Food for Thought: Drupal's Pattern Language


I particularly liked this cliff notes of a "pattern language":

In a pattern language individual patterns are not isolated. The structure of the language is composed of the links from larger patterns to smaller patterns, together creating a network. Thus, for a single pattern to work fully, it must not only be followed through by implementing the smaller patterns that complete it, it must if at all possible be connected to certain larger patterns.
