Edgardo Vega's Blog Making it through the day one post at a time
This was left in my comments here and written by Chris Williams
I've found that if you disagree with every single point made by anyone in the meeting, they tend to not invite you back. Of course, credibility suffers some... but you're left alone to do your work.
The danger of this... is if you work somewhere that everyone thinks you are the smartest one on the team, they assume you're right and invite you to even MORE meetings.
Then they "promote you" to system designer or architect... and you find that coding is no longer one of your responsibilities. Then you're stuck in meetings all day, every day until review time, when they realize you have accomplished nothing and they fire you.
or maybe not... :)
I find this extremely funny and true (most of it). I am sure many of you have either gone through this or seen it happen.

Prophetic is how I would describe it. I'm going to have to inquire, but the data architect that I've been dealing with was given the position as a promotion directly from the business-client phone desks. Perhaps all he had to do to get the job with no skill, training or knowledge was be disagreeable. It's frightening for me since every meeting that I have with this non-data architect makes me disagree with him for the sake of disagreeing. Maybe I'm inline for a promotion.
