Excellent Site on Information Design Patterns

Vielen Dank für den Blog-Kommentar auf Peter Morville’s Diagramm. – This was a comment I wrote to a German information architect that commented on my blog post on Peter Morville’s User Experience Honeycomb. Babelfish was useful for German translations more than others because of German’s relatively logical grammatical constructions.

The commenter’s site The Hot Streudel, is almost exclusively written in German. He commented on an amazing website on Information Design Patterns.This information came at exactly the right time. After studying maps and patterns and information science, a collective of the ways of picturing information is the most useful thing imaginable.
