There are a number of disciplines that depend on the lessons based on history and human creativity while solving problems. In the last two decades, patterns have emerged as a notable problem-solving approach in various disciplines, including science and engineering. The relationships between people, patterns, and technology have evolved over the years. In particular, the changes in the technological environment affect communication, education, production, publication, and management of patterns. This chapter proposes the use of the Social Web in supporting the human and social aspects of pattern engineering. In doing so, the prospects of integrating the technologies/applications underlying the Social Web in the activities and artifacts of pattern engineering are illustrated by a variety of examples, and the concerns in doing so are highlighted.
