When I started the “who is” serie, I wrote all the introductions. While working on the book version, I started asking people who proposed other people if they wanted to write the introductions.

At that moment our team started to wonder if we make clear what introductions I had written and which were written by other people. And we started experimenting with some of the introductions.

Will you have a look at these two introductions and tell us which one you like most. And if you want to give more feedback, please use the perfection game.

Version 1 written in third person.

Chris was invited by Liz Keogh Like Liz said, Chris is one of these guys we wonder what he will come up with next. He is also one of the people that you could (will?) run into at a bar at an agile conference and talk with until the morning. Yves has talked with Chris for hours about all kind of subjects, and not one minute was boring. Even ordering drinks is funny and you might learn something about agile or the financial world he lives in. During these talks, Chris will most definitely tell you jokes about other agilists. Don’t confuse that for not respecting the people he talks about.

 

Version 2: written in first person.

    Hi Yves,

    I like the introduction in first person best.
    Why? It feels more personal
    What would make it more perfect is when I review/edit the introduction I wrote, when needed
    Kind regards
    Mary

    More direct, more to the point.
