EA and EIT as a heuristic approach

Following on from my post about the problems with Enterprise Architecture Andrew McAfee agrees with me about the issue in this post but suggests a heuristic approach to solving the problem. Whilst I am a great beliver in the whole Web 2.0 wisdom of the crowds meme I agree somewhat with Nick Carr that it is in danger of becoming the answer to Life, the Universe and Everything. I also strongly feel that just putting up a wiki dosnt work and some seeding or direction is needed.

I still think that my more structured approach to EA as Strategic Architecture is the way to go; I find it difficult to envision an organisation which takes its direction from a customer wiki.
