I came across an article that I wrote in August 2004. I think I wrote it for the BCS SIGIST Tester newsletter. For (my own) historical record, I thought I would post it to the website.
It's a 'Personal Review of the Testing Market'. I don't offer it here as a visionary statement but just as something that can be used to provide a partial perspective on how far (or how little, depending on your point of view) we have come in the last decade or so.
