DOA: DisOriented Architectures

I think I'm done with Oriented Architectures. *OA isn't helping. I think I need to eliminate "oriented" from my software lexicon.

Service Oriented Architecture: I have a particular understanding of what that is, that seems to be different to other peoples'. Vastly different. It's better perhaps to avoid the term, or at least concede it.

On a similar note, I don't like the noun phrase aspect of SOA which is easy to make it something you must "have" as opposed to a reminder for certain things you may want to do. And of course, I'm not so much for shorthand reminders. If the reminder phrase triggers vastly different understanding, then stop using the shorthand. Let's talk about what the shorthand represents instead.
