Scribbles

Enter the lowly scribe. Fanfares and cheers!

The function of the scribe or recorder on a software development team is to be responsible for the team's collective memory, the repository of its work product as well as of the processes that generated the results. The scribe keeps the books. In the Structured Open teamwork model devised independently by Rob Thomsett and myself (Constantine 1989, 1991a; Thomsett 1990), the role is referred to as Information Manager. This newspeak title is intended to raise the status of the role, somewhat akin to the ad for a garbage truck driver calling the job a “sanitation transport engineer.”
