One particularly funny tidbit was the close occurrence of the following two quotes.

In a panel discussion about 'software engineering tomorrow' a sarcastic comment about the failed CASE hype in the 80ies was made. Allegedly, the promise of some tool-vendor was:

Because of our framework we do almost no programming any more! All we do, is a lot of scripting and configuration.

This time the audience was expected to be impressed ...
