    Great work Al. Although I scanned it (supposed to be working) it reads well, and the ideas are interesting. Bookmarked for tomorrow.

    It's a good overview. One thing that seemed lacking is how all this is captured (documented), although the examples section shows various ways it can be documented.

    Thats true.

    Here is a snapshot of what I've done to date. Should have possibly threw that in too.

    Worth looking at live style guides and pattern libraries, like SC5 for ongoing maintenance.

    It seems like the current buzz word in the design industry and everyone wants one. But how exactly can a product benefit from having a living, breathing design language? I’m going to try break down the very basics so you can understand why it’s needed. Creating an underlying language will unite our design philosophies and methodologies across our platform.
