  17. 17. @mariakedemo “If we are uncritical we shall always find what we want: we shall look for, and find, confirmation, and we shall look away from, and not see, whatever might be dangerous to our pet theories. In this way it is only too easy to obtain what appears to be overwhelming evidence in favour of a theory which, if approached critically, would have been refuted.” Karl Popper - 1957

  28. 28. @mariakedemo If you are testing “ If you are a tester your mission is to learn about the product and to find problems in it. If you use tools skillfully to accelerate and extend that mission you’ll accelerate learning and bug finding. If you use tools without focus on the mission you’ll accelerate oblivion.” - Michael Bolton
