Thus, Erickson’s notion of Interaction Design Patterns primarily refers to human-human, not human-computer interaction. In [Erickson, 19981, he is quite clear about the fact that his major interest in patterns is not to capture known design solutions in a general way, to support training and discussion within a design organization, or to achieve the “Quality Without a Name”. Nevertheless, he recognizes the idea that other research efforts are looking at the pattern idea for those reasons and consequentially applying them to user interface design and implementation.

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.
