The things I drawr don't come true!?

Wait, those gigantic diagrams on my wall aren't going to compile with the next version of my bitchn' uber IDE? But the vendors said it was just around the corner!!

"Words and diagrams are all we have to work with. Mr. Klein. We need to live within their limitations. Seek not a single diagram to capture your enterprise architecture. Seek not a single sound bite. It is a hyper-dimensional thing you are grappling with. All you can do is capture fleeting glimpses of it with words and 2 dimensional views. Do not start with the wiring diagram. Mr. Klein. End with that as the least important view of your enterprise architecture. One view amongst many and a not-very-important view at that." Sean McGrath
