Systems Of Names

Systems of Names

Objects, Patterns, Wiki and XP.

WardCunningham refers to the above as belonging to a SystemsOfNames in his presentation at OopslaOhFour. A WikiPage, a stack of CrcCards and DesignPatterns are also referred to as ArtfullyIncompleteSpecifications.

It makes one stop to think differently about each item mentioned, since they are illustrated as having common characteristics.

Are there other systems which might be added to either of these groups? Would a computer language qualify? A Class in OO? In what way can names be said to belong to a system?

[Delete eventually]Did you mean SystemOfNames?
