Welcome to our book, _The Dayton Experiment_. This book explores our journey over the last six years of introducing agile culture to the realm of education. This book will be added to over time by others so to broaden the perspectives and the insights from this experience.
The book is in two forms, as a printed book, a wiki-based Hyperbook. To write it, we starting with the wiki but crafting it with the other platform in mind.
In the printed book, there are three primary sections, The Story, one that holds the main story arc of the book followed by The Garden, which contains pages that more deeply explore concepts that were introduced in the story for those who are curious and want to dig deeper. The third section is called The Path, outlining a pattern language that can help in the transformation process.
In this wiki, the reading journey is simple. At the bottom of each page you will find a graph. The yellow node represents your current page and the blue node indicates the next page of the story. Simply click on the blue node and the next page will appear to the right. As you read, the pages will continue to added to the right.
But if you are interested in any of the ideas that are linked off of this page, you can click on the node that contains that concept. From there, you can wander off of the main path and into The Garden to follow your curiosity. Your own rabbit hole of discovery. And from there you can begin to explore potential next steps in your own Path of Transformation.
By using the back arrow on your browser you can always retrace the pages of your path to get back to the graph which shows you the next blue node link of the the main path.
At any time, you can also click the colored symbol to the left of the page title to get back to this welcome page.

_A note on the title. It is a hat tip to the groundbreaking work of Christopher Alexander. It was in his book, The Oregon Experiment, where his theories of pattern languages came to life. These theories inspired creative expression far beyond urban design and their impact on our world, while perhaps not fully recognized, have been profound._
