Turbocharge Pattern Languages

To make existing pattern languages more accessible, useable and useful.

This is a Rel8 Project.

Pattern Languages are community projects that make distilled wisdom more accessible. We are big fans of several existing Pattern Languages, including: - Peeragogy - Liberating Structures - The Wise Democracy Pattern Language - An Open Source Pattern Language (re)generative of Commons

Pattern Languages don't get enough love — or use. Let's enhance their visibility, availability, connectivity and usefulness as much as we can.

To Turbocharge Pattern Languages, we might:

  • Weave existing Pattern Languages together, as appropriate
  • Make it easier to create and curate Pattern Languages
  • Get the word out about Pattern Languages
  • Start needed Pattern Languages, like maybe:
  • Program chatbots to navigate Pattern Languages and make great recommendations from them
  • "Instrument" them, where appropriate, which means turning text into code that makes applying patterns far easier (see Tile - 1-2-4-All Zoom App)
    • Lather, rinse, repeat for more wise nuggets that are instrumentable
