Design Pattern of a Design Pattern

The Elements of a Design Pattern

Our research suggests one difficulty in building out the design pattern library is starting to catalog the current set of elements. It takes a push from the library creators, but once it’s completed, the value seems to be immediate: teams can start to discuss what works and what doesn’t in current designs, laying out a vision for future development.

While more useful than the Department of Redundancy Department, I find the Design Pattern of a Design Pattern decription somewhat humorous.  I would say ironic, but I’m no English major.

I guess if everyone follows the DPOADP, then it works.  Just hope that Microsoft doesn’t have a different Design Pattern for their Design Patterns or it’s going to be an uphill battle both ways.  In the snow.  Barefoot.
And yes, I did find the link above in Yahoo’s User Interface Design Blog.
