An interesting panel discussion video was recently released to the TechEd Online Library that focuses on extending the role/disciplines of the Architect into the area of providing mentoring.
Taken from the TechEd Online Library:
"There are many disciplines that a software architect must master in order to do the job: requirements definition, use cases, modeling, layering, object orientation, service orientation, methodologies, and so on. In addition, as we are typically project leaders, we are usually tasked with mentoring others on the team in the understanding, adoption and application of these disciplines. This panel discussion focuses on the use of blogs, social networking and other online tools and content repositories that can be used to enhance and deliver mentoring to architects, developers and project teams."
