I saw this article from Su Butcher and it stirred something in my mind, but I couldn’t recall it, until now.
Not only is the image of an Architect misconceived I think that the title is having a bad run of luck too. Apart from its verbal use in phrases like ‘lash architect’ or ‘architect of his own downfall’ a more recent example is used in IT.
The world of IT uses phrases like systems architect, project architect, solution architect, data architect and so on and there seems to be an increasing number of references to ‘architects’ in IT, which sometimes gets in the way of my roaming for my intended subject. Surely it must cause problems with those in IT as well?
