Do you think that the concept of a software architect in corporate IT
departments will ever catch on?

What to do think the impact of such an industry wide adoption would be on
the state of software development as it exists today?

One could state that software development is not comparable to building
architecture because buildings last and software changes constantly. Does
the opinion modify the use of architecture as a model for software or is
software engineering more appropriate?

Since we have .NET and Java, should this be the most important target for
organizations or is this simply a philosophical issue not worthy of

Who should be architects? Are developers today a version of Medieval Masons
who should rise to become today's architects or are different type of people
needed (technical hands on vs. high-level designers/business)?

Is architecture appropriate for all software or merely appropriate for
enterprise level applications?

What are you own questions?
