by Ruth Malan
What's a Trace?
Well... it's kind of like this:
Like what? Messy and you can't make out what it says? But if you could, it would be good, right? Deliberate discovery: use cheapest design medium to effectively reduce strategic uncertainty." Discovery. Uncertainty -- but not all, or just any. Strategic! Woohoo!
This is where I share (some of) my exploration, as it ranges around topics I relate to what it takes to be an effective architect who leads and facilitates and enables the architecting of architecture -- some upfront, but more, much more, throughout the evolution of the system and its containing systems, of systems, in various contexts of use, but also contexts of development and operation.
And yes, that diagram and sentence should give you thrills of expectation and excitement at how very much insight happens here! Smiles. I am humble, really. One just has to assert goodness sometimes, because... well, if no-one does, one gets lonely for a kind word. Smiles. (Smiles? That's a play gesture, to defuse the attack trigger. Smiles!!)
