A week in Tweets: 18-24 Oct 09
And finally the Tweets and links from the week during and after the TOGAF Hong Kong conference. (See the earlier post for the Twitterstream at the conference itself.)
Start off with enterprise-architecture, since that was the focus for the week for me:
- stevenunn: Robert Xu #oghk describes Chinese management philosophy, Confucius, Taoism, Buddhism, 8 Glory and 8 Disgraces. Complex blend.
- Technodad: Simon Chan (IBM) use case for SOA and instrumented , interconnected intelligent network for smart mgmt of water supply #oghk

- kvistgaard: “Top 10 Reasons to Manage Processes” S. Cleveland http://snipurl.com/smy7y
A brief exchange on definitions of enterprise-architecture:
- enterprisearchs: #oghk A simple EA definition to consider: Enterprise Architecture (noun)= The structural details to execute a strategy // Or perhaps this: Enterprise Architecture = The practice of detailing structural information to inform strategy & its execution
- erikproper: @enterprisearchs #oghk That would apply to a normal design as well .. it too provides strctrl details, and it too can be argued to ex. strat
- enterprisearchs: RE @erikproper – yes! A good EA definition should resonate with all levels of arch thinking, including design. Does design inform strategy?
- erikproper: @enterprisearchs That’s a requirement on the definition, but not necessarily the definition. // A definition I like, because it focuses on what it aims to do, is Architecture is the normative restriction of design freedom (or reduction of design stress).
- enterprisearchs: Last try for 2day: EA is the practice of detailing the structure of a venture to both inform and execute its strategy #EAdef #oghk
- BillIves: RT @rotkapchen, @skap5: If only people and organizations could form mashups as easily as gadgets and widgets

Welcome back! Sounds like a great week in HK – will you pass through the DC area on your way to Mexico? Love to see you if you do!
Thanks, John – will be blogging more on the HK conference later today. Regrettably I’ll be going direct to Mexico City this time, but may aim to come via the US on another trip – will keep in touch on that.
