What is agile?

I was later on on the usual Agile Finland dinner and one of the question that was asked to everybody there was: "what's agile for you?". This is the answer I gave:

Agile is not a silver bullet, it's not a bunch of practicalities, it's the biggest cultural change in the software industry in the last 25 years, fixing the wrong idea that software development is an industrial thing and bringing it back to its original craftmanship dimension.

Anyone who wants to challenge that?
