RIA and mashup tools

Jason Bloomberg discusses the architectural principal tools needed to build rich Internet and mashup applications.

What architectural principles should I look to adhere to when building a rich Internet or mashup application?
Architectural principles are tools in the architect's toolbelt, and which tool to use when is really a matter of the right tool for the job-- and that depends upon what problem you're trying to solve. For example, loose coupling is an important architectural principle, but isn't universally called for. Rather, only if the business requires the level of flexibility that loose coupling can provide would you build the necessary infrastructure to support it. So basically, the answer to this question is "it depends."
