I am a ThinkingSpecialist and LanguageAgnostic, though I currently use JavaLanguage mostly (because of the VM, not Syntax+Semantics).

It is off topic, but I like the phrase (and I can add some example values: My first son had 6/8/9 after a somewhat traumatic birth and my second son 9/10/10 which is more usual). And I think it might be a strong analogy for new projects (which are our babys too). To check how healthy a "newborn" project is, we could measure 5 aspects after a day, a week, a month to check if is healty. Candidate properties could be (in analogy to the above):
Gunnar, in a way I also feel like a ThinkingSpecialist. Interested in applying the PatternMethod? to other areas? At MeatBall: WikiPatternLanguage. At CoForum: WirtschaftsPatternSprache?. I'd also like to invite you to DseWiki. Thinkers needed everywhere... -- HelmutLeitner
