As I continue to form a catalog of patterns for the Handbook, I've been pouring through references I'd previously read, including Jim Coplien and Neil Harrison's Organizational Patterns of Agile Software Development.
This is such a brilliant book; if you don't have a copy, amazon one right now (every noun can be verbed, as in "I just googled my boss."). I didn't realize until I read their work a second time how much wise advice they offer about architecture.
One quote from the book that's stuck with me all day: "Programming is the act of deciding now what will happen in the future."
