I spent just shy of an hour browsing around this excellent source of software
architecture information. Although not necessarily a ?how-to? site, it provides
several definitions useful to an outsider to the software architecture world as
well as quite a few columns and editorials detailing recommendations, best
practices, and potential pitfalls that would be beneficial to even a veteran
software architecture.

I spent approximately 45 min reviewing the website. It is a great site. The
language is not too technical and easy to understand. Very important questions
are clearly answered:
1. What is software architecture?
2. How do you create an architecture?
3. Why should you care about architecture?
4. What kind of skills do you for when selecting an architect?
5. Where does architectuere fit into development?

With these questions answered, the reader is left with a very good understanding
of the entire architecture process.

This site provides a considerable amount of useful information considering it's
a consulting firms site.

This site is good for someone trying to figure how to get started with an
architecture. This site contains a list of things to do and not to do when
deciding on an architecture.
