I’ve used a term for the “aggregate root” concept in Domain-Driven Design (DDD) for many years now. It makes the concept easy to grasp, methinks.
I’d like to make this public, “for the record.” You heard it here first: Aggregate Root = Unit of Savitude (you know, like save-i-tude, duh).
I think the concept of an “original thought” is a logical absurdity, so this post goes against the very fiber of my being. 🙂
