This is sometimes referred to as the “object-relational impedance mismatch.” Seriously? An impedance mismatch between an amplifier and a speaker I can understand, as it refers to a real physical phenomenon. In this context it is just technobabble, which should be replaced with “consequences of a really stupid architecture.”
Absolutely beautiful… This comes from Martin Fowler, who is desperate to make architecture sound academically sophisticated. It is like calling a vocbulary/taxonomy an “ontology.” As someone who knows the difference between ontology and epistemology, it is a pseudo-academic term designed to mask sophistry.
