Survival Language is a pattern language to provide individual survival techniques to use when a catastrophic earthquake occurs. The basis of this proposal comes from the problem that although countries like Japan have experienced numerous catastrophic earthquakes, preventable tragedies continue to be repeated. Survival Language presents 20 distinct patterns that show tips, methods, and views for surviving earthquake. Survival Language seeks to improve a personfs immediate decisions when an earthquake strikes and to encourage them to recall earthquake safety measures even in ordinary moments of daily life. A personfs survival often depends on their own strength, knowledge, and skills the time at which the disaster strikes.
Social entrepreneurship has been a trend in the last decade, attracting many youth to voice their concerns about social issues. However, there is still a huge gap between those upfront social entrepreneurs and the citizens, the latter of whom struggle to find a good starting point or feel overwhelmed by the complexity of the problems. Change Making Patterns captures the essentials that future actors can consult to create their ideal change. The 31 distinctive patterns show how social entrepreneurs identify social issues and create or implement solutions to overcome these issues. This set of tacit knowledge is disclosed for you to not only learn how social entrepreneurship is executed in difficult situations but also start your own changemaking project.
Recently, the field of pattern language has been developing in various domains. Patterns are usually expressed in sentences, along with a visual expression. One of these expressions is called a gpattern illustrationh because it expresses the essence of the pattern, includes characters that express human movements and feelings, and symbolically represents a pattern that does not connect multiple scenes with arrows. Pattern illustration describes the patternfs primary content, and this helps readers understand and memorize the pattern and also motivates them to use it. But our question here is gHow can we draw these pattern illustrations?h In this book, Pattern Illustrating Patterns, we have collected 28 patterns on how and what to draw and what aspects must be considered when creating pattern illustrations. We hope this book will stimulate further understanding about including pattern illustration as an approach to visual aid by those considering or creating pattern languages.
The theory and practice of Pattern Languages have widely spread, and pattern languages for creative activities are created in various domains. One day, a guide from the world of pattern illustrations has appeared in front of a little boy who is writing a pattern. With the help of the guide, the little boy meets many villagers of the world of pattern illustrations and develops his understanding of the importance and excitement of drawing pattern illustrations. This tail invites you to understand what pattern illustrations are and how to draw them.
The international PURPLSOC (In Pursuit of Pattern Languages for Societal Change) platform aims to substantiate the relevance of Christopher Alexander's pattern language approach in all major domains by showing its broad applicability and richness and bringing best practice examples from outside the scientific community into research. This anthology of 19 papers, proceedings of the PURPLSOC 2015 World Conference held at Danube University Krems in Austria, is the first outcome of this discussion and reflection. The papers bring a manifold and broad overview of the current state of the implementation of Alexander's ideas in divergent fields. Additionally, PURPLSOC offers a platform for the research and discussion of Alexander's most recent work: "The Nature of Order: An Essay on the Art of Building and the Nature of the Universe" (2004). The four volumes explore the "living process" with its "15 structure-preserving transformations" applied in the "unfolding of wholeness".
The PURPLSOC (In Pursuit of Pattern Languages for Societal Change) platform aims to substantiate the broad applicability and richness of pattern related work in all fields, and by sharing best practice examples from outside the scientific community to further raise awareness of this approach to encompass the wider public. Additionally PURPLSOC offers a platform to discuss and study Alexanderfs most recent research work (not, as yet, as well known as his primary work A Pattern Language): gThe Nature of Order: An Essay on the Art of Building and the Nature of the Universeh (2004). The four volumes explore the gliving processh with its g15 structure-preserving transformationsh applied in the gunfolding of wholenessh (2004).

This volume is focused on the emerging concept of Collaborative Innovation Networks (COINs). COINs are at the core of collaborative knowledge networks, distributed communities taking advantage of the wide connectivity and the support of communication technologies, spanning beyond the organizational perimeter of companies on a global scale. It includes the refereed conference papers from the 6th International Conference on COINs, June 8-11, 2016, in Rome, Italy. It includes papers for both application areas of COINs, (1) optimizing organizational creativity and performance, and (2) discovering and predicting new trends by identifying COINs on the Web through online social media analysis. Papers at COINs16 combine a wide range of interdisciplinary fields such as social network analysis, group dynamics, design and visualization, information systems and the psychology and sociality of collaboration, and intercultural analysis through the lens of online social media. They will cover most recent advances in areas from leadership and collaboration, trend prediction and data mining, to social competence and Internet communication.
