A Journey: White Daffodils, Violet Sky Thinking, my car engine and learning

Patterns, training, learning, finding solutions

April 23, 2008

First of all, a couple of disclaimers.  I suspect I am a cynic, and I am going to speak in generalities based on my experience rather than the results of studies on the subject.  I would like to thank everyone involved in the Pattern Language Network discussion today - it made me think.  Whilst the nature of this post ...
