interesting read - given me much to think about. Thank you for the info.


I was also skeptical at first as some people are. But after a better understanding of things I quickly lost my skepticism.



Thanks for your many excellent comments. My intent was to highlight the (living) social and community aspects vs. the pattern documentation present in the book.

Do not question that the patterns were drafted 'in community' as both authors follow this route.

I'm surprised that you are skeptical of patterns. They don't get written by individuals. They get written by a community.

When I joined the Austin patterns group, they were studying pattern workshops and other social practices surrounding patterns. Unfortunately, the group turned to what seemed to me to be implementation and language specific patterns once I started attending.
