CLARIFICATION GRAFFITI. The second example especially shows the workshop’s tendency toward activity patterns: the pattern describes a solution that is not one to strive for in future designs; rather, it tells the designer what real-world behaviour to expect and take into account when creating similar signs. The pattern could be applied in two ways: either by trying to make sure that signs are meaningful in their final context, thereby eliminating the use of clarification graffiti; or by accepting that it will always be impossible to phrase signs optimally until they are put into use, and consciously permitting for on-site clarification graffiti, for example by leaving space on signs for additional directions, etc.

Nevertheless, it also made clear that the software engineering patterns community requires more input from other disciplines such as HCI. The results from this Workshop on Interaction Patterns are described in more detail in [Borchers, 2000aI'. I NTERACT'99 At the INTERACT'99 conference on Human-Computer In- workshop 'I was the only HCI researcher at that workshop of software engineering people. A good example of the different approaches was that a software system was considered a problem that the UI needs to "solve"whereas HCI usually considers systems to be solutions to problems that users have..
