Technical Workshop: Positive Feedback

Technical Workshop: Positive Feedback

Ron Goldman supplied this feedback for the aforementioned draft pattern:

The pattern is very well written. It is quite clear and easy to understand. The problem statement flows out of the context and nicely contrasts the richness of nonverbal communication with the purely textual nature of words. The use of the short phrase “But in words?” is a wonderful device to emphasize the contrast. All of the previous sentences are long and somewhat complex, so the short question really punctuates the shift.

The two forces of needing to express emotions to clarify the message and the difficulty of doing so with words are described well. The description of the possible problems of short notes was good.

I especially appreciated the paragraph stating that language is “also about the human condition and spirit.” It reinforces the pattern language's intent of creating humane software by focusing on what it means to be human.

It was really nice to have the history of the first use of a smiley included; I hadn't known that anyone could claim credit for them. Including the list of smileys was also good.
