What is this site?

The Designing Social Interfaces patterns wiki is a companion site to the book that Christian Crumlish and Erin Malone are currently writing for O'Reilly Media.

We decided to share the patterns as we write the patterns and the book to get community feedback. We think that hearing a variety of opinions about these topics will make the material stronger and more representative of what's happening in social interfaces. As we complete sections of the book, we will be adding the patterns.

If you choose to contribute, we ask that you don't delete sections out right, but rather add your information with attribution. We want to incorporate contributions into the final book material and would like to know who contributed what. Every page has a discussion tab for conversations about the topic.

We look forward to talking with you!
