Congrats on your paper and presentation, Jeff. I have been using distributed Scrum with small, distributed teams. Sometimes explicitly, sometimes in a stealth mode when it helps overcome cultural resistances. You just gave me a new set of data and pointers I will gladly use! Thanks!

Really a great paper. I recognize a lot of the practices that we are facing on a daily basis. We even implemented a similar client proxy. Probably because we are also dealing with Dutch clients :)
