Abstract: Modern software architecting increasingly often takes place
in geographically distributed contexts involving teams of professionals
and customers with different backgrounds and roles. So far, attention
and effort have been mainly dedicated to individuals sharing already
formalized knowledge and less to social, informal collaboration. Fur-
thermore, in Web 2.0 contexts, little to no attention has been given to
practitioners carrying out complex, collaborative, and knowledge-
intensive tasks in organizational contexts.
This chapter shows how we can effectively support the combination
of formal and informal collaboration and build a Virtual Community for
architectural knowledge sharing. We present a set of collaboration sce-
narios that define a conceptual model for such a Virtual Community. A
solution in this area would realize the expectations of companies in-
volved in IT and working in distributed settings to effectively exploit
their expertise, and turn their professional knowledge into a global IT
