I for one would love to see more diagrams available, like the one at http://www.permaculture-institute.org/

I don't know of any software available but it's an interesting
question. If you could have software what would it do?
Something like landscape design? Or maybe a searchable
version of a design manual. I ask because I'd consider writing
some software if I thought that permaculturalists would really use it.
I think that most people are better served by a good book and contact
with other people.
I was thinking about starting a web site where people could submit
drawings of their own designs and techniques. A kind of living
book of Permaculture designs. Perhaps the site could get permission
to use some existing published designs as well. Books are still the
most useful "software" that I know of but a web site would allow the
occational designer to share with a large number of people.
Comments? Ideas? Other information exchange ideas?
