You've seen them. You've probably made one: The architecture vision diagrams. The block diagrams, the message bus topologies... How many of these diagrams ever actually get built?

We never really finish constructing one of these grand visions before something interferes. Maybe it's a merger or acquisition. Maybe your company has a "regime change". (After all, the average tenure of a CIO is down to 18 months!)

The "end state" vision never gets built. Instead, we need to focus on how to flex and change, incorporating new technology, new principles, new business models, and even the last generation's legacy. Call it agile architecture, or meta-architecture, or "how I learned to love laminated stucco." It's architecture without an end state.

Also, "All models are wrong, but some are useful"

You may be aware, but it's important to point out that there is an updated version of the UAP-AC-Lite and UAP-AC-LR that now have standard 802.3af PoE. That is, they can be powered off a US-8-60W. This updated version didn't get a new model number, so you have to double-check that you're not getting old stock if you need this feature.

Reduce peak load when a leaky home (35ACH @50) is sealed
to a “fair” level (10ACH @50) and operated with effective controlled natural ventilation strategies:

o Peak heating load can be reduced by 21-32% in capital cities.
o Peak sensible cooling load can be reduced by 7-22% in capital cities.
o Peak latent cooling peak load can be reduced by 1-43% in capital cities.
o Peak latent cooling load reduction due to air sealing is largely due to the prevention of infiltration of humid air, in warmer tropical climates this has the largest effect.

Why I Can’t Be a Good Girl and Good Product Leader – Hope Gurion – Medium
There’s a lot of emphasis in product to “always be shipping.” Yet, when the effort to do so and the risk of being wrong is so high, I’ve got to suppress my desire to be the good girl and just say NO. I get shit done, but I refuse to waste my time working on actual shit.
