      Nice writeup Dan! Really clear explanation. In Cambridge dictionary
      agile basically means: "the ability to move quickly and easily" which
      kinda pickup where most people thought that agile is about "delivering
      software quickly" when it could also be interpreted as "able to adapt
      quickly". I reckon the meaning in merriam-webster would make more
      sense what agile really means: "having a quick resourceful and
      adaptable character".
