Software testing as two core questions:
- What would happen if …?
- A tester is someone who ask questions and do what the users would never do ,
- A good tester asks good questions
- Does it matter?
- Are you OK with this?
- Is it something that matters to someone who matters?
Very related to Testing AND Checking
- Checking is something that we do with the motivation of confirming existing beliefs.
- Testing is a process of exploration, discovery, investigation, and learning.

And I got to try my new-found quest to ask open questions. To search for things – but look out of the corner of the eye for oddities and what-ifs. […]
