For those who don't know, I am a paid member of the Association for Software Testing.
Yes, my own pocket. No work reimbursement; I spent real money.
The AST puts on an annual conference, has mailing lists, special interest groups, and even has a newletter - and the June Edition of the Newsletter is available online.
The word on the street is that it is moving to print in the next few months.
Don't have time to read the whole thing? Skip to page 12 "The Mythology of Software Testing" compiled by David Christiansen - it's quite a hoot.
