I thought my role in this process was to prepare the constitutive framing of the process, leaving all contents to the participants. From that side, creating an invitation link and distributing through to the core transformaps maintainers only seemed legitimate in promoting the event. The network effect would then help to distribute the invitation to interested individuals.
Yet I have come to understand such processes don't maintain themselves, especially if said network assumes these mandatory tasks are taking care of by a responsible person, in that case obviously me.
Yes, I have been a little bit childish on this one, similarily to my latest outbreak regarding #312 (cc @james), but had been digging too deep into applying the pattern language methodology on some - yet derailing - initial patterns of what TransforMap is actually mapping, instead of continuing to shape a proper communicative frame.
In the same way exploring these helped me to reach clarity about the different layers of our colletive effort, not putting energy into the technology or community processes also only increased the confusion around those matters.
To @Silke and @gandhiano I already had mentionned that I didn't want to stop developing them, as I had bad experiences from writing three texts last summer which never finished and still occupy my lateral memory.
Another reason why an initial invitation took too long to be written to be sent out timely was for me, that the invitation draft which @gandhiano prepared for me mentionned to many detailed scopes which I wasn't able to answer all at once. An iterative approach, mentioning scope, date and location at first, will be helpful in inviting for future occasions.
Is this enough of an explanation about what happened or do you all still need more detailed, granularised contexts about why this failed?
My calendar agrees to those dates. I also withdraw the idea of relocating the workshop, if not neccessary, in particular due to
To subsume, I don't think the pattern languages methodology qualifies as a full blown theory, why I initially didn't continue from @gandhiano's invitation draft and reinstantiated it with theory changed to languages.
