Hi all,
I've put together what is probably the world's only humorous satire on design patterns, "Dating Design Patterns." It's available through Softpro, Powell's, Nerdbooks, my own site, and of course Amazon.com.
Here's the premise.
The true genius from the Gang of Four was not how to create elegant enterprise software systems.
It was Trojan Proxy.
It was Encapsulated Big Fat Opening.
It was most definitely Half Bad Boy Plus Protocol.
It was Dating Design Patterns. The ultimate reusable set of solutions for a complex system. The Gang of Four's original and most ingenious work. With assistance from Christopher Alexander, whose personal dating diaries were recently discovered in a garage sale in Poughkeepsie.

You can read excerpts and order the book through http://www.datingdesignpatterns.com
Thanks for your attention,
Solveig Haugland
