Rob Hopkins has started a new series on his blog, asking for collaboration in working on the next edition of the Transition Handbook.
He's now using the Pattern Language, explained here
, and in more detail in the 2010 Transition Network conference booklet
He wrote recently
, "Most days, I will post a draft version of a pattern I have been working on. They won’t necessarily be in a chronological order, but randomly
chosen from throughout the patterns. Please have a read, and then post
as comments (not here but at the link provided) suggestions for
alternative photos, anecdotes, case studies, projects, stories, images,
links, whatever you can offer from the experience of your involvement
with Transition, anything you feel should be reflected in that pattern.
It is these that will bring the book to life."
Since TW's Kate Clark wrote in asking for still more explanation on patterns
, they're now being called Ingredients.
Since then he's already touched on several important topics (Patterns/Ingredients): Measurement Project Support Concept
