Another reason why architects should write code

Johanna Rothman explains why architects should write code. I completely agree.

Not only does hands-on involvement reduce risks on the project, it also reduces embarassment when talking to your kids ;-) Here's an actual conversation with my daughter:

What did you do today Dad?
I drew some diagrams. Do you know what a diagram is?
It's a picture that shows how something works. I drew some diagrams, then I talked with some people about them.
So you didn't do any work then?
