Inspiration on patterns and paradigms beyond OO

In Product Development, Product Ideas on October 6, 2005 at 10:54 pm

A great audio program on experiential computing (IT Conversations: Ramesh Jain – Experimental Computing) and Ramesh’s related blog (Ramesh Jain’s Blog » Blog Archive » Events and paradigms) gives me some inspiration to on two important points:

  • Patterns in Oggidigaw – using the notion of events with their attributes of who, what, where (spatial), when (temporal) and how (causal) – as a type of data model for representing patterns.
  • What’s beyond objects: the notion of object-orientation has some strong limitations, one of which is the representation of time. There’s some useful thoughts here about what paradigm is beyond OO – is it event based (which by virtue of the what attribute may embrace and extend OO).
