Muddy waters

  • Comment

Astragal’s favourite April Fool’s spoof appears on techie website www.theregister.co.uk . The story discusses conversations between Microsoft and Richard Rogers about a potential takeover by the software giant. Titled ‘Microsoft to build on Rogers Partnership’, it ‘quotes’ CEO Steve Balmer shouting in excitement: ‘Acquiring the Rogers Partnership will allow us to change our fundamental approach and not only be open, but be seen to be open. We will be able to change our fundamental approach by using the partnership's patented technology to put the fat pipes and plumbing on the outside.’ Rogers Stirk Harbour of course denies all knowledge of these plans, which further muddy the water between real ARB-approved architecture and that unsanctioned interloper, ‘software architecture’
