I do both technical and business enterprise architecture for the gov't. The business side is almost like academia when it comes to guiding principles and directives and that boring shit.
I'm not sure if you're agreeing with me, but I did say technical on top of whatever else. Depending on the company you work for, being just technical doesn't necessarily mean you get capped. Some of the chief architects at our company are pulling over 300k/year. That's more than some CEOs for small companies.
