Welcome to the OrgPatterns instance of ThoughtsWeaver
ThoughtsWeaver is a composition system; it's a news server; it's a repository; it's a mail system. Really, we don't know quite what it is, but it's a fun way of communicating asynchronously across the network.

This ThoughtsWeaver site is the official repository for the editorial effort to build a CommonPatternLanguage of OrganizationalPatterns that will be published in a forthcoming Prentice-Hall book. Two friends are collaborating as editors on the work: JimCoplien and NeilHarrison. The book will be welcoming contributions from other pattern authors including WardCunningham and AlistairCockburn. The site is administered by The site is graciously and generously provided by Universitaet Karlsruhe (thanks, guys!). Watch the pattern language grow and refine here; watch the discussions that surround the process. Sign in as one of our RecentVisitors and find your way around.
The main starting points for the book effort are:
but there are other good StartingPoints for general information on organizational patterns as well.
The CommonPatternLanguage page has a vision statement of sorts.
