I am trying to shake my cob-webbed memory for a link. The document/whitepaper (possibly by 37-signals or friends?) was about designing a page/module by going “top down” from the napkin-drawing down into the data layer, first drawing the basic frame fo the page as simply as possible, then identifying the basic objects represented by the drawing (modules), then identifying relationships with the modules (BDD “shoulds” and “haves”), and then finally identifying the data layer to support storage of the modules.
So, now that I outlined the document, does someone have better memory than I and can find the original link or download?
Thanks so much for your memory!
