Microtest TDD is Gray-Box | #75

In the '70's, an important movement developed in testing theory, called "black box" testing. The idea is straightforward: We can prove our software works by treating it as a closed opaque container with only some knobs and meters on the front of it, a "black box". The tests we write don't know what 's inside the box, they only know the specification of how the surface controls are supposed to work. If they don't work tht way it's a fail, if they do work that way it's a pass. This idea has great merit under certain circumstances. It also has a kind of intellectual simplicity and purity that is profoundly pleasing to both the theorist and the newcomer. "It's just that simple." It also received considerable backing from the sociotechnical circumstances surrounding it. It allows a division of labor, for instance: there are testers and there are developers, and never the twain shall meet. And at the time, it was also by and large *viable*. We could do it.
