And the Movement espouses independence.

    Thanks for the inspiration!
