The Pattern Language Network

Taming web2.0 in Higher Education

Planet @ LKL Knowledge Seminar, 30 Jan 2008

Posted by yishaym on February 7, 2008

these are the slides I used at the talk I gave at the knowlege lab. I was hoping to have the video & audio tracks to attach, but there was a technical glitch, and I decided not to wait for the slight chance that something will be salvaged.

Overall, response was very good. I think that for the first time in my life I managed to come up with an explanation of “what is a pattern and what is a pattern language” that appealed to the uninitiated.

Quite a few people commented on the visual aspects of patterns and pattern languages, and saw a lot of value in expanding that theme.

I got a very important warning: avoid the content-neutral path. Learning is always a learning of something in some context. We should engage with users who are applying the technology to a clear need, rather then exploring it for its own sake.
