Three Generations of Pattern Languages 1st Generation: Architecture, since 70’s 2nd Generation: Software, since late 80’s 3rd Generation: Human Action, since late 90’s Since the late 2000s Since the late 1990s Pattern Language 3.0 Since the late 1980s Pattern Language 2.0 Since the late 1970s Pattern Language 1.0
A New Journey as a Concept We think of living with Dementia as the start of a new journey. Because we will be spending more time together with our family, this will be a good opportunity to get to know them better.! The time coming up is not a time for us and our family to lose what we already have, but rather one to recollect what we have missed and perhaps gain even more.
Chaotic Walk Plotting the dots on the two-dimensional space, as follows. θn = 2πx x n n+1 = a xn ( 1 - xn ) footprints 0. Assigning a starting point and an initial direction. of chaos ! 1. Calculating next value of x and then θ. 2. Turning around at θ angle. 3. Moving ahead a distance L. 4. Drawing a dot (small circle). 5. Repeat from step 1. The trail left by such a walker is investigated. K. Shimonishi & T. Iba, "Visualizing Footprints of Chaos", 3rd International Nonlinear Sciences Conference (INSC2008), 2008 K. Shimonishi, J.

Dialogue Workshops with Pattern Languages With the list of the patterns in their hands, the participants would walk around at the workshop searching for other participants who have already experienced one of the patterns on the list.

?Future Present Past When trying to imagine what kind of a society will come to be, we often look at the transition between the past, present, and the future.
The parameter for tuning the finitude would be another hidden control parameter of complex systems d =1 d =8 d =16 regular irregular d The parameter for finitude controls the number of possible states, and, as a result, it controls the system’s behavior. More practically, it may provide a new way of understanding a dramatic change of behaviors in phenomena that we have considered as random walk.
