@neil These patterns can be found as cards in a wiki at
respectively, with the others also being available in the http://patternlanguage.commoning.wiki
What we find here (alas FFA) is a continuation of research, done in another federated wiki, that already had happened for the second book.
Thanks, yes. Silke had material in German that I was (am) unable to directly use. And some of her wiki pages seem now to not work properly, or be missing - don't understand this.
However - I now have a connection witb the Commons Insitiute (based in Germany and German language initiatives) that I didn't previously have.
How did you like the section in FFA, where our "simplified" understanding of a federated wiki was explained, was that on the point?
This wiki collaboration was basically between Silke and me, Silke and David plus Silke and Ward. See, I'd like to refreshen these links and also recontact @Stacco and others from the translation project(s) to also consider the wikis and the card deck as translateable assets.
@yala Yes I really enjoyed that section. I was very surprised and happy to encounter it!
Because I have an existing interest in wikis and software it was a good window to explore some of the general concepts like nested-i and Ubuntu rationality for me personally.
The contrast to Wikipedia dynamics helped me to understand and appreciate the FedWiki ideas of individual agency combining in to a greater commons.
@neil What has happened after print release of the book linearisation of these ideas, is that they continued to be developed in the malleable form.
Will be interesting to reach out to @davidbollier for coordinating the developments with the other language editions. There are various epistemological and linguistic encounters within each, which may want to be mediated.
