Catching up

The PIE concept has evolved over a period, just as the services we work with and support have evolved too. This section of the site is primarily for members who joined some time ago, and returning after a period, to see what’s been going on since then.

For the benefit of folk come back here only after a period of getting on with it, just to see what is new, and what has been changing recently, this section attempts to chart some of the developments in the ideas, from

  • the origins in practice of this new approach, to
  • the first suggestions of the term 'PIE', to describe what was happening;
  • all that has happened since; and
  • what we are currently working on.
