Abstract: "The Metaphor is intended to contribute to the Agile Programming value of communication. Previously, some of the author [sic] studied the Metaphor as a means of communication among team members and between them and clients. This paper examines the Metaphor's contribution to the software architecture. Both experiments seem to reveal that the Metaphor has poor effectiveness."
