The Architect Elevator – Visiting the Upper Floors | Gregor Hohpe

Gregor Hohpe; The Architect Elevator – Visiting the Upper Floors; In Martin Fowler’s Blog; 2017-05-24.

tl;dr → an architect must be able to speak argot to a wide range of cultures; the architect travels to meet the client & the service workers, they do not travel to meet him.  The elevator is a metaphor for SES in the workplace.

Overview

Photo of Gregor Hohpe<quote> is an IT architect who’s been building systems in a start-up, consultancy, internet giant, and corporate IT environment. He likes to untangle complex topics to make them approachable without dumbing them down, while spicing things up with pointed metaphors. He likes to tinker with Raspberry Pi’s and IT organizations. His Internet home is EnterpriseIntegrationPatterns.com</.quote>

Molly Sauter; Persuasion and the other thing: A critique of big data methodologies in politics; In Ethnography Matters; 2017-05-24.

tl;dr → 3026 words. Big Data (which so is very big) is bad. The sphere is problematized. A problematic which situates the hegemons is synthesized via the dialectic. A mode of resistance is posited.
