Build Radiators

The concept of information radiators is commonly used in Agile circles. According to Agile guru Alistair Cockburn:

An Information radiator is a display posted in a place where people can see it as they work or walk by. It shows readers information they care about without having to ask anyone a question. This means more communication with fewer interruptions.

In the context of a CI server, an information radiator is a prominent device or display that allows team members and others to easily see if any builds are currently broken. It typically shows either a summary of all the current build results, or just the failing ones, and is displayed on a large, prominently located wall-mounted flat screen. This sort of specialized information radiator is often known as a build radiator.
