Hi all: I've typed up notes that we collaboratively produced at the recent workshop at Goldsmiths! We generated 8 patterns and 15 associated concepts. I will look forward to talking more with you all about how we can use this stuff in our ongoing design work. One meta-level "next step" will be to think about the connections between these patterns. What are some generalizations or "bridge concepts" (blends?) of the patterns that would help connect them to one another, and to our core methodology?
One thing I'd like to invite you all to consider would be to join in a not quite last-minute submission to the Pattern Languages of Programming conference (http://www.hillside.net/plop/2014/). The deadline is April 28th, and so if we're going to do this, we have to work fast!
I think that blending and patterns could be a strong match, and I think this work can be of value not only for our design of the COINVENT system, but also, ultimately, as a way to make our work useful to ma
