Wired.com ran their smart list today. If you aren’t familiar with it or don’t care, at least check out the great press fellow software tester, entrepreneur, and social innovator Thorkil Sonne is getting for Specialisterne here:

While you’re at it, why not digg it!

I know there is a lot that we testers disagree about, but if there is one thing we should be able to agree upon, it’s that Thorkil, Specialisterne, and the very special people they serve deserve our support and best wishes. I can only hope that this is the spark that get’s this (and other such, responsible programs) moving globally. While that would certainly make me happy for Thorkil, the real winners when this takes off will be those who would finally find themselves filling jobs well suited to their skills, those who are reluctantly (and often poorly) doing those jobs now, and their employers who can reassign those reluctant folks to something *they* are better suited for and will complain about less (we all hope) .

Congratulations Thorkil & Specialisterne!!!
