From Social Patterns

we need to start sorting out social behavior patterns too. (They are the DNA to social design patterns' memory RNA.)

We can start by collecting book titles and building a research bibliography. [Ted Nadeau] suggested the first title, Manwatching:


Drives, needs, attributes, feelings, things people look for or expect from their environments, things that may be addressed or met or harnessed or thwarted by social interfaces:

  • hide
  • recover
  • be alone
  • nest
  • cave
  • refuge
  • safety
  • cozy
  • warm
  • close
  • tired
  • tough
  • heavy
  • need
  • warmth
  • my stuff
  • project
  • doing

I forget where these notes fit in:

  • showing off
  • flourishing
  • on diplay
  • library
  • intellectual connection
  • one of the reasons we met
  • point of pride, point of inspiration
  • i can never really find anything in it
