Now, I don't know how many of you really love the truly bizarre, but this has been amusing me for several months. Laura from Vogue Italia wrote to me in September saying she wanted to write about "Dating Design Patterns" in Vogue Italia in her article about Extreme Design. Now, of course, I boggled and explained to her that it was a satire of a niche if popular software book, and thus perhaps not Vogue material, but she wanted to do it anyway. So now it's out there in the Nov edition, pg 86, along with some monastery and "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" and "Extreme Makeover". "Ancora parodia del design amoroso in Dating Design Patterns: ispirato a un celebre manuale di software. Ddp propone sche mi di approccio demenziali." The paragraph where the mention appears: http://www.datingdesignpatterns.com/vogue/small.jpg So when you speak of this book, you can also say that, by the way, it was also written up in Vogue Italia. And watch people's eyes bug out. That's what I do, at least.

Nope, Scandiguese. ;> I don't either but kind of figured out the gist of the article from a general knowledge of french and latin. satire of well known computer book, blahblah. Just having the book next to a picture of the Queer Eye guys was the fabulously bizarre part.
