Who said SOA types can't be the life of the party.
Miko Matsumura, curator of the SOA Center blogsite, has just renamed his site the Whatever-you-want-to-call-it Center, at http://whatevercenter.com. This was done in reaction to Anne Thomas Manes' New Year's proclamation that "SOA [as we have known it that is] is dead."
So if we can't call it "SOA" anymore, what should we call it?
Emulating the success formula of the Artist Formerly Known as Prince (or now known again as Prince, I think), Miko suggests replacing the "SOA" moniker with a symbol, perhaps a "W" shape (for "Whatever").
Or as Ron Schmelzer called it, "the architecture formerly known as SOA."
