One to Watch
The nice people at the Agile Modelling mailing list have come to the conclusion that UML is great, but it needs some work. The primary concern is that whilst it's great for modelling objects it has too narrow a focus. What about modelling networks? Or data? Legacy systems that (horror of horrors) use procedural programming languages?
To address these issues the member of the list have decided that an open source approach to extending the de-facto modelling representation is required. Step one is this process is working out what needs to be added and the form that it should take. The primary medium for this explanation is going to be a wiki, which is located here.
If you are at all interested in modelling (and we all do it, even if we don't want to admit it ) go and take a look. Better yet, register for an account and add or modify some content.
 Anyone drawing anything on a white board is modelling, especially if there is a great big cloud in the middle or any lines with arrow heads on them.
