Many people view good architects as people with grey hair - this is partly true. Good architects mostly have matured during a career that spans ten years or more.This is especially true in the world of information systems, where architecture is a relatively young discipline. Furthermore, architecture is a complex matter with a lot of abstraction involved. It is a serious business where emotion is almost absent.

This is a rational approach on how emotions can be applied in business development. Other approaches followed, especially in workshop fashion where people come together, mapping brainstorm ideas in intensive settings to get quick results.
Edwinno adds to that approach by using Internet links to support narratives on architecture. They each extend the narrative in their own way. Architectures need both to be developed and to be maintained in order to cope with everlasting change, even if they are the most stable part of the system.
An architecture is your compass for change. Both in Edwinno and in developing and maintaining architectures, adding emotion makes a huge difference - through the intensity of emotions, high quality results can be expected.
Collaboration - it's a people's business.
