My friend Morten Abrahamsen from Norway, an exceptionally smart software architect with a very practical view on things and a lot of experience building large transactional systems, has written a comment very worth reading here in the blog that deserves to seen not only by the folks who accidentially click the comments link. Morten says: "Interesting how the struggle for singular performance clouds the overview of a flexible architecture that is resilient to change, versioning and implementation details.".
